Stop Thief!

We had a few days break in Perth last week. My husband likes to take his own pillow when we travel. We are in the habit of checking and double-checking whenever we are packing up  to leave to make sure we leave nothing behind. I felt quite smug when I noticed he had overlooked his favourite pillow and I rescued it. We put our bags and the pillow in the car prior to checking out. […]

We went to Cowaramup for coffee and cake this morning. I have been wanting to photograph some of the 42 life size fiberglass cow sculptures around the town. According to Wikipedia, in July 2014, the town set a Guinness World Record for the largest group of people – 1,352 – dressed as cows. Mmmm … More from Wikipedia: “The name Cowaramup derives its name from Cowaramup Siding, which was located near the town-site, on the now disused Busselton to […]

Real Estate Tales

beautiful / funny / real estate

As part of my job I visit a different three homes each week and do a write up for the local paper. Sometimes the agency provides me with the keys to a house, especially if it is vacant. Well today I was given a set of about eight to ten keys for a house I was to visit. The luxury home was fairly isolated in a rural setting and the house numbering was a bit […]

Well, what do ocean liners and boars have in common? And what is a polished boar anyway? Each Thursday I do some real estate writing and editing for our local paper. I edit short descriptions of various properties for sale. Because we are near the beach it is quite common for agents to state that there is room to park a boat or caravan. However, today an enterprising sales representative expected me to believe that there […]

In 2008 we visited England and Ireland. I had a day to myself and decided to go on a guided tour. Passengers boarded the coach at a central location and we visited St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and other key London sites. Part of the journey was by boat to the Tower of London. The details are a bit foggy now but I remember we were told to be ready to board the coach at […]

DP Challenge / funny / You must be kidding?

You’re at the airport, your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices is working. How do you pass the time? I experienced something similar to this a couple of weeks ago. I decided to take a short flight to Perth in preference to driving and staying over night in a hotel before catching my 10.00am flight to Melbourne. I arrived at our small Busselton airport (5.45pm for a 6.45pm […]

A recent Daily Post Prompt asked, “What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?” So, what kind of sleeper am I? NOT GOOD! I am nearing the end of Week 1 of a four-week trial in using some really interesting equipment to help me to sleep better at night. Teddy offered to model the […]

Frogs / funny / gardening / Nature / Weekly Photo Challenge

My water feature was looking murky and so I emptied the water out so as to clean it properly. See what I found inside! This frog was not impressed and was making his/her escape. Getting down and dirty here. Oh no! Those little specs of dirt are not dirt after all. They were mostly tadpoles. Is there such a word as frogicide? I not only disturbed the home of mum and dad, but removed all […]
