      Talking about wings … have you framed your special feather😎 from Russell forest?

        Not yet. Gotta find the right frame. It’s on the dresser cabinet in the lounge, still in its envelope, alongside your other nga taonga in that cute little box you gave me. What would you call that in Maori, Possum? A kete?

        Everybody behaving at the moment here. I have to keep Dot, the duck on the left away from Danielle on the right because Dot’s another right little bully.

              I’ll read that as contemporary, typed in a hurry. 🙂
              And thanks again for the waka huia.

            I’d say, “waka huia”.
            “Waka” are vessels: waka huarahi – road vessel, waka huia – vessel to hold huia feathers (and other taonga)

              I once made a little girl’s day when I found a white feather that I had picked up and put in my handbag-I gave it to her and said that it was an angel’s feather that I’d found.. She was the right age to believe it. I always think of dropped feathers as angel feathers, especially white ones.

    Another slice of Yothu Yindi. (Cheers PartisanZ) The death of Gurrumul Yunupingu last year at just 46 was a huge loss.

        Awesome. I also really like some of their more traditional stuff; gives me goosebumps.

              When one sees someone playing the didgeridoo, it looks really easy…until one has a go at doing it.

              We used to do it with the vacuum cleaner tube as kids. The first time I heard the digeridoo used in a song (& it was a minor hit – it got airplay) was in Sun Arise by Rolf Harris. I listened to it again on Youtube earlier. Still like it.

              I think we did, too, but when I heard the real thing, I knew that ours was rather feeble.

    I would love a copy of Vini-der-Pu (Winnie-the-Pooh in Yiddish) but if it came from the US, the post would be $US75. Is this extortion or what ???
