A Great Night Out

Just got back in from a great night out. Started with dinner at Thai Pot Hong Restaurant
The food was delicious and the service excellent, but the wine OMG!
It was Lillypilly Red Velvet a Rosé. This wine has to be tasted to be belived.
I have become a rosé fan again after not drinking wine for many years, and have tried a few nice ones lately this is the absolute best ever!

Then went off to see the stage play of my all time favorite movie - Steele Magnolias
an absolute delight.
Jackie Weaver was great as Truvy and Geraldine Turner played Ouiser, who has my all time favorite line from a movie,
" I'm not crazy M'Lynn, I've just been in a very bad mood for the last 40 years!"

The other great line comes from Clairee, played beautifully by Jennifer Hagan,
"If you can't say anything nice about anyone, come sit by me."

The entire cast are brilliant. Annelle is played by Ana Maria Belo; Shelby is played by Marian Frizelle, and M'Lynn is played by Debra Lawren…

Unforgettable Lady

It is with much sadness that I make this posting, My sister passed away on Friday 1st May, this is my tribute to her.Barbara Therese Snow was born 27th April, 1940.It was Mum and Dad's 5th Wedding Anniversary.Barb, as we all called her, was Peter and Vera's second daughter. With Aileen in place, as eldest,Carolyn and I just had to keep the alphabet going. Just in case you didn't realise we are A, B, C, and D. Barb liked to travel and in her younger years Queensland was the destination,it was where she met her late husband, Brian. They had two boys, Alan and Gary.Barb was widowed in the late 80's and continued working for many years.
A Telephonist/Receptionist for two high profile legal firms, she was held in very high regard all her working life.
She continued her travels taking the boys on a cruise, and joining friends for a trip to Canada and later to Japan.

Barb realised one of her dreams after retiring, when she moved to Diamond Beach. A Bottle Shop and a Butcher’s…

Name That Tune 2 Revealed!

G'Day Everybody,

Name that Tune 2 = "She's A Lady"; she's got a "Ticket to Ride" and she's got "Bette Davis Eyes".
The words to the last song go:- "Her hair is Harlowe gold
Her lips sweet surprise
Her hands are never cold
She's got Bette Davis eyes

So I got a pic of Jean Harlow, and
one of Bette Davis'eyes.Played in photoshop.
The result you can see.
The lips being a small rose therefore a "sweet suprise"!

I will continue to post here when I finish a page,
as I have officially resigned from the BJP2008\9,
but I will finish the project,
only not in the official time frame.

Thanks to everyone for your support over the last few months.

I'm still standing!

Been awhile since I last posted here, but have been dealing with some health issues that saw me suddenly in hospital for five days.
I'm fine, had a minor heart scare, I say minor as they couldn't find out what really caused the chest pain I experienced.
Did lots of tests but only could come up with that I have high cholesterol (I already knew that!) but it's not high enough to be on medication for!
I lost two weeks work which in this economic climate I didn't need.
I am now on a two week holiday, taking it easy catching up with friends and family.
I haven't beaded since January and here it is nearly March.
There is a Craft Fair next week, and I'm hoping to find the inspiration I need to get back into it.

Name That Tune 2

Here is Page Two of my BJP for 2008, there are three songs in this one, hope you have fun guessing.
