Home at last

Using my very best “Arnie” impression;


The house is still standing, the lawn has been recently mown, all's well with the world.

My ultra reliable i30 was content to hide in the carport, I've made 17 trips up & down stairs and all the contents are now in the house... I did NOT say unpacked or put away!!!!!!!

Ha ha ha! You appear to have your movie quotes mixed up! Arnie simply said "I'll be back" (no stretching of vowels), the 'b-a-a-a-c-k' was said by Heather O'Rourke in Poltergiest.

And just to put things in perspective after your long stay with Vicki, Heather died of cardiac arrest at the age of 12.

Big Hugs, glad you made it all the way home safely! We had an even madder day today than when you were here! Hard to believe I know but today there were 15 kids hanging about as well as lots of adults, lol! Its nice and quiet now despite the fact we have two extra little boys tonight (they are being very quiet and lovely, maybe I will keep them, lol). All the grown ups and the rest went home and even my girls went out so the house is very very quiet! Ahhh silence is bliss!

Hi Peter ~~ Glad you are safely home
and the house is still there waiting for you. Obviously you weren't slowed
by any floods. All OK here, had Geoff and Jo's daughter on Saturday
with her latest boyfriend. They went and bought some lunch and we had it here/ Then Sunday Geoff arrived and doid a few jobs in the garden, then went to get some wood for their heater. Cheers, Merle.

What a nice home to greet you. Glad your trip was successful. I know the feeling of being away and coming back to your own very comfortable bed.

Welcome Back, and thanks for sharing.

I'm glad to see your house is still standing and hasn't floated away with all the rain we've had. How was traffic on the Bruce? Just as well you went home Sunday. Did you see the news last night with all the traffic...it was like a car park, especially heading south. Of course they didn't show the other side of Nambour going north.

Anyway, welcome home Peter and I hope you don't get footrot with all the rain.

Peter ~ Sounds like you may be singing another verse to Willie Nelson's "On The Road Again" real soon? ~ jb///

welcome home!
Did you say who mowed?

Cliff said...

There surely is no place like home. I'm glad you are back and safe. Now get it all put away and blog us.

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. I was watching this documentary last night about some young Aussie lady who took a trip to Bali and was caught with about ten pounds of marijuana. I think she's still in prison over in Indonesia. She said the marijuana must have been planted by airport baggage handlers. I'm going to be wary of traveling Qantas, I guess.

I hope you've got your stuff unpacked and put away by now!
Your house is pretty, and I love that palm tree. It looks warm there, and I am a big fan of warm weather.
We are in full spring weather, warm without the humidity. The heavy humidity is coming soon enough.
17 trips up and down the stairs, you say?
That's a good exercise program.
