I had a visitor this morning...


 Isn't he beautiful? It's a cricket isn't it?
It's getting a bit chilly for him to be out and about though, so I put him on the deck, sitting on a comfy cushion on a Cape Cod chair. I think he likes it.


We're off to Sydney tomorrow - Lloyd has to go to a conference and as I've never been there before I got to tag along for the ride. I am so excited! I can't wait to see the Opera House in real life. I've seen photographs of it for years and always thought it was so beautiful.
Now, should I take my fancy smanchy camera or not? I'm only allowed hand baggage, and it's big...suppose I only need one pair of shoes though...

    Your gray print is very artistic, but I have real problems reading it. Since you have a lot to say, this would be very nice.

  12. Great pictures! We have lots of those little green guys in Australia - we just call them grasshoppers. Enjoy your time in Sydney! I would definitely bring the camera.
