Ok, that’s the second run to Adelaide over now we just have the five day trip to Melbourne and back. I am so looking forward to the Tattoo. In nearly 65 years the Edinburgh Military Tattoo has only moved out of Edinburgh four times and three of these time have been to Australia. I have never been to the Australian event – this will be a first time. We are, as I said earlier, going via the
Great Ocean road. Our first run on Friday will be from here to Mount Gambier. The boys will do in one run what I generally take two to do – overall about 1000klms. But then as Herself suggests, there is nearly 30 years of a difference :o)
At the moment Windows 10 is still causing me heartache. I spent some time with a Microsoft Guru who was very helpful and finally got Word, Outlook, Excel, Power Point and Publisher all working – fantastic. Still have problems in that the start/menu button is still not working on windows 10 and I cannot access the apps – which means that although these programs are working I can’t quite get to them because I can’t get into the applications folder – grrrr… Not only that, my computer refuses to recognise my printer – they wont talk to each other. I am not altogether sure why but I seem to spend a lot of time these days humming Trini Lopez (If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning) It is definitely a true saying “To err is human – but to really stuff up you need a computer”
Benji got a severe talking to the other day as I tried very nicely to impress on him that wakening up and pouncing on a sleeping form at 04:20 does not a happy daddy make. :o) Must have worked
because the last two mornings I have slept until 6am – thank you BJ. This five days away to Melbourne is going to be fun. The poor dog went gaga when I came home from Adelaide and that was only overnight — how is he going to be after five days? This will be the longest time I have been away from him since he was rescued and brought home. The longest I have been away from him was two days and Herself tells me he just sulked in his bed only coming out to go out and to eat. Yes, of course I will miss him.
I am looking forward to the Tattoo and some shopping afterwards. We set back to home on Monday – overnight in Adelaide and home sometime on Tuesday morning. Herself has also been having problems with her computer but rather than upgrade ( it is an old computer) so when we get to Adelaide we are going to have a look around and see what we can find.
Anyway we leave in two hours so I had better start getting showered and things ready. I am taking the camera (of course) and the laptop with me and we’ll see how we go.

How did you get Benji to listen to you?! I need this trick when Cricket stands on my chest and cries at me when it is freezing cold outside.
I think because we had a visitor staying with us overnight and he was wanting to remind me who was top dog. He went back to normal after the other dog left, so I don’t suppose I really did anything. As for freezing – yesterday it was chucking it down and he still wanted to go out —- not that I did. I’m not quite that silly.

Sorry you’re having technology issues. I loved the updated adage ‘to err is human…’ So perfect, so very true. Our pups can get into a off kilter rhythm that totally flummoxes me-must be bio-rhythms or sunspots or some other inexplicable phenom. Hope you enjoy the outing and have a blast!
Thank you – we did have a blast and the Tattoo was fantastic – not the same kind of atmosphere that I remember from Edinburgh itself – but really good none the less. However the Military Tattoo was really only one part – certainly the major part – of the five day trip. Needs to sit down for a while.
