Hello Everyone ~~ I hope all is well with you as it is with me. Peter and Warren are here at present. They arrived safe and sound on Wednesday afternoon, after a visit to Mildura.
We are all getting along fine. Peter has been organising my computer for me, so it will be easier to find things. Warren has been working on his computer, and also lends a hand with the dishes. We have been out a bit, and I had two trips to the hospital for tests, which I hope will turn out fine. A nuisance when the visitors are here, but Peter took me and brought me home both days. Today we have had a quiet day, boys ? computing, and me cooking ~~ A lamb roast with roast vegetable etc. We enjoyed the meals tonight.
We are off in the morning to visit a friend of Peters who has been ill. Then on to the Great Ocean Road which is a great tourist attraction. From there we will go to visit Kathy and her family, as their farm backs on to the Great Ocean Road. There used to be
12 rock formations and they were called The Twelve Apostles. The sea has reclaimed
quite a few of them. There are still six or seven.
We will stay the night at Kathy and Ards, and then hopefully call to see our cousin Michelle on the way home. So that will be a couple of touring days which will be nice.
So now you know why I haven't been posting. I want to enjoy their visit, but will get back to normal soon.
Since I am here I have two jokes which Patty sent me. Many thanks, my friend.
Every time her neighbor would hang out the wash, the young woman would make the same comment. About one month later, the woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband, "Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this?"
Her husband said, "I got up early this morning and washed the windows."
And so it is with life : What we see while watching others, depends on the purity of the windows through which we look through.
At one point during a game, the coach called one of his nine-year old baseball plaayers aside and asked, "Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?"
The little boy nodded in the affirmative.
"Do you undeerstand that what matters is whether we win or lose together as a team.
The little boy nodded yes.
"So," said the coach, "I'm sure you know, when an out is called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the umpire, or call him a pecker-head. Do you undeerstand all that?"
The little boy nodded again.
He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another boy gets a chance to play. it's not just good sportsmanship call your coach's a dumb ass' is it?"
Again the little boy nodded.
"Good," said the coach. Now you go over there and explain all that to your grsndmother."
Time to say Goodnight and get off to bed as we want to make an early start tomorrow.
Take care my friends.I will be back again soon. Love and Best wishes to you all.
