I needed to get out today. About lunch-time it just hit me like -as they say--a smackeroo-blurby. So as B was out getting someone's house ready, I took Peter's van - and as Wednesday was looking at me with reproachful eyes, and I was having 'I should have taken Roly out more ' guilt, I took both of them up to Peter's place (I felt I was over-using a friend's goodwill, and I reckon I owe him some oysters in thanks) rather than the beach as I didn't want them wet and in his vehicle. They ran (Puggle on a lead to try and stop him overdoing it, poor boy) around the lower paddock there, and Wednesday found an electric fence. I have this thing about them only leaving here to go walking in a veheicle so breakout is less tempting, I hope. Anyway, I was out for half an hour and it did lift the spirts a bit and tire out the black menace. She's really missing her playmate. I'm finding it very quiet with B away such a lot. I'm solitary, but there are degrees of solitude. I cut up our stack of wood, and did some minor woodwork before getting back to work, feeling a bit better. They say snow is forecast for Hobart area so maybe it is the weather change. Winter is on its way.
Pads and I were talking on skype - he's been to the Botany Dept and seen my old Oxalis project still on a shelf... Rhodes. Like here it's a bit of a time-warp.
