    The Word is in Gezza !!! #@* The movie is a HIT !!! it’s going viral !!!
    On the web now bro, No stopping the EEL.
    David Should be worried !! that there’s a new kid (director) in town.
    Could I be the Practical Possum Aunti; who could be played by a young
    Raquel Welch look-alike for the credibility of course,
    when they make the movie about the movie?

    and and When your being interviewed by North and South could you use my real name Didelphimorphia or Morph for short. Address … nearest fruit tree.
    Your commitment to the wildlife is appreciated Sir whatzi.

          The theme tune could be ‘Feelings…..’

              *stEEL band.

          I just did, Kitty – for Possum’s young tanē mokopuna. That’s what she’s talking about.

          Google: Gezza’s Stream: Nga Tuna (The Eels)

          It’s best to watch it in small size because most of the movie is early video clips from my small 3G mobile, which has only a 2 megapixel camera & 2x zoom, so looks clearest on a small screen view.

              Just couldn’t help yourself eh! Aunti Kit Kat
              But gotta say, you are pretty damned good at playing with the EEL word.

              FYI … I heard Helen Mirren is chomping at the bit,
              to play you in the movie about the movie. just saaaaaying.
              Loved her in RED

    Just back in from standing atop the stream parenga in the trees for the last 25 minutes. I flickec some free sample cat food puré in with a spoon & Eli appeared from downstream within a minute. He was hunting for it but it had drifted downstream.

    I don’t expect him to perform so beautifully for me for so long for nothing. So I came back inside & quickly defrosted some cheap frozen beef stir fry, and threw chunks of that in a few seconds apart. He got onto the scent straight away – but not fast enuf.

    There’s a blimmin smart mallard drake down there, who’s cottoned on to what I do here in the early morning & late evening, and he races around to every spot where the meat hits the water & the rotten beggar got every bit but one. Just upends, stretches down & comes back up chomping & swallowing it. He’ll even dive if it’s a bit deep.

    Eli chased him when he took one piece off the stream bed right in front of him, but I don’t think Eli got any tonite.

    Another eel joined him. A slightly smaller one, but still nearly 3 feet long. He’s a lighter grey colour on top than most of them & his 2 fins are even lighter – a silver colour, and they really stand out – so I know this chappie. It’s Nuthafulla, Possum. He’s grown much bigger from in your moko’s movie. Still a cute lad though. Very sleek & sharky looking.

    He got the one bit of meat that the duck missed – where it fell among the few rocks on the sandy-clay bottom, in relatively shallow water, where the eel stump used to be. He had to work some rocks around to get it, twisting and turning.

    The water is stunnngly clear. They were each aware of the other being there & so although they were cruising up and down & across & back in the same general area, they kept a respectful distance between them.

    Absolutely entrancing watching their silent underwater ballet. Reminded me of ice skaters, the way they slip & slide & pirouette. Bluey & Sweety just got out of the water and stood on the bank below me, watching them too.

    Got a great video of Eli coming up thru the rapids this morning. Will post it her another time, once I’ve processed & compressed it.
