Wow those are so good I can't pick which one is bestCDR Virtual Vacations presents On this day 2020: A day in 3 parts...
Sydney’s public transport system includes the ferries, so we took one from Circular Quay to Double Tree Bay in the morning. We had a good view of the city and Luna Park the vintage theme park. When JoesDad worked in Sydney his apartment was just behind Luna Park.

Then we did a long walk to Centennial Park amd a spot of bird and bat watching. There are tens of thousands of Flying Fox fruit bats roosting in the trees and they’re very noisy!

The first bird we saw was, appropriately, a Laughing Kookaburra.

Well yes, I think he looks like a hard working and dashing guy... Is he the one that got married lately. Is so, my best to them.
Maybe you will do a rolling pin next!For those who guessed, many were close. Yes, a hanger, but a tool hanger for in the wood shop. Yes, i could have just banged a few nails or screws into the wall, but what fun or look is that, especially in a wood working shop?
So.......as a reminder, a look back on the creation of a customized tool hanger.

Good morning, all.
It's still quite chilly here but bright and sunny.
Have to make the most of it - rain is on the horizon for the rest of the week.
Lola is waiting for his breakfast so I'd better go and see to his lordship.
Hope everyone has a good day.
They're all great but I especially love the sleeping koala slouching in his seat.CDR Virtual Vacations presents On this day 2020: We did a day trip to Taronga Zoo. Lots of really good displays of native species

As interesting as what’s on display is the native wildlife that is roaming free at Taronga. Water Dragons are everywhere just basking on paths, rocks or swimming in any available water.

Brush turkeys are everywhere too.

Good morning right back at ya!
I just wanted to chime in and say...
Yesterday I knocked on my torts’ door and said “House keeping!”
( I even smiled as I said it..)
.....rushed her out of her night box and proceeded to clean it.
When the night time fell upon us
I rushed her back to her night box forgetting to feed her.!
At midnight I remembered and ran out to her... only to knock at the door whispering,
“Room service?” ...
Since when did Covid change my job to
My torts maid????? Or lackie??
I feel like the kings peasant who has to try the food first to see if it’s been poisoned !!
— God I miss my boss. At least I can tell him where to go if he asks for a coffee!
Thank you Lyn. Yes, Annette is the lady who died suddenly. It was nice to see her againThey're all great but I especially love the sleeping koala slouching in his seat.
Congratulations on an excellent tv appearance Linda, you looked and sounded very professional.
Is Annette the lady who died suddenly last year?
