No Sun at the Cubby House

This is called , the Sun. I have actually seen it a few times today. But then this is called the Internet, I have seen that a few times today,sporadically because it is playing up. What's even worse, we do not have the sewerage working and are desperately trying to contact the Clearwater people.

Fw: I wish you Enough

This was sent to me by dear friend, Marilla (Maureen) , from Braidwood NSW. Have shared it with some of you already but like it enough to publish.
Subject: Re: I wish you Enough
I wish you Enough !
Recently I overheard a Father and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure. Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the Father said, 'I love you, and I wish you enough.' The daughter replied, 'Dad, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Dad.'
They kissed and the daughter left. The Father walked over to the window where I was seated. Standing there I could see he wanted and needed to cry. I tried not to intrude on his privacy, but he welcomed me in by asking, 'Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?' 'Yes, I have,' I replied. 'Forgive me for asking, but why is this a forever good-bye?'. 'I am old, and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is - the next trip back will be for my funeral,' he said. 'When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, 'I wish you enough.' May I ask what that means?' He began to smile. 'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations. My parents used to say it to everyone..' He paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in detail, and he smiled even more. 'When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.' Then turning toward me, he shared the following as if he were reciting it from memory. I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting. I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good- bye He then began to cry and walked away. They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them; but then an entire life to forget them. *Only if you wish send this to the people you will never forget. If you don't send it to anyone it may mean that you are in such a hurry that you have forgotten your friends. Take Time To Live.. To all my friends and loved ones, 'I wish you Enough !'

The Cubby House , disconnected.

Among the SOLD items
Sorry but we are disconnected from the Internet. Am using Scott's wireless connection at the moment just to pay the bills and read the emails. Hope our family IT expert, Christopher can fix it for us soon. Kids are away in Malaysia and lapping it up and in a few weeks ,Scott, Jo & the kids go to Bali for a couple of weeks. Such a wonderful life for the grandies. Missed the internet this weekend when Vicki had a lot of ou antique display items for sale. She does it so very well and although one rarely gets what it is really worth, it helps with the budget and it ALL sold once again. She is an E-Bay Gem.

The Brook near the Cubbyhouse

The Brook, the plantings and Mac.
Although I really don't enjoy it like I used to, I have been trying to get back to walking. It is some mornings, not most mornings. The weather has not helped, it is cold and often raining,The old bones don't like it and I seem to get more puffed, which, after all the walking I did in Europe surprises me because you would think that a strengthening exercise. It annoys the hell out of me because I used to love my walks.
The Brook actually has flowing water in it once again. What is really nice , is that it has been made into a multi use reserve to preserve its aboriginal and natural elements. Lots of trees and shrubs were planted and I guessed it was around 20 000. Not a bad guess, I asked the leading hand there last week, yes, 22 435. That is a wonderful effort and even if only half of them were to survive, that is still great. Let's hope more make it into adulthood.
