Hi Kate, I was just posting a message on Kathy/Valrico's page and saw one from you to her. I also trained as a nurse! So there's another similarity. I trained in Melbourne, finishing in 1967!!!

Hi Kate, We are at the airport now. Guess what I have a new Granddaughter. Today in the morning after we left Dubbo. I don't know any details yet but isn't that exciting!

Hi Kate, Sorry, I've been overfeeding your fish. Very cute. Hope they don't tip sideways and die. Love your photos

You're more than welcome for the Ansel Adams link (started to abbreviate, then thought better of it!). And lovely to meet you as well.

Hi Kate: your right I don't comment very much, but
yesterday you had a small ammusing typo. I sure wish
it was only 23 Hr's to the next season as it's been
a cooooold snowy Winter around here and little
improvment in sight.

Love your fish bowl Kate, I fed them plenty.

My Girlie-girl loves any thing that goes Vroom. Lucky for us we live next door to some wonderful nieghbors that have a Harley Davidson Ralley each year and have lots of Vroom Vrooms to keep her happy. The girl may not know her ABC's or 123's But More...

Hi Kate, I have not been able to go on the internet until tonight so have not replied to any of the notes you copied onto my page. Thank you for doing that. The keyboard that I am using is a German one so some letters are in a different place. We are having a good holiday but it is very cold. It has snowed several days. Bye for now will try and send you another note soon.

Well Kate sometimes I wonder why people want to come and live in Canada. I was born and raised here, I am use to winter, but this has to be the worst one I ever saw. I do not remember that much snow in such a short while. We have had snow since november 15 and it doesn't seem to end. Mind you we More...

I been feeding your fish - what fun and your roses are wonderful. Thanks for the information. I do find a green icon off to the right - says: public viewing. I'll have to come back later to play around with it. The sky is really a different color today - just looks nasty this morning, hope you sky is blue, thanks again so much. Mary

your fish are sleeping tonight. I tried to put the fish on my horse site board, but it didn't take. Thank you so much for your help, I went and started all over again, didn't work, I do know the picture was large, so I just changed it to medium but still not coming too. I'll ask my sister to email me a picture and see how I do with that. thanks again. mary

Hi Kate: Thanks for the welcome and the beautiful flowers. Your flowers make my place look lovely and the ones you put on the jigsaws are truly wonderful as well. Come and visit anytime. Cheryl

Kate, I don't think I have ever visited your page, either! I would have remembered all of the lovely flowers! The golden rose is stunning!
Oh! I fed your fish. (Actually, I fed them quite a bit, so they won't need feeding for a while!)

Hello Kate - a very belated visit to your page and even later thank you for my very loooong ago birthday wishes and also for your lovely comments about my sunrise photo.
I haven't submitted any new photos to the site for ages as the last two batches never seemed to show up. When I have more More...

Hi Kate, we are in Budapest. I have the internet again. It is Saturday, 1.15 pm and it is a public holiday here, so no shops are open. I am going to try and download some photos but the MacBook is different so it may not work.

HI Kate

Thanks for dropping in. The photo you asked about is my son and my grandmother (his great-grandie). My son is about to turn 10 (on Good Friday) and my grandmother turned 95 last December, although this piccy was taken about 12 mths ago. I don't know how I'm going to deal with More...

Col, that's a wonderful relationship for you mother & son. I know how you feel about how he'll cope with her death and that it'll be hard for you also. It sounds like she is very well at the moment & I guess you'll all have to enjoy as many days as you can get, not necessarily physically, with her.

Hi Kate, we are in Milton Keynes with Jenni now but we both have very bad colds. Ian went to the Doctor's today and got some Amoxicillin Capsules and decongestant tablets. I got some cold & flu 24 Hour Capsules from Boots. So hopefully we will both stop coughing. We all go up north on Friday.

Kate, ain't it the truth?!?!? I've found myself going somewhere and once there I have forgotten why I went there in the first place!
I loved your fish that I went to the widget sight to see if I could get something similar. Tried for the penguins but couldn't.

Hi Kate, how is everyone?

Hi Kate, I fed the fish while I was listening to Peter, Paul and Mary, so they will be alright while you are in Bar Point. I hope the cleaning of the dam goes well and you get lots of helpers.

Hi Kate: I continue to admire the beautiful Australian flowers, most differ from ours. Spring has arrived, however, we still have about a foot of snow on the flat - a longer than usual winter. I dropped by to wish you and your family a Happy Easter, along with a great Spring. Cheers.

Kate: Is that a Real dragon?... as opposed to a lizard?... Whew... how big will he get?... Handsome fella isn't he!!! Your You-Tube is so appropriate... love it...

Kate - the photos were taken from my front balcony. The roof(s) are my neighbours. The panoramic picture was photo-stiched from about 7 shots and takes in about 180 degrees.

Hey Kate. I hope you take a PP&M CD with you as well. Enjoyed hearing Puff again. Have a safe trip to the wedding and enjoy yourself!

Thanks for visiting with my Honey Bunny and the grandkids, Kate! No, I didn't create the costume. We seem to have had it nearly forever, and I have no idea where it came from!

Kate, I think there might be a touch more in it. I hope you enjoyed it.
