I did not expect this thumbnail story of a roo and a zoo and a family walking off the land when I went looking for Whelan*

I used to have a pet kangaroo when I was a kid on the farm.

Me mum backed over it.

I bet she was hugely disappointed it was joey instead of you.

Dear Boynton - i'm not following that link in case it's a sad animal story.
I just came by because it's Virgo Time and I wanted to express the appropriate sentiments.

I am about to leave a 3-month house-sit on 10 acres in the Otways and every dusk the kangas come into the paddock.
They all sit up like meerkats if they notice me. and they are not grey - they have about 4 different colours. I'm going to miss them.

So, wishing you many happy returns of the day.

Kangaroo hops, FX?

It is a sad animal story within a sad human story, Ann.
There's a mob of 3 in paddocks opposite my parent's house. They seem quite settled and non-alarmed.

Thanks for the virgo wishes of the day, and to you too.
My birthday is next week, surrounded by family bithdays.

ah ... New Years Eve conceptions all!

I've read down from Oct 15th post, and have no clever remarks, only admiration for the Clapton exchanges above somewhere.

Patti Boyd has just published her 'more than we want to know' book on George and Eric.

Hi a o'dyne
It's a rather lite screen's worth of blogging at the moment.

I think I read an extract of Patti's book somewhere.
I finally bought Concert For George on special at JB - nice moment of Eric singing Something
