WENDELL Sailor last night did what everyone else has thought of doing - he put Warwick Crapper on his pants.

Look what they dunne!

This is what I turned up to, too start work on Wednesday morning.

How could they? Why? Even!

Brainless bloody twits, that what I think. Actually I think a lot more but I dare write it here.

Why God ever put into breath him, her, it or them I'll never know.

Look through any window.

I've had this stuck in my head for a few days. Now it's your turn if you dare!!!

And this one too.

Poets pimple

Hi all,
I'm here to tell you that I'm not a poets pimple but I'm not going to let that stop me having a go.

And after driving around this morning I was inspired to jot down these few lines of affection for my beloved tree the most beautiful Jacaranda.

I mean anything that rhymes with Veranda has to be good.

So here goes.

Look at all the purple trees
dropping all their flowers.
Falling down on the ground
getting thicker by the hour.

Nothing (to me) heralds the impending Summer
more than all the purple trees
dropping all their flowers
Falling down on the ground
getting thicker by the hour.

Some people call them messy
some people don't like their flowers.
But with their purple carpet on the ground
I just don't see how.

I went Berko

I went berserk (some say berko) yesterday on the strength of the BoM's prediction of good rainfall this week and planted heaps of seeds.

I planted seeds (direct sowing that is) of carrots, lettuce, cucumber, rock melon, beetroot, corn, bok choy and beans (butter of course).

So as the rain tumbles down I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself right now and if the BoM, with further predictions of rain ,storms and showers through out the week, has it right then by early next week I should have little baby veggies popping up every where, fingers crossed of course.

Fine and dry

Fine and dry. Fine and dry. Fine and dry. That's been the same forecast for Toowoomba since mid June and the same forecast for the up coming week.

My rain water tank is three quarters empty and we are still on level 5 water restrictions which means no watering allowed.

The only decisions I have left to make now are what lives and what dies.

Oh, did I mention happy gardening.

Fennel recipe

I can't remember who asked for it but on a blog somewhere someone was harvesting their fennel and asked for fennel recipes.

So I thought they might like this one. Steamed coral trout with pickled fennel from Gourmet Traveller

Hope whoever it was swings by this way and finds the recipe.

I'm still here.

I'm still here. Swamped with assignments and study.

I think I might just and throw it all in and hit the road with my guitar and learn to play like this.
