Hi Kate, did you meet the other Kate (M) and June yesterday? I have a cold. It was bad yesterday and so I stayed home (didn't mind Payton as well. Today I will stay home again. Dad had some sort of pathology test yesterday and goes back today for more but he is OK.

Hi Kate,
Thank you ever so much for your birthday wishes and the chocolate cake - it was delicious. You also managed to pick some of my favourite flowers. My only complaint is that your blackberrys looked green - or were they Lantana berrys?
Many thanks for thinking of me.

Hi Kate, thank you for your birthday greetings for Michael; I have passed them on.

As soon as I looked at your photo I was sure it was a callistemon. They are such distinctive flowers. I agree with you that there is a melaleuca that is very similar and if I think about it, it probably More...

Hi Kate! Thanks for helping me figure out the Flickr pics. Now I finally realize that whatever photo I display on my page comes out of the "photostream" so that the smaller ones to the right are the one before that pic & the one after! Duh, you'd think I could have figured that out More...

Hi Kate! I'm still here in North Carolina but I am packing everything into my two suitcases. I would progress a little faster if my grandson wouldn't take things out of the suitcase. And also I am going to use that chihuahua as a football if he doesn't stay out of the suitcase! I got my last More...

Hi Kate, for your prayers. Unfortunately this thing about getting older is unavoidable . It is a terminal illness that starts from the day we were conceived The only solution is to enjoy what we have!

Kate, which is the photo that schmapps has included in it's Tassie entries? As I said my hubby is very pleased but we only went to Captain Cook's cottage because I could remember visiting it when we lived in Melbourne when I was 5. Funny how things turn out isn't it?

Kate -- thank you so much for your good wishes for my husband and me on our anniversary. We're looking forward to many more years!!

I really don't have too many choices. I can either cry and feel sorry for myself, or I can enjoy what I have. There are a LOT of people a whole lot worse off than I am.
You can't take life too seriously. It's too short for that.

Hello Kate, thanks for the birthday wishes and the pressie of a new page! Just now looking back at what is here - connection to the RAAF was through my mum's cousin and has, through here, brought contact with Ian and some fantastic help with photography. Your photos are sensational - I pop in and have a look and should have commented before this. Cheers, ELiz T

Whoa, Kate, for the birthday flowers, cake and wishes. Chocolate covered chocolate is always my choice of cake -- or anything else, come to think of it. So sweet of you to write. I appreciate your friendship and the way you always treat everybody kindly. I had another birthday lunch today, so you were still on time. Thanks, again@

Whoa Kate, you've got pages and pages to go!
Thank you for visiting! As you can see we had a lot of fun!
Plan to do it again next year! He'd be even more gabby! WooHoo!

Kate I am having the biggest giggle about your comment on the medium page today.

Hi Kate. How has life been treating you? I see you have been busy with the camera. Nice shots. I haven't touched the camera since we got back from Phuket. I haven't even added the pics from the holiday to flickr... but then again I haven't been near flickr since about Christmas.

You take some great shots and I am glad that you are enjoying flickr. Keep up the good work.

Hey Kate, seems like your boy is in worse shape than me! Hope everything goes well for him. My recovery this time is amazing, think my specialist got it right. Love to all.

Hi Kate, I have been reading the book you lent me, "A Thousand Splendid Suns." It is a great book. I don't think I could complain about my life again!

Thank You Kate, for making my birthday special. With so many sudoku friends around the world it made the day truly wonderful.

Hi Kate! I've only been on the site hit or miss this past week, but think I saw something about your son having cellulitis in his leg?? Did I read that right? How's he doing? Hope some antibiotics cured him quickly. Looks like you've got a busy week coming up - enjoy!
25/Jul/08 7:46 AM
 |  |

Hi Kate. I'm like you, catching up on comments. I just read about your son having cellulitis. Please let me know how he's getting on. My brother-in-law also has it, as a result of exploratory knee surgery.

Hi Kate, thanks for making me your "friend". It is easy to get to your page now. How did you know about it?

Kate, your photos are lovely - particularly the close-ups of flowers. What kind of equipment do you use? Do you use a macro lens for close up work?
06/Aug/08 7:08 AM
 |  |

Hi Kate - Thanks for your kind comments about my photos. I've put several up for the medium puzzle, so they should come up sometime in the next few months/weeks. I hope your son's foot is doing better now. I love your flower photos! What a beautiful garden you must have!

Hi Kate, what are you doing here at this time? Isn't P home?

Hi, Kate! Thanks for the kind comments on my photos. I've never been much of a photographer and have a lot to learn, but I'm having a lot of fun with my new digital camera! Your photographs are magnificent! I hope that with practice, I will pick up a little of your expertise!!!

Kate, thanks for taking the time to answer my photo /lens question. I am learning to use a new camera, and am a bit overwhelmed; I got so busy working with aperture etc, that I completely forgot I have a macro setting! I'm going to give it a try. It sure would be less expensive than buying a new lens!

No problemo, Kate. I'm guilty of the same thing! I have an excuse I'm getting up there in years! Got to comment before I forget too!

Sure, Kate Help yourself to the Helmet. I never had a BSA. I do have an old Triumph Bonneville though...

Thanks Kate. I love the flower photos and the cake looks divine. I have just got home from having dinner out. I have had a really great day.
