and seeing I have found a spare 5 minutes before I leave for
Brisbane (180 km away) to pick up my favourite Daughter
and Son in-law from the airport, I thought I would put up
a quick post and to stay with the computer image for a
while longer, what better subject?
Some of you may recall that this weekend is when the
Gympie Muster is on, and that Vicki and Rex are coming
