We're back from Melbourne, but boy, what a busy few days we had while there.
Gwen and myself left Yarra Friday morning, arriving at Joanne & Colins around lunch time. Later that afternoon my neighbour Ron rang to say that he had gone into my house to feed Clayton, my blue heeler cross dog, only to find that he had passed away. Clayton pictured below aged 14. Brett, my son-in-law, buried him in the backyard, and he & the kids gave him a nice small service.
Rest in Peace my mate.
Saturday : We went with Joanne to do last minute shopping for Hadens 18th birthday party, and to pick up the birthday cake. Then back to Joannes, helping her prepare the nibblies and add a few decorations. Before we knew it, it was to time to get dressed, get a brandy 'n dry in hand, and party on until the early hours of the morning.

Sunday : Mothers Day All the kids come to visit me at Joannes, and very unexpectedly presented me with a 7 Week old "Maltese X Shih-Tzu" Puppy, who I've named "Penny". She is just so cute and beautiful and just calling out to be spoilt rotten. I now won't be lonely when I go home.
