This little craft offers joy flights over Port of Melbourne and Port Phillip.
I've never felt adventurous (or wealthy) enough to try it.

Back to what was my local park. It does change every season.



The Everready seems a puzzle as they became Energizer in 1992 when bought by the American company. They did keep the name as you said as they sell them online looking quite different, but haven't seen them in shops as Energizer seem to have rebranded them all there. But they indeed are still very much available online, which makes me wonder why I haven't seen the brand in shops since Energizer took them over, but they are widely available otherwise. Has anyone seen them in a British shop as I certainly haven't?

I saw that as well when I did a search. They changed the name altogether for most places and changed the spelling where they kept it the same. That'll do a lot for product awareness... confused

Sweet Mollie! Love the pic. Love all of yours, too, szabs smile

Here's Precious, thinking about chasing Tigger off his own doorstep! She did it too, a moment or two later, cheeky kitten!

Today, I allowed aggressive thoughts to guide me....
"Hey, Old and Fragile - you're for the chop! You thin and puny ones - no-one wants you! You who are too left-leaning, I must exterminate. That goes for your extreme right chums too.
Scram, sucker!
And those who remain will now be drenched with foul smelling brew."




So once again my annual rose pruning is done.

This is the road leading to the bottom of the road where I lived for 28 years, and my current optician is just over the main road from here which was why I was there myself.

What a beautiful kitty!

From this morning's hike... This is the cornerstone of Shaw Butte Observatory, a Hohokam (Native American tribe) site from the 12th or 13th century. There are more petroglyphs on the stone in the right corner of the picture. It's a pretty interesting site -- found this on the Internet:

Ren is correct. In some parts it has become the generic word for batteries.
