Someone left these behind recently when they came visiting our place and I just rescued the photo Feb 1st, 2010.
Its nearly Christmas
Where has this year gone? It seems the older we get the faster time goes.
This little snowflake was a gift from a very dear friend. An ornament
such as this is the only way we would see snow in December in

Koala in a tree
The dogs were putting on quite an act, then I noticed why, the little

we won't be back until about June 3.
