Hi everyone, just a few photo's tonight taken while in Melbourne. As I said in earlier post I stayed at My son Gary's house and so was Peter(Holtieshouse) Son who I havent seen in about 20 years staying there. It was nice catching up with Marcus who lives in Western Australia,He told me he will be returning in September with family and will call and see me .

Gary and Marcus, have known each other all there life, Marcus was on his way to another football game his team won
Marcus and Myself, I think we woke him on returning home from the party about 3am and He came out to say hello to us

Ruby, Gary and Christines spoilt Boxer all tucked up for the night with her hot water bottle she has a lovely kennel with her name on it but prefers the chair

A visit to Joe @ Bundoora Computer services shop to pick up a few bits and pieces,

Hi Jan, fancy running into Marcus at Gary's, it's a small world.
Joe looks like he is rubbing his hands together in glee at your "few bits."

Hi Jan ~~ Nice to see the photos.
Marcus sure had a good stay in Victoria, even if he thinks our weather is pathetic He saw lots of football and Geelong are winning for him. What a spoilt dog Gary has - right down to a hot water bottle.
How is your cough Jan, is it any better? - I sure hope so.
Thanks for your comments, glad your piece of begonia is growing. Glad you enjoyed the post. Take care my friend Love, Merle.

Hi Jeanette
It was great to see you and Gwen at Gary's, even if you were rowdy!!

I'm so glad I've stayed in touch with Gary, old friends are worth their weight in gold.

Take care and hopefully we'll see you in Yarrawonga.

Love Marcus
