(*) Thursday Thoughts

SJ and IX had their School Presentation Night and Xmas Play last night. The play was fun - but bizarre! Like "A Bug's Life" Xmas! rofl The best bit was the crickets - playing cricket dressed in cricket whites! hahahahaa. Oh, and of course - 'The Beetles' performed as well! heh heh

Speaking for cricket... the 3rd Ashes Cricket Test starts today... I think we'll win the series somehow... oh YA!

My brother sent me their new Cairns address the other day... I'm really excited for them, but also it's like... it's really happening! Gagh!

I was amazed to realize that I've had a fishie for three years already! Thoon IV is going wonderfully well, cheeky as ever.

And our water is dropping rapidly! Already our sailing dam is at 14%! Whenever we get a bit of rain [the occasional storm or short shower], it just gets sucked straight into the ground with little or no runoff... bugger! Last weekend I hit a submerged tree [in an Access dinghy] at what I thought was the deeper, clearer part of the dam, but looks like I wont be taking my little Wyreema out again there - until we get some rise in levels. Thankfully the trailer is 100% right to go... Ben Chifley Dam, Wang and Windamere, here we come!

The 'task' I've set myself over the Xmas break is to organize 35 years' worth of sailing club paperwork... old minutes, regatta stuff, correspondance etc etc etc... it should prove 'challenging' [to say the least!] Oh well, once it's all done and organized [I actually enjoy doing that kinda thing! Gagh!] - it's done! THEN it can go back happily in the filing cabinet at the clubhouse.

Yes, the kids Christmas shows are so cute. I accidentally signed up for beta blogspot and got a whole new blog. Its at www.gammamom.blogspot.com. Hope you still come by to visit. My grandkids did the same kind of Christmas show. Lakes here get their low times and high times too, gotta be careful to not hit sandbars in the low periods. Can really mess up your day.

Glad to see you are still sailing ... and that you still have (sort of) a lake to sail in!!!
