MONDAY MIRTH

No additional words needed:






When you've been retired a number of years as we have the days tend to roll into one another but fortuantely, so far, we do know which day of the week it is and the date too.

MONDAY MIRTH

Our Candy is somewhat like this.  She comes when called and is quite obedient, loves to be with us and yet still retains the haughtiness of a cat when she feels so inclined.  😊

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

As you know I love to scroll through YouTube searching for songs from my earlier days.  Came across this one which was a big favourite of mine.  It is "Big Bad John" performed by Jimmy Dean.  Hope you will enjoy it along with me.

MONDAY MIRTH

Well I think I'm normal but there are others.............






Hope this managed to bring a grin to your face and keep smiling through the coming week.

FRIDAY FAVOURITES

I found this on YouTube and as I have always loved the tune I found this very interesting, interesting enough to share it with you.  The tune is Unchained Melody.   I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did and a word of warning....the sound does tend to rise and fall somewhat depending on the artist performing.

WEDNESDAY WISDOM

I don't think I've ever hated anyone and doubt anyone has ever been jealous of me but I found these words very profound.

TUESDAY CHAT

....and so our Indian summer continues on and on without a break in sight.  This is our third day in the high 30ºs and the rest of the week doesn't drop below 30ºC/86ºF.  We were congratulating ourselves on having a much milder summer (coolest in 10 years) but are well and truly making up for it this autumn.

Phil can never make out why our seasons in Oz always change on the 1st of the month (Jan, March, June and Sept) whereas in the northern hemisphere they always change on the 21st or 22nd.  Does anyone know why this is I wonder?   Is it a political thing or what?   Someone must know the answer to that question.  Do you?


I had blood tests yesterday week but so far no results have arrived.  Yesterday was a public holiday in Perth so no mail.  Maybe the results will arrive tomorrow, hopefully. Sometimes they forget to send results to me and if there is any bad results I'll get a little letter from Dr Ken asking me to make an appointment.  I like to get a copy and then I know exactly whether I will need to see him or not.  Just trying to find out why I'm getting little aches and pains I've not had before.


Not much else to report as in this weather I don't go out and about, or even into the garden for that matter.  Just pop out and check on my frangipani and take a few snaps.  Those of us who belong to the Frangipani Group of Perth put pictures on there so everyone knows who is doing what.  It's as bit of fun and some of them have so many glorious blooms.   My plants are in pots and I only have about 10 but they bring me a lot of joy and take very little looking after which suits me.


These are four photos I took this week...they are 1) Puu Kahea 2) George Brown 3) Cotton Candy and 4) the traditional white that you will find in many old gardens.  It may be a common one and there are many beautiful colours but to me the white is very special.  All of them love the hot weather.
