Comments please!

Younger daughter has just had her hair re-styled - was very long, rather unkempt but kept bunched up on the top in an artistic mess (see my earlier Blogg Blog). Now it's much shorter with a fringe. Cyberspace comments please from all of you who don't know her from Eve.

Blogg Blog

At younger daughter's request, here's a photo of her and her fella whose surname is Blogg.

Talking of feet ............

as my sister, Rural Villager, has just reminded me of her enormous clodhoppers - here's a photo of five feet at (yes) Byron Bay. For some reason my two daughters decided to paint their toenails black. Well, I couldn't be left out, now could I?

Also, what a feat for my dear Sis - two awards in one day - she always was a little on the greedy side (particularly potatoes, talking of toes). Congrats, Bigfoot, richly deserved and thanks for sharing the glory 'tho I most certainly don't deserve it other than as your long suffering Bro.

Better Half Bet

Every year at Byron bay on holiday I go for a reasonably lengthy walk before breakfast. Last year one of the brood bet Her Indoors $10 that she couldn't hack it with me on my walk to the end of Tallows Beach and back. As you can see, she won the bet. Cape Byron is Australia's most easterly point.
