One of these days I'll take you for a visual walk round the immediate vicinity, but this week has been more of a 'jump in the car' week ... or to be more precise, given the cracked coccyx... an 'ease gently into the car' week. Notwithstanding, here are a few random shots that didn't make it into posts:
Windmill and adjacent interesting ricketty wooden structure on the Malloort Plains on the way over to Maryborough. There are a number of these wooden platforms in various states of extreme disrespair and always in close proximity to a windmill so I suppose that at some time in the distant past they were tank stands or something.
My home away from home: The Coffee Bean. The lovely Donna who has just found out that she's having twins, 11 years after producing #1 son Jackson. Any excuse for me to start cranking out tiny mittens!! and bootees? and beanies?
This is Tom. A local character whom I only know through the amount of time we both spend hanging at The Bean. Nice Man. Donna told me to take his photo so of course I obliged :] You can just TELL that he's one of those salt of the earth country blokes , can't you?
Back at The Bean, this time with David, Jessie and Robbyn in the background in the green cardi. Obviously, I spend far too much time there.
This is the local Wizard. Well actually he lives in Bendigo but seen frequently around Castlemaine. Nice chap. Didn't turn a hair when I asked if it was okay to take a piccy and post it here.
Usually seen in a kilt and top hat but yesterday he was obviously having a Johnny Depp moment. Note the spiffy wizard's staff. Wizards are obviously not averse to a skinny cap at Saffs. [ Nadie and Chris came up on the train Friday night and we all went to lunch at Saff's yesterday cos The Coffee Bean isn't open on a Saturday afternoon. They had three attempts at getting the coffee order right, without success. Food was bloody good though. ]
There WAS knitting this week and quilting too
just no photos
and to finish up a rather photo heavy post:
