It is well known within the family that I very much like cheese cake!!!!!!!
My punishment for not attending Vicki's 50th it seems is to be tortured with provocative photos of all the cheese cake I am missing out on.... I can assure my tormentors that I am well aware of the consequences of my decision not to attend the function being held at the Foster ranch at Wudinna.
While it is always disappointing to miss out on a feast of cheese cake it is much more so to miss the chance to see the family members who will be in attendance, as well as my favourite daughter I am saddened to miss seeing Alan, my oldest son, (he who sits grinning as he contemplates eating my share of said cheese cakes) Alan recently had a very bad fall which resulted in a fractured skull and a week in hospital, so it would have been nice to see him and his lovely wife Lyn, alias "the ferret" (a long story!!).
I'm guessing that the shadow of the photographers head which is in the photo belongs to one who desires to be known as my favourite son-in-law, he has on occasion gained this status but I should hasten to warn him
that tormenting me with photos of cheese cake I'm not going to have a share of is not the best way of getting to be FSIL!!!!

The gathering is being held as a "thankyou" to all the kind folk who have been so supportive of Vicki over the last 12 months when her health has been a very real worry at times, and also of Rex during his recent bout with prostate cancer, they are both enjoying very good health at the moment and we pray that this continues.
If you are a regular reader here you will already know of the troubles that have befallen them over the last year or so, and for those who do know the story, you have most probably offered some kind words or prayers for them during this time...
please join us in a "virtual party" to celebrate Vicki's birthday and their good health, thank you one and all!!!
it doesn't hurt that at this stage of the year they are looking forward to what has been a very elusive thing over the past decade... A GOOD YEARS HARVEST... too early to start cheering yet but the signs are good.
My favourite Daughter’s turning 50.
My little girl is turning 50
Don’t ask how this can be
Its seems such a short time
Since she bounced upon my knee.
Gone are the stages of her life
The joy, tears, and traumas of her youth
She is now a woman, mother, and a wife
May she get some peace now in her life.
She’s been a friend to many
One of the very best
You’ll never find her lacking
When she’s put to life’s test.
So to all who have gathered round her
To help celebrate this night
Make sure you have a good time
And make her night just right.
From a loving Dad.
