A belated post, this was almost all eaten in January (except for most of the 10 vegies) when Fran, Lindy and Garry went for a drive to see the wood carvings at Legerwood and then had lunch at Winnaleah Hotel. It's not often you go into a pub and find the bar lady ironing in the lounge!
This is the row of carvings done in Legerwood by Eddie Freeman with his chainsaw. There used to be a row of Macrocarpa pines along here, planted as a World War I and II Memorial. Age wearied them and they have now been converted to wonderful sculptures.
Only movement along the main street in Winnaleah!

After more than 20 years and possibly millions of dollars, my father has said -"No More, there are No Minerals there!" Hip hip Hooray!!!!
The last assays of the latest "Fantastic Site" finally told him - a big fat zero!!!!
He has sold his Jackaroo, well donated the proceeds of it from an auction, to the local Community Club, so that means he can "bush bash" no longer. Mind you, he still has one 4 wheel drive, a very old Tercel.
Sad isn't it that at Nearly 87 you have to give up your life long dream of finding gold. It's a disease really and I'm sure he had much more pleasure doing all of his prospecting than some people sitting at a poker machine and thrusting money into it!...and much fitter for it as well.
.....mind you, he's heard a rumour that someone reckons there's gas leaks out in Andersons Bay (Bridport) and it should be looked into. The perpetraters of said rumour are long since gone and were both terrible drunks!
At least it gives him a reason to get up in the morning- if an 85 years old girlfriend isn't enough!
Oh, the photo is of the rock cutting saw he has in his shed. I may have shown the photo of the piles of rocks he wont let us take away as he's saving them for his old age! (how old is old age???)

In A Library - Now I don't have a library as such, but I do have a huge collection of books scattered all over the house. 6 rooms have bookcases and here I am showing ONLY patchwork books (not all) OLD magazines, OLD books and Other patchwork books.
Sweet Things - The O Block from my ABC quilt is showing an ORANGE. Next is an orange jube segment from the OPEN container. The Sweets were made at Nature's Works - does that make them healthy?
Also on the block is an OWL and I vaguely remember that Harry Potter's OWL Occasionally visited the library.
Something Hawaiian - The main island of Hawaii is called O'ahu and here are photos from our 2005 holiday.
