Tuesday, 14 Jul 2009

Location: Longreach

MapWell we had a long trip today driving through quite bumpy roads.We saw just so many poor little kangaroos dead on the road .I find it so sad.We have been so keen to get to see Ron and Jan we have been going flat out.We will now stay in Longreach for a couple of days as there is quite a lot to see.We just pulled up and had a call from brother Geof hes going to come over and meet us in Brisbane with his new woman.That should be nice- - cant wait.I do love all my brothers.
There are quite few farms here in the middle of nowhere.I do not envy them at all. It gave us quite a buzz to follow in the footsteps of where Burke and Wills ventured all those years ago.There is a monument there on the highway for all to see.Bet they werent in a caravan complete with shower and loo !!!!
Had an email from jill today.I love her emails and bet she steps it out in the time it takes me to read it !!!!One day I'll learn to type well !!!
Dale chatted to Amanda about paying the bills that come in.Its handy having her to help us thats for sure.I do miss the kids- -- - - -thats the mother in me !!! I think shes happy running the house and is spoiling Kayla rotten.
Poor Carolyne was thinking how her 3 day weekend is now over at least Jaynes is approaching.Mine was to follow but I have a life of weekends at present and loving it !!!!Sorry shouldnt brag but I am enjoying the life of doing little.I havent even worn my watch for 3 weeks after all whats time to me ???? Better go and rustle up a meal of gourmet proportions!! Talk again after my day of looking and learning in Longreach.
