That is come crazy nipples, our summer is your winter. Sometimes it just blows my mind the complex weather systems on this space rock we have to sustain life, we are in this magic air bubble and people seem to pay no notice. Also fresh air from the forest is the most amazing thing ever, its like going from a polluted shitty fish tank air to a fresh pure mountain stream air, when your in the shitty fish tank you dont really notice how gross it actually is until you get released into the fresh stream and can finally breath!

Oh my seems I went right off rambling on this comment, anyhow good day to you!

At least up the street from where I live is some bush (Australian word for "forest" or "woods"). I've got to start going for more walks!!!

Oh, thanks May!! It's a bit strange for a toad, but I didn't know what else to call it. :D :heart:

You could even make up your own fantasmogorical name, as you invented it. I am supposed, as a young child, to have yelled out to mother "Quick, come and look at this kangaroopotomus bird!" (on TV). And it was an owl.

Oh, that's wonderful!! A "kangaroopotomus bird"!! That's so imaginative, and amazing. I wonder which type of owl it was, and I wonder why you linked "kangaroo" into it's name.

Considering I was a POM at the time it's even more amazing huh? She's never said what kind of owl it was. Maybe a hugely heavy yet bouncy one?

You were a Pom who already knew that she would love Australia and belonged over here!! :D

I think so :icondragonnod1: My life started in Australia when I met My Man. I'm very grateful for my memories of the countryside, flowers, animals and the experience of the places in the UK. And of course the opportunity I had to go to Europe every year for 11 years on our summer holidays, but you can draw a line under that. That's the total list.

I had an Australian teacher in late primary school and she taught us the singing 'round' 'Kookaburra Sits in the Old Gum Tree'. I loved it so much too. We thought she was crazy for shutting the classroom blinds on hot days but I understood as soon as I hit Fremantle on 4th January 1972! Well 5th Jan actually, as it was drizzling on 4th but was 105F on 5th LOL

Strange, but my nephew - the one who died when he was 19 y/o & who was abused by my sister (his mother) & her husband - was born on January 4th. He would have been 7 y/o on Jan 1st, 1972. He died on an odd date - February 29th, 1984. The anniversary of his death doesn't fall on a calendar date every year - only leap years.

Did you ever sing songs & play musical instruments to "Let's Have Music" - the radio show on the ABC, when you were in Primary School? I remember those shows very fondly, because I loved music.

I've only ever been overseas once - to the north island of New Zealand for one week. My sister pushed me into it. I had no interest in visiting New Zealand, but I spent the money and went (mainly to be company for her shy friend). I've seen quite a lot of Australia, although I envy you having seen other countries. I would have loved to visit Egypt, England, Ireland, France & various other places. It's a real treat to have a future daughter-in-law who comes from London!! She has a very posh accent, and we all sound so Aussie-fied/Ocker/Brogan when we talk to her!! :D

It's strange, but sometimes the drawings look like the surface of the paper is raised, & I run my fingers over it to make sure that it isn't - crazy!! :D

Thanks for liking this drawing, my friend.
