Mr Blizzard

Mr Blizzard kindly displays the local art society's latest works in his shop window.
Mr Blizzard is the local optometrist - he's pretty old (80 something) but still practising. He seems like a very nice man.
Beautiful autumn weather lately (but FREEZING mornings!).

Stick With Me, Baby...

....and we'll hit the dizzying heights!
From kangaroo poo to bin night!
It doesn't get much more exhilarating than this!
You wish you were me, dontcha?

Australia: Up-close and Personal

More specifically - kangaroo poo.
A big kangaroo.
A special treat for my Mother for Mother's Day.
(that's her foot, presenting said poo).
We've got lots of kangaroos around here - one day, I might get around to posting a photo of an ACTUAL kangaroo.

Sold For Seven Dollars!

I went to an auctiony thing today at the local Uniting Church.
I saw this pot plant stand I really liked and I won the hot, hot bidding.
But I got all this other stuff as well - a grease gun, a grinding wheel, a christmas tree stand, some bbq tools, a tv cabinet, a table frame with wheels, some old anodized cups, a drawer(!?!) and one of those whirlpool brush wash the car things - I think that's everything - all for $7.
I got lots of fabulous treasures inside the church hall at the stalls, too!

Theme Day - Numbers

Do people do this in other countries?
Rather than traveling down miles and miles of country roads, the post office delivers to groups of mailboxes at allocated points.
They have an mailbox number beginning with RMB... (Roadside Mailbox).

See all 181 City Daily Photo bloggers, Theme Day photos.
