    I thought you meant you'd come back here when your insanity returns, implying that only the insane would spend time here. Which of course may be right. I think Bear is a wonderful dog and Im glad that you have found him to look after you.

    Best wishes Bruce. I'm glad you have such a good pal.
    Money may not buy happiness, but it can buy a boat that will pull right up next to it!

    Sitting on the back verandah yesterday afternoon with a beer and watched a blood red sunset.

    Sitting on mine tonight with coffee and cake after a wake for a local woman who died last week.
    Wind still SW, but not as strong.

    The whole Tweed Valley was socked out with smoke today. Pretty much a twilight sun all day. There's a southerly predicted so it may clear, anyway I bought some P2 dust masks today just in case it gets worse.

    Weeks of dry weather and the days I plan for part 2 of the cabin side repair rain and thunderstorms are predicted, bloody typical.

    Not particularly, but the family has been here since 1948. She was a concentration camp survivor born in 1929. He was in a labour battalion but died 10 years ago.

    Beautiful night for sitting in the tree house and being deafened by kookaburras overhead. A few ales by my side. After a week of SW gales proscribing sailing today…..no wind at all, all day.

    10.15, still as. A bright 3/4 moon with a big ring around it. Grandma would say rain is coming.
    A great night for a moonlight paddle if I'd thought of it earlier.

    Should have my "new" camera this week so I thought I'd hunt down a remote control app for it. Found what I wanted for the tablet but my iPhone 3 is just too old. I might have to resurrect the Samsung...or buy a new phone.

    Been hot and smoky here today but the southerly has come through as I type. It's supposed to be around 30 knots but nothing like that yet.I'm building a kitchen so no boat work for a little while. But, soon!

    We count ourselves lucky our smoke haze pollution levels have been moderate in comparison to down south, with the well established Northerlies helping our air quality. Interesting to note smoke levels increased in the hinterland while stopping by Carol Sibley’s place .
    Carol is getting on with life the houses have just received a new earthly green paint job and she has installed a Solarhart hot water system, and has been cleaning out the shed

    WB gaff rig and other work is proceeding at a snails pace further impacted by injuring my bad leg.

    How's this for a trailer!?

    They've just launched a big cat here this morning and the new mast arrived on this trailer - from Qld.
