Rhiannan had her Formal the other night. As you can see she was absolutely beautiful! It went very well and she had a couple of friends over after it finished. After the debacle of the school excursion, she was not keen to go to the after party.
Here she is in her dress, looking great.
She didn't have a partner but her friend Dimity dressed up and went along for the ride for a laugh!! When the car pulled up (Rhiannan has a friend who owns a BMW - he was good enough to take her to the formal), Dimity jumped out and opened the door and helped her out - just like a chaffeur!

Check out this photo. It was taken about Jan 07 when we sold the Corona after 21 years of faithfull service. We took a photo of all of us, including the dogs. I have touched up the photo, changing it to a duotone sepia and retained some of the original colour. It's a great photo!!
Check out more photos on my Flickr account - follow the link on the right!.

Yep its been a while since I tapped on the keyboard, been fairly busy!
Just waiting for a phone call from Rhiannan who is on the way back from a school excursion to Sydney. Rhiannan has finished school now and is very excited not to have to worry about all that stuff now! She did apply for a Traineeship with a local motel, but didnt get the job because she is too young (they require someone over 18 to serve alcohol etc). A little disappointing but she got a good wrap from the Motel in regards to her personal presentation and resume. Still, plenty of time to try for something else; she still has her Woolworths job.
Kasey turned 18 since I last blogged. She has been out quite a bit since (the novelty will eventually wear off I think). We're very proud of her; she doesn't make a drunken idiot of herself when out, rather she just takes is slowly and enjoys the time with her friends.
Lachlan has finished his TAFE Diploma. They had a big presentation night where they take all their works and present them to interested members of the public. Lachlan has some excellent work in his portfolio.
Rhiannan has brought a car!! She still doesnt have her learners licence (Jan 02 she'll probably try for it - her 16th birthday). Kim found a car on the net and it was such a good buy that we brought it for her and she will be paying us back. I'll have to post some photos of her with it when we get them.
Kim and I are well, doing the usual stuff and getting ready for Christmas. Our tree is up and decorated and looks great!
Well, Rhiannan has just phoned and the bus is coming into Wagga, so better get me shoes on and pick her up. She'll be tired, not much sleep on school trips and she has to be up early tomorrow for work!
I'll add more later and throw on a photo or 2.

Hope all family and friends are well and life is good!
Rhiannans hair presentation went well. I'll download some photos and post them asap.
We've got a flock of Cockatoos living in a huge gum near our place. Really raucous but funny to watch them fly around playing. Got this photo a cuppla days ago when they were in the trees right behind our back fence.
Speaking of photos - follow the link on the right to the 'Flickr' web site. I have more photos on there which you can download if you wish.
Did anyone catch Idol the other night, crappiest rock songs I have ever heard!
Lachlan spent most of the arvo wandering the streets of Wagga with his camera. He has to get
photos that match a particular theme for his TAFE Assignments. To check out some of the photos he has already taken go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/lachlanjordan and check them out. Lachlan has a great talent for the composing of his photos.

Well it's been a long week and I havent had an opportunity to update.
Been very busy work wise (training course in house) and as a result of that I am working Mon-Fri dayshift 8am - 4pm. Really enjoying the fact that I have no night shifts but really missing the days off in between. Weekends just arent long enough!
We've been busy sorting out the girls rooms. Both are re-organising stuff and the house is just littered with their stuff until we can get a chance to sort it. Anything they dont want will be put in the garage for a monster garage sale in a fortnights time.
Kasey brought herself a new bedroom setting and we picked it up the other day. All in flat boxes (yes thats right - guess who had to construct the lot!!) Took me all day on Fathers Day to finish it off! It does look good though.
Kim has been ok - although her back still plays up. She cant do too much walking as that puts a strain on her back and her leg aches. We brought ourselves a new bed the other day, its absolutely sssoooooo comfortable and it actually does help Kims back as it gives her back the support it needs.
Thats about it for now
Love to all

I am very happy with my camera which I have had for over 12 months now - it is a Panasonic Lumix 8Mp and up to 19 X Optical Zoom.
These 2 were my favs from this morning. The first (which is in 4 x 3 mode) because of the way the sunlight hits the landscape ('specially the power lines) and the second (in a widescreen 16 x 9 mode) because of the contrast of the sun on the light fog and the darkness of western side of Rocky Hill.
We went via Jerilderie, Deniliquin (what a nice looking place Deniliquin is!) and the down the Cobb Hwy to Moama. The weather was great. We came back via Shepparton (which is a considerably larger town than what I had imagined) and up the Hume Freeway.
Check out a cuppla pics we took .................
