I am doing a Diploma in family history at the university of Tasmania and throughout the course, we try to have get togethers. Today was at Richmond Bakery in Southern Tasmania. Thanks to one of the patrons for taking the photo.
I love listening to lots of different genres in music. But my father loves Andre Rieu as you can see in the photo. Whenever there is a concert at Village Cinema, dad and I head off for a great afternoon of music.
Asked the people in my local shop if they wouldn’t mind being photographed for this challenge. You can see by their smiles that it was alright by them.
I hate having my picture taken which is why I take Davo Devil on tours with me. But just for today … Getting ready for the garden or maybe a walk along the beach.
My father has just had a hip replacement and is now practicing his breathing as he got a bit of congestion overnight.
This is my friend Moya who spends a lot of time in Cambodia helping her brother and his wife, who run an orphanage for kids. It is part of the Camkids organization at Camkids.org Moya had some students draw some wonderful pictures of life in Cambodia and now their artwork is up for auction today.
While my car was in for service, I walked down to the Maritime Museum. Read a thesis on whaling written in 1989 with lots of sources and an index of people. My great great grandfather was in the list. So I read about him and wrote down sources to find at the state archives. Had lunch while walking to the archives (uphill) then four hours checking microfilms. Found a log book written about a whaling voyage where my relative was commander of the ship. Allowed to take digital copy of all 80 pages of the log. Will read once I get more time.
Every year, this chap has his stall about 5 kilometres from where I live. Fresh raspberries for Christmas then more raspberries, new potatoes and cherries throughout the new year.
This image is for a member of my blogging PLN called Judy from New Zealand. I sent out a tweet about going to the Australian Square Dance Convention. A few hours later, Judy tells me her rellies will be there, so that evening, I introduced myself to Lyn and Alan. This is to prove to Judy that it is a small world!
Since retirement, I am no longer racing around classrooms and down corridors, so I have to start exercising and eating better meals. This looks appetising.
