Haha Gaby-One....Good on you.!! I used to live in Auckland and had the birds ice-skating on the birdbath at times in winter. Weather patterns have changed, but not so much that Auckland is tropical all of a sudden.
Just keep cuddling up to Cookie Pooh to stay warm Squirter.

Went up to Cromwell Central Otago house sitting from Good Friday could have stayed longer but had to be back for the medal ceremony at the R.S.A. on the afternoon of 21st April .Left it till the last moment and just made it back by 10 minutes. A very good presentation well organised and a great afternoon tea put on by the R.S.A. ladies.Was to go back up Central but both Grandchildren were marching in the Anzac day parade through Mosgiel and as they were each proudly wearing their Grandads medals we had to be there, one in Guides the other in Kea's. Quite an emotional moment as they marched past us .
Well Central Otago is fantastic at this time of the year the poplars have really started changing colour the weather was perfect and the lake was like a glass mirror. What did we do ? As we did not have any accomodation to pay we did the wineries we went wine tasting and dining out our two favourite vineyards were "Northburn Station" and "Wooing Tree" vineyard. If you are ever up that way they are a must to visit. Only $5 for wine tasting and $25 each for a large platter of food. Well worth the money. We went out to Bannockburn one day and had a lovely lunch in a nice little cafe great staff and great surroundings. We went out to Tarras and had an afternoon visiting the" Shreik" Museum this is a great memorial to this sheep that will live in the memories of thousands opf South Islanders especially the children and especially the Tarras School children who wrote a book of their experiences with him. A great holiday only spoilt when we came home and found out that I had been suspended for 14 days but this is another story of which I will mention in a seperate thread when I have a few spare moment as life since we got back has been fairly hectic but it is about to shortly get back to normal.
Aaaaahhhh, Great to see you back Mr.Lange. You were missed by some of us. Good that you and Mrs.Lange had a great time. I bet you felt very proud of your granddaughters. Looking forward to reading more Take care.

Hi Mr Lange/Benny.Good to see you again.Our family is slowly coming together again.But where oh where is Old Jack.Like all Families,we argue, But we do TRY to be nice also.
Mona, Old Jack wrote on a thread only a few days ago....Can't recall exactly where, but he is in the picture again.
Awe Benny One of the things I miss the most from farming days is the colours and the smell of the poplars.
More especially as we had planted them all for 'themselves' as saplings and had to water the darned things with a 400 gallon tank on the Landrover all that first summer.
Anyone else watch Police Ten 7 tonight. At the very end a young fella had been locked up, cop was walking away. Had one of those Eureka moments and sure enough was ex-s.in.law. Had to txt him and give him a bit of stick. Must watch next week, he said he knew he was in for a bit of fun with the young guy.

Welcome back Benny! Call yourself what ever name you like but you'll still be Benny just like the lady down the road was introduced as Mrs **** and although she says it's Shirley it's still Mrs **** to me. Just a matter of respect you know.
Yes Aggie we did watch 10/7 last night. You know I often look at those drunken youths and think how glad I am that none of my children were stupid enough to get onto TV like that. You can almost hear them saying "Look at me Mum & Dad!! I'm an IDIOT!" Not that mine were angles or the best behaved on the planet but they never brought their names into disrepute.
Bloody Nora Aggie.
""Bet he has to do all the washing, cleaning, cooking etc before her""
And the jobs all done in 1/2 an hour too, unlike you sheilas that take all day fluffin' around doing sweet-bugger-all figuring out what excuse you can lay on the your poor over-worked hubby as to why the fly-blown brekkie dishes are still scattered all over the sink.
Wot do we pay ya's for.
Gotta goan vacuum the house, clean all the windows inside and out, clean all the fly shoite of the ceilings throughout, and by that time it'll be 12.0 and a cuppa. A mans work is never done.
