Well. Russ had a birthday. On March 4. Since we’d been to Sunset Beach for the same occasion two years ago with friends, we decided to make this a tradition. The weather cooperated and off we all went! After a drink or two the men took charge, congregated around the barbie and cooked. In case you’re wondering, a barbie is not a doll. It’s the Australian term for a BBQ. We all had great fun, good food and, as usual, loads of laughs.And, what an aptly named beach. Just look at the sunset.
Then, a day later, My Friend Di (MFD) coerced me into going to a karaoke bar for dinner and, well, karaoke! Dinner was good. I danced. I did not sing. I was not dressed appropriately. You see, you need to be really casual. Baggy shorts and flip flops! I insert a photo to prove my point!
We had a terrific storm here about a week ago. Very heavy rain and incredible wind. A lot of branches came down, and a number of animals found themselves in trouble. I found two little mynah birds who’d been blown out of their nest. They were strong enough to hop and flutter their wings to get into a small bush, where they perched for five days and nights, while mother mynah fed them. They’ve since flown the coop; left the nest, so to speak; spread their wings.
And, since the last blog, Russ and I have won yet another social golf competition. Our combined earnings from our golf wins to date is $85.00. Does this make us professional golfers now that we are making money from the game? We also won another meat tray in the club raffle! This time I took the pork, since the last time I chose the beef. I really should buy a lottery ticket, now that I think of it. With my lucky streak I could well be the next millionaire!
