Oh, it's not all dull and boring around here.

(some images might be several months apart)

Remembrace of Blogger past

Um, this is interesting. Apparently was "signed out" of this blog (hanging about since 2005 - well before Gurgle and its billion dollar algorithms acquired the rights ...).

However, remain alive - and - while legs are appendages that allow me to wander about, sit astride and in control of a motor cycle .. and remain capable of "kicking" - my mind and attitude, now, can't be bothered.


As of now have to cope with a neighbor who calls me a 'dickhead'.
So, what does that actually mean - coming from a 25 year old who everyone else  around here, as far as they tell me, think of him as "20 cents short of a dollar" (vernacular for a bit dim in the head).

Perhaps the the most galling  part of this from my point of view - is that he tells me that he has 'bought' a slim sliver of land - one sliver of Crown land away from where i live.

How he and his partner are going to manage to feed 5 horses, 2 sheep, and two dogs on it defeats even my experiencial logic. Especially since the 'plot of land' is apparently too small to even build a house on.

This, of course, has a 'back story'. So far they, and their stock, have eaten every "free" blade of grass around here; have been locked out of at least one Crown Land paddock ...

And this moron calls ME a dickhead ... ?

On the other hand - there is a whisper in the wind that my landlords have decided to sell this cottage that have lived in (and loved) for 5 and a half years ....

Sooo, once a Gypsy, always a Gypsy - i guess.

Will, of course, update my one or two readers - if and when -
Sumbuddy tells me sumfink.

Apart from that - you know as much as i do ..... heh.

yep, remain alive

WOW. This week has been interesting, politically. We have a new "Prime Minister".
Malcolm Turnbull has replaced Anthony John Abbott as leader of the current majority members in the current Parliament.

What will it mean? Dunno yet. Wait and see - but there are 'polls' (surveys?) around that the general mood is "relief". Yep, me too - though can only hold cautious optimism.

Second childhood ... ?

Yer, well, in my case it may well be closer to 'third' childhood - if one calculates from age 24 ... heh.

Brief update - recent personal news

Today i purchased a Yamaha XT250 trail bike.

Why? there are many places in the forests and National  Parks  around here where i cannot take my (albeit relatively ancient 4WD motor vehicle).
Have also recently become interested in the 'wombat' survey currently being conducted by somebody within the University of Western Sydney.

Sort of fascinates me. Have to have a "project" to latch onto. Have, of course, noticed, seen, quite a few Wombats in this area. Mostly dead by the roadside .....
but they are alive, hidden in the National Parks.

My problem at this point is - if i find 'live' burrows and 'live' wombats in this area (believe me, they remain - "in the wild") ..... should i make their location "public"?

Paranoia ... ?

"connection reset. Please try again "

Um .....
