Apparently its raining in Albury - wonder if Hz is running around her backyard nekked! lol Tony you must get great service from Optus we are with foxtel and had to install our own digi box, came with the instructions 'ring us if you get into difficulties'. Afraid Telstra aren't any better with their phone coverage either. Whats Barb using for her competitions with her phone being awol? Have you hidden your phone yet - pmsl. Could we have a video of the MM too please - just to refresh the memory and have another momento. Do you want us to collect it? How much is going on the cutting room floor -lol. Well I'm outta here, catch tomorrow xxx jude diy

Arvo Wattlers We are home safe and sound. So glad everyone else has arrived home safely as well. Many thanks to our lovely HRH Lew for opening up her beautiful royal residence for the festivities. As you have heard a very picturesque setting, the view is spectacular and the stars/milky way were so bright from the first class spot of laying on the grass (sorry you just had to be there!) It was suggested the the princeth and her royal consort Terry might consider building a wattler retirement village on one of the corners of the property - ever seen an ice princeth blanch - she lived up to her title - hehehehe. The weekend ran like clockwork, thanks also for all the organising Lew and the scrumdiddlyumptious repast. A big thanks to the other wonderful wattlers who made for a marvellous weekend. Don't know about the video of the event though - been racking the brain to see if I could 'remember' misbehaving. I don't think I have laughed so much since the last wattle meet. I was granted a royal audience and got to curtesy to our queen Trifley and the Royal consort Graham. You are such a great bunch of peeps. Thanks also to our 'neighbours' Laurie and TLR, Fluffy and Anna,Sandra, Lyn, Shazz, Lara and O.H's. We left Mudgee shortly after Tony and Barb as we passed them on the road out of town ( I waved as Ken drove past) did ya see us? lol. We took a short detour to Sofala (quaint) - although the cottage wouldn't have looked out of place!. Passed Tony and Barb in the next town, saw you busy with the camera. Reached Canberra at 12.30pm and found us an eatery for lunch (mind you I didn't have any meat,or chicken and made sure I washed all traces of food away!). I navigated Ken into Canberra (thankfully Vonny and John had lent us a street directory) but we still managed to get lost - the inevitable road works/detour did us in.(nothing new for us in Canberra we always get lost.) Found ourselves near the Captain Cook fountain, after a few frantic minutes of searching we took off again towards Capitol hill and I spotted a route 2 sign and we were back on track. Arrived at the zoo with 20 mins to spare (panic over!). We signed the release forms saying we realised we could be chased,caught,tormented,slashed and nibbled on by the cheetahs -lol, and made our way to the meeting point. We spent 10 mins just observing the cheetahs before meeting them 'face to face'. It was a bit disconcerting to see the male Roby just pacing up and down the perimeter fence. The keeper arrived and gave us our instructions and we entered the cheetahs domain. Being very co-operative they were at the fur -therest point from the exit gate! We were just so mesmerised at the time, it was only after the 15 mins were over, that you realise on the walk out how far you had to go if the keeper said run. What totally beautiful cats, just like a bigger version (much bigger) of Cleo, smoochy and they melt as you rub their heads. Mind you after having my hand licked by them I can see why bones are left clean ! The male Roby was very unsociable, he continued his pacing, but we totally fell in love with the two girls. I do prefer Cleo to sit on my knee though she only weighs 4 kg - a bit easier to manage. Have no idea as to whether the photos are any good, the keeper took 21 photos and used up all my film (BTW still haven't found the digital camera charger). Vonny our thanks to you and John again for your hospitality, especially as you are on countdown to the big trip. The four of us just talked and talked - as you do when you are a wattler - isn't that one of the criteria? We met Vonnys lovely daughter and grandchildren, and daughter in law, and we got to see 'the boat' in all its glory. Vonny and I left the two OH's happily chatting about guy/boat stuff for an hour or so before dinner. A great finish to a fabulous weekend. Had a very hot trip back home, but I did talk Ken into detouring to Alexandra to water the garden. Plumber still hasn't finished so 'not happy!'. Looks like a shower with a watering can, and bucketing the loo next weekend. His phone is 'out of range/switched off' he better hope it stays that way. Grrrrrrrr. It was lovely to be greeted by our lovely Cleo, Ken put on his t-shirt he had worn to meet the cheetahs but she didn't re-act in any way - so his little experiment backfired. She was soooo glad to have us home, and she is a lot easier to smooch! Jude -Flakey made a dressing with the 'good olive oil' from Mudgee last night - works a treat - yummy! Thank you Tony again for the C.D's mind you a few secrets got let out on the weekend and I don't think I'm going to be 'allowed to play' on the computer as much as I have been - drat it! So it could be a while before they are put to use - pmsl. Well must away and do some work - 'or we won't get home tonight'! lol ~~~~ hello to everyone who did and didn't go to MM xxx jude

You are soooo caring Tony, offering to have a whiskey to take the pain away from Dreekies missing molar!!! .. lol What is wrong with Ray, Laurie? I thought he seemed quiet over the weekend. .. Has he got an aching molar too :) Hooray, at last I am home for the rest of the week, and truly, I don't know where to start first. .. Have soooo many options. .. One is a Nanna nap, and that's looking good. Mary my commiserations. My techy once clicked on 'compact' - I could have killed him, he stopped it, and that made things worse. A system restore would not have helped, the emails are probably still there, compacted - somewhere - but you would need step by step instructions I think. I could give you the addresses of some good techy forums who may be able to help you. (pm me) Love to all (Gwenda - I was there early this morning, but didn't get around to waffling) Jood

Calling it quits for the day, as we have the Optus bloke coming out to take a look at the Tele and new wizz bang digi box they installed last week. Rang them yesterday and told them that I'm not happy with the way they installed it, as i cant tape the tele from the DVD unit. We have the Dolby surround sound theatre system, and they have mucked the bloody thing up installing from the old Optus/Foxtel box to the new wizz bang Digital. They dont mind taking ya money, and jump up and down if you dont pay on time. So they can come and fix it, and put it back the way it was. Sue ( tassie ) . They dont sell many V.B tablets in N.S.W ( disgusting )...hee hee Only a few tins in the Pub fridge that i grabbed, so bought a Boags at Deebs kitchen, after i was corrected by a few Wattlers who heard me ask for Cascade......Sorry i forgot was wrong of me....and i hope i am forgiven for ordering darn sarf Tassie beer. I have a pickle to prove i did drink Boags in your honor. Cheers Have about 10 orders for the Mudgee meet DVD, so bare with me, and i will send peeps a copy shortly. Hope everyones having a great day or night. Dreekie. Sympathy coming your way mate ( molar out ) Gotta look after us blokes, as they tend to forget us sometimes. I will pour a glass of whisky for you later, and drink it so you wont feel the pain after the anasthectic wears off. Sorry...buts that the best i can offer from down Best wishes to all the sickies.

Morning All, Thanks for all the pickles, there are still one or two that I cannot place especially among the OH's. I think that some may have bounced back because my mail box was full with all the large photos. I will empty it and then you can try again Hope every thing goes well for you today merle. And yes thanks I am doing much better, mostly because of all the good advice that I have received from all my Wattler friends. I came to the realisation the other day that I am actually afraid of my father. It goes way back. He never actually smacked us but he has a very cruel way with words. I can remember one occasion especially, when I was about 15 and I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me. During his tirades, he brings back every thing that you have ever done wrong, and his face takes on the most awful devilish appearance. And they say words can never hurt you. Don't believe it. I think that I will be able to over come my fears now. Thanks heaps to those who have helped me. I am waiting for a real estate agent to arrive, just hoping that she is better than the last lot. It has taken them a week to get back to us. Guess who we won't be using. Wattie is really well travelled now. Does he really have a passport and if so does it have any stamps in it? Lew, love the bling. Yes Yvette I sent it to all the wattlers. Well, looks like she has arrived, I will look back later Luv SuzyQ
