What else could I use after a day at Australia Zoo
Under the ever present influence of Steve Irwin this cartoon was a natural choice.
Let’s see, what has been happening since I last did a “normal” post?
Well a pleasant week has passed with my daughter in law Carolyn and two grandsons Jordan and Paul aka Fashion-boy and Sport-boy if you are a reader of HoltPress.
I went down to Brisbane the day before they arrived and stopped overnight with Wazza, this was because they were due to fly in on the red-eye at 5.40am, in fact the flight was delayed at Perth for an hour and arrived at Brisbane at 6.40am (I could have really done with that extra hours sleep!!)
The first three days when we got back to Gympie were wet (and it never bloody well rains in Gympie!!) so it was a little like having a pair of caged Tigers roaming the house, they are 15 and 10 years old…. say no more!!!!
We survived this wet spell without bloodshed and once they were able to venture outside things picked up a lot.
Yesterday Marcus was due to arrive at 9pm at Brisbane so we got off to an early start (9am is considered early by modern youth) and spent a very enjoyable day at Australia Zoo (of Steve Irwin fame) there was a nostalgic tang to this visit as it was only a week after the anniversary of Steve’s death.
I am pleased to report that Australia Zoo still presents its patrons with a great chance to enjoy time with caring and expert members of a dedicated team who have the dual purpose in life to ensure you enjoy your visit and even more importantly to provide care for the animals housed at the zoo.
After a great day there we dropped Margaret’s repaired computer off to her at nearby Caloundra, she now has to have it configured for a new ISP and hopefully all her troubles will be over.
Marcus arrived only a few minutes late and we set sail for Gympie where we arrived all a bit subdued from the days activities about .Marcus, Carolyn and the boys have spent most of today together, giving Grandpa a bit of time to catch up on blogging, still behind but not as far behind as I was.
