RE: like a chat? what did you do today?


Hell9 every9ne n peeps,

jules, glad u got reception. 

Tony bev, hav3 a gr3at time at the nambung f3stival.

readysetgo, have no desire to look at those places from what i have heard. Always pays to c a solicitor. Think u r right in getting a unit but then u have body corporate to deal with. Always someone wanting to rip of others and the aged care industry is no different. Sad state of the world really. Greed will end this world.

Hi DKC- haven't seen you on before, so welcome to the forum - unfortunately your picture has come out as a thumbnail, and is too small to see properly. You may have to resize it before posting.

Sounds like you are getting right into the GN way of life be a traveller.jpg- every activity earns you a nap, you can store them up, and stay in bed all day if you like.

Still fiddling with bloody tangled Jayco DC wiring. After mounting the fuse block and checking all lights yesterday, last night I pressed the button on the water tank and battery levels and nothing!!! Today was trying to get my head around that display and the water pump switch on that display. With the pump switched off the pump will run when the toilet flush button is pressed. Anyway, finally the penny dropped after tea and tomorrow can wire it up pemanently. Must get the label maker going and label more stuff as I can't remember after a few hours!!!!biggrin

Had a visit from the two Grandies in my current avatar this arvo so that cost me a couple of hours. nod.gif

Had a fantastic day out

smilesmile The older I get, the simpler I become smilesmile

Went up to Mandurah about ninety minutes away

Mandurah Christmas Variety Concert, 12.30 to 5.30, $30 per person, situated at the over 50's hall in Leslie Street
A small hall (about 150 plastic chairs set out) about 85% full
The interval for the customers was free cuppa and cake, but the performers did not stop

The performers were

Band of Mates, very good (I had seen them before), and each individual is more or less a star in their own right, I highly recommend seeing them
Justin Standley, sings just like Roy Orbison/John Denver, I highly recommend seeing him
Johanna Hemara, her yodelling and long drawn out notes, are very good, I highly recommend seeing her
Kate Hindle, a young up and coming artist (Country Western), I highly recommend seeing her
Philip Rego (Drummer), and Kingsley Day (Organ), were part and parcel of the backing group, with the Band of Mates
The drummer was as good as any other, and the articulations/expressions/posture of the organist was in my opinion, worth the entry fee, as he certainly brought a smile to my dial

If you see these artist appearing in your area, then (in my opinion), they are worth the entry fee

As I am not sure if this will be on again next year, then I can not put it in the recommendation section

Well done to you Chris K - amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it - we purchased a fan to put up near our bed in the motorhome - picked it up in WA from friends place in September, carried it with ever since. Earlier this week the "handyman" mounted it on the wall - yesterday he tried to get power to it - blew a fuse, off to the shops coz we couldn't find our spares.

On way back - says - think I will ask Chris (my son) to give me a hand - we had power within five minutes - fantastic, just in time for a very warm night and couple of days.

Oh, and welcome to the forum - haven't seen you on here before - enjoy, join in, do the Who is This in I Digress, or the Pick this Place in the General forum - great seeing places you've been or haven't been, and testing your memory with the people one.

Hi Rocket - I know there was a stink about Kershaw Gardens from the caravan parks locally -but not sure if it is indeed shut as yet. Ring the council.

Enjoy your house sit - we are in Victoria, since before Chrissy - not sure when we are leaving, might stay till end February. Got to be round Bundy early May, so no hurry.

Post re Kershaw Gardens if you find out.

 Hi jules, rang council n was told it is open. On wiki a post was put up by gypsy chick on 20/12. Guess we will have to wait n see. If they do shut in future i guess we can spend our money in another town.

C if we can catch up.

Went for a drive yesterday to a lovely old town in Victoria - Clunes - old buildings - beautiful - though lots of the shops are closed down - a great shame. Then went shopping in Wendouree (Ballarat) - Lovely day for a drive. finish my curtains today - I hope!

Rocket - yes the curtains are for the MH - teal blue - I think they look lovely - the others were bland beige. I actually bought ready made from Spotlight on sale, and altered them to fit our windows, still got to do something with the pelmets.

I used to take my granddaughter shopping when she was young - loved it. Got the three eldest grandkids coming for the weekend - Josh (23) has just moved to Melbourne to live, from Brissy Kiera (20) is studying at TAFE, Bri (20) is unemployed, but looking!

Should be a mad weekend - they are crazy guys - love them all dearly.
