He sounds sad.

Cats are great company, too, they hate everyone equally ;)

Thank you for thinking of me, Colin, that is nice.

Last summer, there were a heap of wasps trying to find some relief from the heat within the water overflow from the air conditioner. I walked straight into the wasps, who were kind of rolling in the water (poor things), then realised, "ohhh ooooo I am going to be stung" and then thought, "I will speak nicely to them". It works. Ohhh, I also turned a rock over with a baby Brown snake (deadly poisonous) a few days ago, when I was fencing, he opened his eyes, looked at me, I looked back, and went back to work (same with the harmless Carpet snakes when they are laying asleep on the hay, in the feed shed). On the whole, there is a lot of company outside. Bees, plus really large bumble bees (which I did not ever see until recently, we always had smaller bees), birdies, horses.

There were/are cannibals in New Guinea.

So the story goes from my late grandfather, who was very wicked...

This part is true, he was on a business trip in New Guinea with my late grandmother in the 1960's (Granddad fought in New Guinea, plus it would have been something to do with truck trailers), one of the New Guinean Chiefs thought that Nana may be good to add to his ladies (this is also true), and offered a trade.

I hope, as the subject was raised just now, that the Chief did not think that she was "tasty" :shock:

My darling Nana was the ultimate lady of her time; soft, gentle, a gorgeous, generous, thinking of everyone else, soul, she was very softly spoken; I loved her dearly, she also had the most wicked sense of humour.

Granddad would re-tell the story, quite a bit, of how he did not give Nana to the chief, Granddad always had a proud twinkle in his eye, along with lots of laughter, as my pretty and very petite, Nana, would demurely tease Granddad, with equal wickedness, that she should have taken up the chief's offer.

I can only guess, really, at what the offer was, I was so little, that that part of the story I don't recall to be able to confidently say, I could only guess and be wrong, as their laughter also, always took over (I was also a bit shocked!).

Granddad brought home real spears (dangerous ones) with, I think, fine pig's teeth shards embedded in them, home made woven baskets, hand made beads of some type, carvings of crocodiles, one was around 5 foot long and magnificent with cowrie shells for eyes, large cowrie shells, along with a very large mask (other things, too).

Ohh, and Nana, thank goodness ;) :D

Thank you, Colin, that was fun to share.

One of our politicians, Pauline Hanson, said (seriously) that if people don't do as they are told (or the like, I don't want to listen to her whining voice again), we should cattle prod them, and she was carrying the prod (cruelly used with an electric zap to encourage cattle to move forward), as she was wearing her version of country clothes, showing how she would prod these poor people.

Sigh........

I think the cattle prod has higher IQ numbers.

Can't say I found mine particularly inspiring, Sara !

The large body of onlookers was a bit of a downer for a start...

It was great with the first Mrs John. Not so with the second one, I didn't want to be there.

No. I just didn't want to marry her. She kept on and on and on about getting married, so in the end I gave in. Big mistake. Day before yesterday our daughter, who is now having all sorts of problems with her mother, told me that she was told that it was me that wanted to get married. 14 years after our divorce she is still lying about not only me, but also other people.

You're lucky that your daughter realises with which parent the fault lies...

... similar case with my two kids...
