Hi everyone, Hope your all well and happy where ever you maybe. Im very well and had a lovely 4 days long weekend with family. As I said in my last post Daughter Joanne, Colin, Timothy , Kara & Liam were comming to visit. well I had an added bonus my Son Gary rang Saturday morning to say He, Christine & Nathan were comming up for the weekend, and bringing my new computer, also my sister Pauline's new computer. and He spent most of the weekend installing them both. While Gary was installing Computers Colin did a couple of jobs outside for me.and Joanne Chris and myself went to the local market .Thank you Gary and Colin.

Amazing winning bid!! Indeed! What a treasure. Looks like Penny had good company too. What a glorious time had by all...today here, it's rainy dark and gloomy so your pool and 86 degrees sounds heavenly.

Looks like a good time was had by all. What fun in the swimming pool for the young ones and older ones as well.

Brrrr, it's 35F here and we had our first few snowflakes this morning. So I guess that is Fall calling, "winter is almost here!"

Have a nice week-end.

G'day Jen,

Didn't you have a wonderful time with the family. Great score on the Richmond Jersey. At last the weather is showing signs that summer is very close. I have to get back over to see my family in Sydney sometime - it's been a few years. Great to see you back.

Take care
Liz

Everyone looks happy and enjoying your weather. I keep hoping we will get some cold weather. It was a record breaking 80F today. We should be having temps in the low 50's during the day and 30's at night. I don't know whats got into mother nature.
