Ah, it's Friday night... hooray!! And now for a spot of blogging, to round off the week.


Today, Fatty and I have both taken some happy snaps.

Fatty got home from work early, and went off stomping around a nature reserve. He took pictures of a koala, even though he wasn't interested in it, simply because another avid nature-watcher excitedly beckoned Fatty to come and see. Fatty didn't have the heart to tell him yeah, yeah, another koala - I've seen bucketloads. Instead he chatted to the guy, and took three or four photos. He is a good man, my Fatty.

Fatty also spotted this bird (pictured), which he informs me is not an Australian bird. I suppose it is a runaway pet. Perhaps the owner had squawked, 'Polly, want a cracker?' just one too many times. Or maybe the bird got a bit peckish? Had ruffled feathers? Wanted to spread his wings? Felt caged-in? (someone stop me, I can't control these awful jokes). Anyway, he is a migrant bird. We mustn't make jokes at his expense. We must help him assimilate. I'm going to send Fatty back tomorrow with a plate of Vegemite sandwiches.

As for me, I took a fancy to the sunset colours, juxtaposed across the moon. Sunsets always make me thankful I'm alive. A brilliant sunset is like a piece of art, hung in the sky for all to see.

Wishing everyone a happy and colourful weekend!

Such a pretty sky... Thanks. As I look out my window, all I see is dreary grey clouds. Yuck.

Thanks for the photos, Jelly, and the always funny comments! Friday afternoon here now - but then again when one is retired -EVERYDAY IS A HOLIDAY!

I haven't taken pictures in a while. SInce spring is here I think I'll be doing that soon.

Shame that Fatty can't take a bottle of wine to go with the vegemite sandwiches but I think Tanya drank it all the other night.

Sunsets make you feel good to be alive - sunrises have the same effect on me, because then I know I still am.

Magnificent colors in that beautiful sky AND the itinerant bird! Witty rhetoric. What more could we want on a Friday night? I say throw in some fish and chips with the wine and the vegemite sandwiches and we'll be all set! How about posting one of Fatty's koala pics just to feed my nostalgia?
Have a lovely weekend with your hubby and kids Jelly.

Nice pictures. Love the sunset one. Poor bird - wonder if he knows how to get food. Maybe your sandwiches will help.

Ah, nice photos. And thanks for the good giggle. :)

The great thing about being a parent is that I'm awake at such hours in which I'd actually witness a sunrise. And it is just as breathtaking as a sunset, especially when there are clouds in the sky, leftover from a storm.

I hate to see animals caged so I'm glad the bird is free to fly. Your sunset picture is very pretty, but like Alice, when sunrise comes, I know I have a brand new day with a brand new start.

You know, looking at that cloud picture, it really struck me that it was taken when the sun was coming UP here in Canada at the exact same time.
Just like while I write this, you are already seeing a new day, and ours hasn't ended yet. Kinda cozy feeling, isn't it?

Cheers, from across the pond.

Franny, it IS weird, isn't it? I just love the way the internet allows me to communicate with people like you, miles and miles away, in a whole different time zone. Cheers to you, too!
