It's Autumn

And it's struck hard.  There's snow on the mountains hereabouts.  Quite beautiful.  I'm just glad my brother (who lives in Darwin) came down to visit last weekend and not this one, 'cos it's freezing.

The cats enjoyed his visit.  Here he is with Cilla. 


I don't know if Burmese are bred to have less dignity.  Whatever, they are dags.

Yesterday was fun.  I went to a meeting which was held in Campbell Town, a couple of hours South of here.  The great thing was to look at the landscape.  Lots of snow up North but none in the Midlands.  Interesting.  On the way back we got a spectacular sunset view of Ben Lomand.


It's interesting that the landscape in the Midlands of Tasmania is very similar to that around where I used to live in New South Wales.  Sheep everywhere!  Just like home.

To finish, I'll add a pic of a couple of my favourite objects.


They're made from orange plastic and wire and are great playthings.  I bought them in Wagga a couple of years ago.  I think they are from Africa.  It would be great to know where they came from.  They are wonderful creatures to play with as they both have fabulous expressions.  I hope the people who made them were paid properly.

I'll let them say the cheerio's.

God I love that photo of Cilla. It's a crack-up.

Am envious of your cold climate, although Canberra's getting there and it's hopefully going to be a lovely cold winter.

You are right. I did love this. My theory is that anything as beautiful as Burmese cats has no need for dignity as well. Or something like that.
And your orange beasties are a joy. Smile inducing.
