I really love your outback station stories. Do you live there now? they are so interesting and insightful to a past life.

And yes your grandaughter is beautiful.Ballet is good for the kids. Gives good posture and condfidence.

Good Morning lil harry,
Thank you for dropping by...and your words on the bush stories..I sometimes cringe at my writing "all about me" and am pleased you enjoyed reading them..I will get going again shortly am going through the cringe factor at the moment!!...No do not live in the bush .. live on acreage in the upper Brisbane Valley, quite beautiful. Two of my brothers live in the Gulf, one operates the Point Fuel Depot at Karumba and is the RACQ man, the other has a butcher shop in Normanton and is a little eccentric as we all are a usual on my comments too much real life am quiet...getting it out is good for me..I think in many ways....I agree with you about children and ballet is so good for them...Sarah lost her skirt during the dance and continued...was a little mortified and teary after the event but told her she was brave and was so proud of her when she kept going.... Have a safe and enjoyable new year....Kind regards, Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

What a dunderhead I am. I forgot all about the fact that you had a blog spot so I've been checking out your Bigblog site all of this time. I'm delighted that you kept up this site and will visit more regularly in future.

Tiffanie and I are off to the movies to see "I am Legend" this afternoon.

Take care

Hello Rudy,
You will be enjoying your grand daughters vist to the max methinks..went with some of the littlies to see the Bee movie and Jerry Seinfield always got on my nerves and worse as a bee ha ha what a grouch I can be....only to myself...I loved the animation movies of the fish and a few of the earlier childrens movies but the last two Happy Feet and Bees? I though had innenundo pertaining to adults....Hope the New Year brings you and your family Joy...Kind Regards, Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

When Tiffanie and I arrived at the movies 'I am Legend' wasn't on so we saw 'National Treasure' instead. We went back the next day and saw 'PS - I Love You'. If you see that second movie make sure you have a supply of tissues......if you're like me you'll need them.

I hope your New Year celebrations went well.

Hi Rudy,
I should like to see the flick Golden Compass....I am a crybaby at the pictures and will bear in mind the tissues when and if I get the opportunity of viewing "PS I love you"....I usually enjoy childrens pictures....I love watching Lord of the Rings and Harry a fantisist..he he Regards, Elizabeth

Hi Elizabeth,

I must admit that I am one as well. When each of the Harry Potter books came out I actually could not put them down until I had finished them.

It is at rare times like Lord of the Rings and the Harry Potter movies that I am actually transported back to the feelings of a child.....isn't it magical. In these times of savagery in the world it is a joy to become a child again.
