How's your weekend going? Fine weather here in Oz with bright blue skies and very cool nights - it's mid-winter.
Mrs Ozzie and I have been feeling a bit jaded as a good friend and colleague died last week and the funeral was on Friday. Events like this leave you a bit...well, you know, low. We heard about the death of poster Jemimah during the week, actually the same day, so it was a "double whammy". Still, just this aftrenoon (we call it "arvo" here in Oz) something 'nice' happened. A kookaburra appeared in our backyard. A rare event indeed! It surprised us how big it was - just like a big cat. It just sat.....and sat. Unfortunately a magpie swooped and attacked it on the side of the head whereupon valiant Mrs Ozzie went to its defence! Then she left a large slice of best bread on the fence for it and a large slice of ham. She's nothing if not generous, our Mrs Ozzie! Delightfully, it then flew to our washing line and then right up to our back door. The intrepid Ozzie took his camera and using his long lens took aim. I hope it was in focus! The photo is in landscape and I hope it comes out OK.
Anyway, now's the time for reminiscing, for sharing etc, so how's about our weekend polling session?
I thought this week we could focus on the Borg's claim that it alone is a "spiritual paradise" inhabited by a "loving brotherhood". So this week's question is:
Amongst the dubs, how often were you invited out for a meal?
1. Often (at least once a month)
2. Sometimes (at least once each six months)
3. Occasionally (once a year)
So, we're looking forward to reading your responses, and don't forget.........
