  1. The Love of music can actually make you do a lot of stuffs outdoor; stuffs like singing aloud off-key unknowingly, dancing and the likes.

        When I hear someone singing with headphones, I realise what a fool I must sound when I have done this….there was a bloke doing this in the library and sounding like a real plonker, totally offkey 😀

    Pooklet (name pending) gets fed while Bluey builds new nest

      Is that there new home? Close by the water .. you may have to step in before the floods come. Do they home and life insurance. Pook family life certainly makes the meaning “Takes a village” ring true. Boys and girls bringing up the young.

        Yep – that’s the home nest for now. If it’s in danger of getting flooded out they’ll just bring pooklet higher up the parenga & build another one somewhere else. The pooklet’s very mobile. Short legs still at the moment. Bluey’s main caregiver & night-time pooklet-snuggler again. Bubba has enforced nap times as well, like Pickles did. 😊

              Um what do you mean clean police record?
              Does that mean no police ever handcuffed Me?
              Not even when I was protesting with that toothy Shadbolt fella.
              Well NO!! … I ran like fark and no one caught me.

              Failing that failing me, there’s also the time my mate fell overboard but I didn’t dislike him that much … still haven’t found the boat or him.
              oh oh then there’s the time the man was rude to me when I was modelling and I had to give him the upper cut, then run like fark
              oh oh then there’s the time … no that turned out OK.

              I always up-tick the vids I sometimes notice Miss KC and her sunshine dog are going thru the posts of the day … and she hasn’t even checked into GC first I mean if she was serious about being a good role model aunti like moi… for jojo. THAT would be the first page to click on to see how Jojo and Pickles is getting on.
              Pickles is just a big fella now he knows where his wheat is
              so he’ll be dandy.

              I have never been arrested or slammed in the pokie
              Not like some Back Stabbing Felines BSF we know ..
              WINK! +2

              Helen Mirren played HER in RED 1+2. a movie to watch.
              It’s good.
              Yes Miss a rude gesture back at ya!!

              Butt I meant it to read like ‘whats the point’
              Humans can be highly strung sometimes.what saves me is ‘the gardening dear boy’ it has seen me excrete litres of sweat over the last dayz trimming trees hauling firewood up from the stacks making new firewood piles .. you know out door stuff.

              no it’s just that I had this image of a beautiful wahine with long black hair a la Hinemoa,young and vibrant and was surprised that you participated in Shadbolts anti establishment..era,.

              Our young, hip, college chaplain one day rolled into our class with Tim Shadbolt in tow & left him to talk to us about his book Bullshit & Jellybeans & his beliefs as an activist & protestor. Kind of a Bob Dylan/ Bob Marley look about him in those days. We were spellbound & being all anti-establishment at that age we were, like, “wow – that was great – he’s a cool dude!”

              But what I really remember the most was him saying, before he left, that just as he believed the world was run by old establishment people who were totally out of touch with the way the world was, he expected one day to be told by young people “Get out of the way Shadbolt – you’re an old fogey who’s got no idea what the world needs these days.” 😀

      • Gezza

         /  March 29, 2018

        Yup. 👍🏼

           /  March 29, 2018

          This pooklet’s been officially announced as Jojo. But I’m gonna file that one, Blazer. At their current production rate I’ll likely be needing another one in the next few months.

             /  March 29, 2018

            Ok Gezza That name Gezlet is just fine and dandy.
            You can teach him all you know of staying safe at the
            parenga down Te Gezza Stream.
            And some flying lessons, and how to walk a tight rope with flair Jez
            There will be more little pooks coming along from what I’ve seen of their breeding cycle, its brutal !! bro absolutely brutal.
            Am I an Aunti full time now or do I have to make application with each new pooklet?

            Having a DU SUD it is sooo the best red I have ever tasted.
            price is good, and it’s as smooth as Tullamore Dew. 🙂

            • Gezza

               /  March 29, 2018

              Well you can be a lifetime pooklet aunty if you want to. You’re a lifetime mum n aunty already anyway. 👍🏼

              PS: I see you made your . above. 🙂

              Vette has two syllables, it’s pron. vetty.

              The fist-pumping gesture has been around since at least the time of the ancient Romans and means…well, ask yourself which part of the male anatomy it represents 😀

              The PDTs must have worked out how to automatically DT anything I post, how pathetic.

              Who said ‘as good as Tullamore Dew ?’ What sacrilege !
