O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'

I am much happier now.

The bullying, lying, homophobic, misogynistic, science- hating climate change denier has been deposed. He can do no more damage to the future of Australia.

I am happy to now leave things to Malcolm Turnbull who is very smart, believes in gay marriage, believes in climate change and is someone who wants Australia to be a republic. I am very happy to have him as my Prime Minister.

So I say to Malcolm.

And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!
He chortled in his joy.

Things are sort of settling down. The cats are now OK with Georgia except when she gallops after them. Sissi sometimes forgets that all she has to do is stop and give Georgia the death stare and that will end the problem.

Monika is still a bit timid and has not yet mastered the death stare but today was sleeping in the bed with Sissi – only a few feet away from Georgia.

I am about to start feeding the birds again. I have not given them any feed this summer because it apparently makes them to reliant on this form of sustenance.

I have been feeding the squirrels but I don’t know why.

Cate said I should get a blue car but I wanted a brown one so she gave in and let me buy a brown one but the man just told me that the brown one he got did not have all the gizmos that I wanted so I am now getting a blue one.

The colts had a very bad start to the season. From the way the played it appeared that they had only just met each other five minutes before the game started. In fact some of them looked like they had not played football before.

I am sure they will get better – and the basis that they could not get worse.


  1. You have y(superscript e) best blog.

  2. As soon as I read "blue car" I immediately thought of the Bugatti Gran Turismo. Are you getting a BGT? I didn't know it eXisted until about 2 days ago.

  3. I loved your 'dont know why' with the squirrels. I sometimes feel the same way about feeding the stray dog Prince-Princess-Shasta-Georgia that appears not quite every other day but is extremely timid. Tamie is afraid she will freeze this winter and I have suggested we put a small doghouse with an electric heater on our front porch.

  4. I would have bought a BGT but I could not fit it in the garage and really don't need to do over 35 mph when I go to the shops. I think the doghouse/heater idea is terrific. I just cant understand why people get dogs and cannot look after them.

    1. Actually this particular dog ran away from our neighbors about 200 yards to the southeast, and stays mainly in the backyard of the one house about equidistant between the owner and my house. She ventures out for food but won't let humans be anywhere near enough to pet her. I can put a piece of cheese on my sidewalk and she will get within about 4 feet of me, but only long enough to snatch up the cheese. She was an indoor dog, I saw photographs from the owner the day she was getting her hair worked on by my wife. My wife had no idea she was our neighbor. My wife just started talking about a stray dog and it just happened to be hers. But she has tried to get the dog back but it refuses. I have never experienced anything canine quite like this situation before.

    2. That is truly odd, yes she needs a dog house.

    3. And then this afternoon I walked into my wife's hair salon and I found out she was cutting the hair of the five year old boy who used to have the stray dog. He told me he was sad that she had ran away. Then I found out she had been a rescued dog from a shelter in the city to the east of us.

  5. Wonderful way to wake up yesterday to such joyous news. A PM we can be proud of and who won't embarrass us. I'm sure it won't be long before the 2 cats are snuggling up to Georgia or have kicked her out of her bed, leaving her with a confused look on her face.

  6. I knew you would be very happy with the swift exit of the idjit PM. The only problem with the new guy is that he seems to think John Key is OK.

  7. Sandy: She always has a confused look on her face. She wonder why when she bounds around like a lunatic the cats just hiss at her and will not play.

    Alexia: Don't let him fool you. He always said he would support Tony Abbott.

  8. I did think of you when I heard the PM news. There must be something in the water but the Lions sucked too.

  9. So you finally got the trans am then?

  10. fmc: We seem to be surrounded by things that suck.

    lenny: Yes it is my dream come true at last.
