Our Family - Share in the Experiences !!

Hi everyone .. Cazz here

Its been awhile since I last did a post here, but nothing has really been happening that is note worthy, and time seems to be running past at an amazing pace !! I often wonder where the day / night has gone.

I have still been making my night visits to different blogs, reading the happenings, comings and goings and having a laugh or two at the great jokes that you all display, and the photography is just so wonderful. I often feel that I'm on a world tour, and yet I haven't left my study !!

Well, not sure if you read sometime back that I was heading down to Melbourne to Donna's place (not to be confused with sister Donna, this is Chris's sister Donna ..LMAO.. yes we have 2 Donnas in our combined families)for a Girls Night .. well we had a great time .. caught up on gossip, did our bit of bitching - which as females is a very important part of socialising - had more laughs than I can remember, drank copious amounts of alcohol, went to the local pub and had a nice meal, played the pokies (slot machines), back to Donna's, then sat in the spa to we looked like steamed dim sims bobbing around !!

Bathing BEAUTIES !!! From left: Chris, Jo, Cazz, Jenni, Donna The pic is not that clear due to the rising steam, it was a cold night - not that we felt it !!! (Click pic for a larger image)

The family all seemed to have gotten into the spirit of blogging. We have discovered, thanks to Holtie, that blogging is a great way for the family to share events and pics, especially when we all live so far apart. A BIG HUG to Holtie .. thanks Pete xxooxxx

By reading the comments left for various family members, I notice that some of you are also keeping up with our families, trials and tribulations and most happening moments. If you haven't bothered as yet, please pay them all a visit .. you will get an understanding of us a a group, or as we call ourselves .. the Davies Clan .. we are our own community !!!!

Members of our clan & links to there sites:
Gary (Gaz) "G's Spot"
Joanne (Jo - Little Jen) "Eight is Enough"
Donna (Skippy) "Skippy"
Serayha & Alyce (twobums & nieceburger) "2bumsnaburger"
Gwen "Gwen's Den" - mums dearest friend and honour family member

Visiting Jo's site this week, bought back so many memories for me of when my daughter Serayha was that little and cute, and doing her tap & jazz .. where have the years gone !!! Pop over and see how cute Kara looks in her costumes.

Visiting Serayha & Alyce ... OH GOD... that was not funny at the time, Brett had just dug his trenches for the underground sprinkler system, which you two decided to turn into the local lake complete with chanels !!! But to look back on it, it really raises a smile, but I can still see the look on Christines face when I showed her the ruined clothes and shoes, that up until that morning were Alyces her better ones !! And yes, before they got in the car they were hosed down !! Not sure what im on about, pop over and pay a visit. Those two together are always a recipe for fun and adventure. Keep up the work girls, I got heaps of snaps you can go through, if you havent already, I think some of them look familar !!!!

Visiting Gary's site .. well nothing much seems to be happening there since the camping adventure, but some great snaps .. go check them out !!

Visiting Donna's site ... well I think she needs some words of encouragement, please pay her a visit and razzzzzz her up abit .. LMAO .. come on sis .. you can do it .. I know you can !!!

Visiting Gwens site .. some serious, some funny tales & pics ... pop on over and say "G'day" .. she just loves it when people just pop in for a chat and a cuppa !!!

Well, from me to you,
Stay safe, live happily and keep on smiling


After visiting my favorite blogs, I noticed that Merle left a comment on Holties blog that she is getting frustrated with blogger, and is going to give it a rest. Well, we cant let that happen, we will miss her to much, so please nic over to Merles and tell her so, get her spirits up, and lets all pitch in with whatever it takes to keep her amongst us

Well another busy few days.
After arriving home from Melbourne played bowls,had a phone call from my mate Gwen, and yep another trip to Melbourne this time I was given 10 minutes notice well that was the easy part ,as we were going down and back in same day but alas thankfully that never happened,this time stayed at Gwens daughter. Well the next morning I went to use my mobile phone but discovered I misplaced it, so Gwen used her phone to find mine someone answered it in a foreign voice and said! "It was at the fish shop "were we stopped to get a bite to eat the night before.So off to get pick up phone I was lucky to get it back, as it must have fallen out of my pocket while we were sitting waiting for our fish and chips and lucky the owner found it before anyone had the chance to pick it up. Now back home and hopefully thats the last trip for a while.
Now its joke time
A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver
a question and tapped him on the shoulder.
The driver screamed, lost control of the cab,nearly
hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just
inches from a large plate glass window.

For a few moments everything was silent in the cab,
and then the still shaking driver said, "I'm sorry
but you scared the daylights out of me."

The frightened passenger apologised to the driver
and said he didn't realise a mere tap on the shoulder
could frighten him so much.

The driver replied, "No, no, I'm sorry, it's entirely
my fault.
Today is my first day driving a cab.
I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years."

Why are wedding dresses white?
Son asked his mother the following question:
"Mum, why are wedding dresses white?"
The mother looks at her son and replies,
'Son, this shows your friends and relatives that your bride is pure."
The son thanks his Mum and goes off to double-check this with his
"Dad why are wedding dresses white?"
The father looks at his son in surprise and says .......
"Son, all household appliances come in white."

Little Johnny and his father were playing catch in the front yard when the boy saw a honey bee. He ran over and stomped it."That was a honey bee," his father said, "one of our friends.
For stomping him you will do without honey for a week.
"Later, Little Johnny saw a butterfly, so he ran over and stomped it."That was a butterfly," his father said, "one of our friends, and for stomping him you will do without butter for a week."
The next morning the family sat down for breakfast.
The boy ate his plain toast with no honey or butter.
Suddenly a cockroach ran out from under the stove. His mother stomped it.
Little Johnny looked at his father and said,
"Are you going to tell her, Dad, or should I?"
Gardening Rule:
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it.
If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

I Will catch up and visit all my blogging friends in the next couple days
Well folk just finish off with a couple of jokes
A little boy went up to his father and asked:
"Dad, where DID all of my intelligence come from?
The father replied.
"Well son, you must have got it from your mother, cause I still have mine"
Be obedient, no matter how much the Master's plan doesn't make sense to you.
Ms. Smith stopped to reprove Johnny for making faces:
"Johnny, when I was small, my mother used to tell me that if I made ugly faces, at some moment it would freeze and stay like that.
" Johnny looked up at her and thoughtfully replied:
"Well, Ms. Smith, you can't say you weren't forewarned."

Little Johnny was in class and the teacher announced that they were going to try something different to help everyone get to know each other a little better, and to help with their spelling. She explained, "I want you to stand up and give us the occupation of your father, spell it, and say one thing he would give us all if he was here today."
The first student raised her hand to volunteer.
"Marcy," the teacher said. "You may go first."
Marcy replied, "My father is a banker. B-A-N-K-E-R and if he was here today, he would give us all a shiny new penny."
The teacher said, "Very nice, Marcy, who wants to go next?
" Kevin stood up and announced, "My father is a baker. B-A-K-E-R and if he was here today, he would give us all a freshly-baked cookie."
"Very good," the teacher told Kevin.
Jeff was next, and he said, "My father is an accountant. A-K, no wait, A-C-K, no..." Before he could attempt to spell it once more, the teacher cut him off and told him to sit back down and to think about it for a while.
When he thought he knew how to spell it, he could stand back up and try again.
Little Johnny raised his hand in excitement hoping to be acknowledged by the teacher.
The teacher called on little Johnny to go next.
Johnny said, "My father is a bookie. B-O-O-K-I-E and if he was here today, he would give us all 20:1 odds Jeff will never be able to spell "accountant."

Hi all had a quiet few days after my Grandaughters went home. Went Shopping in Albury(thats about 1 hr away) today with my sister Pauline, My mate Gwen Then went to Lunch at Elgins A very nice hotel,then more shopping and finally home. Now packing, Gwen and myself are off too Melbourne for the weekend staying with my son Gary, As Joanne's little Daughter in her 1st concert .
see you all on my return
Little Johnny's neighbour had a baby. Unfortunately, the baby was born without ears.
When the mother and new baby came home from the hospital, Johnny's family was invited over to see the baby. Before they left their house, Little Johnny's dad had a talk with him, and explained that the baby had no ears.
His dad also told him that, if he so much as mentioned anything about the baby's missing ears, or even said the word ears! he would get the spanking of his life when they came back home.
Little Johnny told his dad he understood completely.
When Johnny looked in the crib he said, "What a beautiful baby.
The mother said, "Why, thank you, Little Johnny."
Johnny said, "He has beautiful little feet and beautiful little hands, a cute little nose and really beautiful eyes. Can he see? "
"Yes", the mother replied, we are so thankful; the Doctor said he will have 20/20 vision."
"That's great", said Little Johnny,
"cos he'd be f*cked if he needed glasses."



A man was in court for a double murder and the judge said, "You are charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer."
A voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out, "You bastard!"
The judge continued, "You are also charged with beating your daughter to death with a hammer."
Again, the voice at the back of the courtroom yelled out,
"You damn bastard!"
The judge stopped, looked at the man in the back of the courtroom, and said, "Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at this crime, but I will not have any more of these outbursts from you, or I shall charge you with contempt! Now is that a problem?"
The man at the back of the court stood up and responded,
"For fifteen years I lived next door to that bastard and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he never had one!"

Just A Few Ponderisms
She has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread maker.
She said "There are too many gadgets and no place to sit down!" ..
So I bought her an electric chair.

a replacement.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a
whole box to start a campfire?

Hi All,
Had a busy week. Couple of doctors appointments just a few routine check-ups, happily all is well. I was able to squeeze in a game or two of bowls.
Ive also been Cat Sitting Rosie-Jane for the last week whilst my daughter Donna and her family have been in Fiji. My dog Clayton wasnt too happy when he had to share my attention with Rosie and on the odd occasion Rosco (Donna's dog). Rosie and Rosco has now gone home.
I was walking through the laundry the other morning, and was greeted by the monster "Bogong Moth" I just nicked the edge of him with my foot whilst running for my camera.
A Couple of days later I recieved a most welcome phone call from my Grand Daughter Alyce anouncing that Serayha and her self were comming up to stay for a few days. Ive been waited on hand and foot including a beauty treatment. They havent let me do a thing, not even cooked or clean up. Ive had fun and lots of laughter. I enjoyed their company immensely, I was sad to see them go. .
Double click on photo's too enlarge .

A man took his wife to the rodeo and one of the first exhibits they stopped at was the breeding bulls.
They went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said ""This bull mated 50 times last year."
The wife playfully nudged her husband in the ribs and said, "He mated
50 times last year."
They walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said, "This bull mated 120 times last year.
"The wife gave her husband healthy jab and said, "That's more than twice a week! You could learn a lot from him."
They walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters, "This bull mated 365 times last year."
The wife, so excited that her elbow nearly broke her husband's rib, said, "That's once a day. You could REALLY learn something from this one."
The husband looked at her and said, "Go ask him if it was with the same cow."
NOTE: The husband's condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and he should eventually make a full recovery


A man sat in the dental chair, and when the dentist was about to give him
an injection he said "No No No"
so the dentist brought out the gas mask, again the man said "No No No"
"Well can you take pills" said the Dentist
"Yes" said the man so, the Dentist gave him a Viagra pill
"I didn't know this worked for mouth pain" said the man
"It doesn't!" said the Dentist
"but it will give you something to hold on to while I pull out your tooth!!"


Ole was working at the fish plant up north when he accidently cut off all ten of his fingers.
He went to the emergency room in the Clinic. When he got there, the doctor looked at Ole and said, "Let's have the fingers, and I'll see what I can do."
Ole said "I haven't got the fingers."
"What do you mean, you haven't got the fingers?" he said.
"Lord-it's 2006! Ive got, microsurgery and all kinds of incredible techniques. I could have put them back on, and made you like new! why didn't you bring the fingers?"
Ole says........
"How da f**k was I suppose to pick them up?


If wrinkles must be written upon our brows, let them not be written upon the heart.
The spirit should not grow old."
