Haloooooo ! Anybody home ???

It’s Good Friday. Parked down by the creek at Clunes where Rosie’s Grandfather was born… opposite the old Gold diggings that Rosie’s Great-Grandfather worked.. Chilling today ..tho I have been working on this WordPress site .. setting up a re-direct to my Facebook page for posts here and also Rosie has helped me (Saved my sanity) install “Google Analytics” to count visitors to the site .. (none !.. Flat-lining !) and the other day..the ability to comment was set up in a miraculous shared effort from Jen, Oskar (the Master Mind) and myself.. But Alas and Alack .. the only comments are from myself and one from Rosie .. !!>?! but I’m counting them anyway.We had coffee this morning in “Widow Twanky’s” , Clunes.. Where we were informed that that’s the name of Aladdin’s mother !!… and a popular tea!.. (like Twinings) in the eighteen hundreds… Whereupon I informed the owner of the FAAAARR more important connection ..,of the Blacksmiths Guild’s Journeymen’s song “Twanky Dillo” sung upon a saint’s day while drinking copiously and cavorting .. ( I have first hand experience of Blacksmiths cavorting ) ..  Anyhow !! …a comment please ….(kind if possible?) …and be assured that after today anybody looking at my site will become a treasured and valued.. Nay !.. CHERISHED! statistic.

    Bruce,
    I knew you was a major ‘cavorter’ whence first I set eyes upon you!

    I also remember ‘Widow Twanky’ of ‘Aladdin’ fame, being a pantomimer from way back
    in the old days in the old dart, as a child, when we used to get taken to pantomimes and anxiously await the moment when they would ask for children to go up onto the stage.
    “Behind you! Behind you!”

    I find your posts extremely invigorating, and as you know, I do own a cape pin, from way back, when you forged in Salamanca, before I had even met you in Byron Bay!

    ….now I am living in Coburg and drinking yummy Victorian water
    Keep on posting your stories and your art, in your inimitable style!…. fellow Aries, Jack
