A remaining bottlebrush bloom, or Callistemon, in Sister's garden.
R came across this home film when he was clearing out some old things but he doesn't know what it is on it. It probably isn't The Sound of Music. It may well be a home movie, taken either here or in England, or it could be a movie that people would watch in the privacy of their own home, alone or with that very special person in their life. If it is a home movie, we would like to transfer it to digital. But how can we check? We are not going to take it to be digitised without knowing what is on it. Does Processed by Kodak tell us anything?
This would be one of the most dangerous tram stops in Melbourne and it is right below us. The boys of Melbourne Grammar are supervised by a teacher at the stop before here but many come to this stop, buying something in McDonalds along the way. They run across the road amid traffic and it is a miracle none of been hit, that I know of.
Our cutlery drawer is not too untidy.
The same can't be said for the drawer below. These two white containers have some history. They came from Dairy Bell Ice Cream in Glenhuntly Road, Elsternwick, and of course once contained ice cream. They used to just throw them out. Perhaps that is why the long established company has closed down. We are not great ice cream eaters, but Sister bought some a day or so before Dairy Bell closed and gave it to us and we still have it.....taking up freezer space.
Paper hanging in the Degraves Street subway. Why?
ANZ bank building. As a new building, its a bit different.
A couple of balloon photos for EC.
It was a lovely morning to be 'up and about'.
Some interesting light.
A cruise ship arriving at Station Pier (probably the Italian ship we saw in Sydney Harbour). The Queen Mary 2 is almost the last cruise ship to visit Melbourne for the season. She arrives on Friday, which was two days ago when you read this. Sadly I will be at work. Later: I did see her arrive, in the pitch dark. If you recall, we did see her in Sydney Harbour and she is a big big ship.
Another week, another floor on The Manor construction, but oh, look, what has happened to block of four flats behind?
I suppose for twenty years we have passed through North Geelong on the way to somewhere. In earlier days it was to visit our friend in the Western District and then latterly since Sister moved to Geelong and then The Bellarine. We have always stopped at the Scottish Restaurant, sometime just for a thick shake, sometimes for something more substantial. It was the perfect place to give the dogs a break, to run around and do what dogs do. During one such break, Toby went into the creek and we had a wet dog to deal with and little to dry him off with, never mind the mud. How long does a car take to get rid of wet dog smell? I am sure plenty of you know, but I forget. We still always stop there, perhaps now more because we like to get out and stretch our own ageing limbs.
I can't remember where I came across this. Unlike Samantha, Endora in Bewitched often used her powers for evil, or at least to benefit herself or disadvantage the long suffering Darrin. Yep, I think I would do the same.
