Hi CMF, Monkey and All,
Hope your weekend is cruising along okay.
I've not had much energy today...maybe I will find some tomorrow!
I watched a movie on Netflix today about elephants in Africa and a human romance. Filled in some time!
Cheers to you all from Dools
cmf I have cold drinks on hot days and hot drinks on cold days.
mrs doors I have not had much energy for years and keep hoping.
i am on a bean bag sipping in a home made lemonade just watching an old spender Tracy and Katherine Hepburn movie Desk Set .
I've not relaxed in a bean bag for decades! Mum bought me a bright purple vinyl one when I was a kid. I didn't even like purple, my sister did. We used to take the bean bags outside and hang out in them with our friends.
Sounds like you were watching an older movie. I don't recall that title. Katherine Hepburn was a lovely actress.
Maybe we could share favourite movies here. No doubt we actually have a thread for that already, but sharing here could be fun.
I'm not actually sure if I have a favourite, think it changes with my moods!
Cheers from Dools

It is a nice cool morning here where we live, the birds are singing and I am going to push myself out the door later for a walk.
This morning I am attending a Thank You morning tea for one of the volunteer places I attend. The lovely people hosting it always make sure they have something there that is gluten free for me!
Hope you all have a good day.
you are a serious legend for doing all the volunteer work you do. I dont know how you do it (time wise)
Cool here too...birds are singing....and some baby Magpies out the front too!....Beautiful :-)
Hope you have a good day too Dools
Hi Paul and Everyone,
Thanks for your comments. Volunteer work over the years has provided many amazing opportunities and experiences.
A couple of the more interesting rolls have been helping with Riding for the Disabled and my time with the local Country Fire Service.
I enjoy my time at the home for the elderly, at the Op Shop and here on the forum as well. These roles all helop me feel better about life and myself!
Hope you are doing okay Paul.
Did someone say birds? Animals? Food? Birds are my animals. I am particularly fond corvids and cockatoos/parrots.
I voted in the bird thingy - for the Australian raven. Sadly I could only vote once :(
Dropping in to say hi. Been a while.
i am starving! I need a coffee and a sandwich before the gym.............. **tummy rumbles**
Omg, how are you? What's news? What been happening? Oh, I've missed you :-)
Ello country music festival:D

Im regretting the pre gym sandwich...
HAHAH yep. And yep....

I was off for a while and since I've been back i haven't seen him. I hope he is ok.
Hey hey V......really great to see you again :-) Kanga hasnt been around for a while....He never mentioned anything
Hey Country Music Festival :-) Always a bonus to have you on the forums!
I have left fresh coffee on if anyone wants a cuppa :-)
Hey CMF.......thankyou for letting us know about the wildfires in QLD and NSW......Living in Melbourne I was tuned in to 3AW after 3pm and being a Melbourne based drive program they didnt mention how bad it really is
CMF mentioned "Hope anyone here who lives in those areas is safe"
If anyone in NSW or QLD can let us know any info, please do
Hi All, I don't live in NSW or Qld so I can't help you, I'm sorry.
Heaters on one day, then air conditioners on the next, that's Melbourne weather.
Hi CMF, I am ok, struggling with a couple things at the moment money wise. Not sure what we are going to do, it’s stressful. I posted about it on my thread.
I’m grateful I have a house and a safe community away from fires though.
Understand how you feel Everything seems to come at once. I find htat when faced with these dilemmas we manage to find a way, cos we have to.
CMF mentioned the wildfires in NSW and QLD
Sending our prayers and heartfelt thoughts to anyone effected
The gentle people on the forums are here for you
Thanks CMF for raising this
Hi All, my deepest and heartfelt condolences to all of you who have been affected and decimated in these terrible bushfires in NSW and QLD.
I also want to thank all the Fire Briquette men who risk their lives and to those wonderful people who help out supplying refreshments to them.
Situations like this are not what we would ever hope for.
My sincere apologies to everyone who are involved.
Please take care.
Echoing the sentiments about the fires. Hopes and prayers for all involved. I have seen a few photos. Looks scary. :(
My friends husband is over there helping from over here in the West. He is a high ranking fireman.
He is very cool. He has been saving wildlife as well.
