Dogs, Heaven and the RFDS Jet

… then I’ll hike it through Glen Falloch where the mountain breezes blow And I’ll draw up in the evening  in the Valley of Glen Coe. Of course, in my idea of heaven the road wouldn’t be there and all the dogs I have had throughout my life would be with me.  There  would be […]

The May Travels

Sunday: Annabell is much better today. The antibiotic kicked in and she is a lot better than she was last night. She has to take the second antibiotic this evening and we will go see the doctor tomorrow. I am feeling much more relaxed than I was  yesterday. When we returned from the hospital I […]

Adelaide, Kangaroos and walkin’ the dog!
