Hugs Bluey... I lost one last year and sometimes still wake up thinking I heard 'im at the door. Especially sad for the gals, he'd become 'their' kitty, and would play any role from mouse hunter to dress-up doll. The little one that remains won't have anything to to with anyone but me... and try to put a dress on her and you'd be left with stumps at the elbow. Sleeps under my arm every night though, purr amsr.

Busy spring days... garden's just about all in. Hot days and sunshine has everything growing real good.

Steady on.

Thanks for all the kind words and support everyone. Kindness and understanding are things one can be sure of when venturing onboard this hallowed vessel ... and they're very much appreciated right now.

Apparently, it has snowed in Queensland !.....however, unlike in the UK when snow falls on London and thus suddenly becomes UK wide ....the Aussies don't seem to be unduly concerned.

You have to wonder if those kangaroo's fared better than the UK's 4x4 owners, oh mwah ! , who get terribly confused when confronted with this wx and what that little lever / selector is for.

I left Stanthorpe at 1030 Tuesday to drive to Brisbane for a Dr appointment. It was 5c according to the car and did not get above that till I drove down Cunningham Gap. With the strong winds it felt below 0 all day.

I watched the Trooping the Colour live-stream last night.
Pleased to report that my clock must be on time: it struck the hour precisely as Her Majesty's coach drew to a standstill at Horse Guards Parade.

Had some new tyres fitted to my car yesterday. 205/55 R16 P7s. They cost me Y61,000, or about 450 Squid. Here's the go: the oldies were the original new tyres and there's 85,000km on the clock. I have a set of winter wheels/tyres, so that mileage isn't true, but I don't do much racing around at speed in winter. Regardless, it's a a fair bit better than the 10,000 miles I used to get out of a set of Mini 10 inchers.

I used to do a lot of sliding in the Mini. You'd be nutso to approach the limit on these tyres.

And if you have to wait to be let in should you "consider your position"?

How do you all get such slow speed...? On my phone I get 25mb/s+ up and down on 4G. And the signal @TheHill is not the greatest.

Rainy season has begun, some sunny relief this morning.

How appropriate is this (aviation related!). While reading the doom and gloom weather guesses, an A319 flew over here, just a little south of Chez Kelvin. The registration was G-NOAH!

Was it flying a DME arc?
