Here is a little pictorial
record of my visit.
I was welcomed at the
airport by Marnie, then John joined us, and we enjoyed a hearty
chat with some great coffee. (She shoulda brought INDII!!)
Now interestingly enough,
we have just recently had a discussion on roosters. Maria you wouldn't
believe how lucky you are your neighbour only purchased one rooster!
Goodness knows how many
John has, but they sure made one helluva racket early in the morning!

what was that you were just saying Deb about how lovely and calm this
you are right Deb, that really is one calm pup!
One last cup of coffee
for the road, and of course those famous Aussie Tim Tams that John

What a whirlwind visit,
but it was worth every minute!
