17 Nov, 2009 - Over the Ditch to Brisbane by Ruby

For the over seas people... over the ditch to Brisbane ,Australia. To help Andy my brother inlaw to celebrate his 50th birthday...                                      and a good excuse to see my bliss Jud.

Fine weather heading along Brisbane coast line.... Andy lickin choc off Juds face..... Annie our sis inlaw and partner Fred


it was only a long weekend, but Jud and I managed to fill in every moment with major catch up chat.                                                                              Andy went to work, and Noel dozed off. Brisbane was sooo hot, and the ants are sooo hungry! no sitting on the grass over there!

Pat, Andy's mum baby sitting their dog Hadley... the happy couple.... sisters united


noisy Aussie bird.... these poor cane toads get a real beating from the locals, but it doesn't seem to be making much of a difference....                         once the lights go out, the ugly buggers come out in their hundreds!! and here is a pic of of the new lodge


Connor glad to see us home.... the boys have got the lights going... and the girls in action, carrying the compressed bamboo flooring over to                  the new lodge for Noel to lay. Then its count down, we figure they will be open by next week! yaaaaa....my vege garden, broad beans                     coming out my ears.


my friend Sandra and the caricature of her I painted... another of one new lodge.                                                                                                              Well thats it for now, too much work for much else these last weeks.                                                                                                                                 Glad it will soon be at an end so we can lay back a bit, and enjoy it!
