Or is it “Sunday coming down”?

I am sitting outside the Palmwoods house. The air is cold, the sun is warm. I’m sitting in a folding chair outside my shed, my workshop… the sky is an unbelievable blue.

The air is crisp and the sun is lovely…

Bob Seger’s “against the wind” was just on the local old-fart radio station. Neal Young’s “old man” is playing now.

Old man take a look at my life…

I sang this when I was young.

Now I’m the Old Man… maybe… sorta…

It’s Sunday here in Queensland. Last day of a school-holiday. Boys go back tomorrow. Paul n Betsy have already started studies.

It’s been a very good “HOLIDAY”.

The boys got to go to the Solos… Grace and I chased the Eclipse and visited Rapa Nui.

We’ve been back a week. Been catching up. Sleeping a lot.

It all ends tomorrow.

It’s a big clean up day on the Hemmerville Ranch today. Boys n babes. Moms n dads n grannies… Gotta give the house a “what’s-for”.

Carpets n cushions n dining room table, toys, drum-kit… all in the sun for a good airing.

And the beat goez on… Neighbor, Anne, just stoped by for a drink…

Life is guud… more later…


  1. Please pass on the best love from all of us here to all of you there …
