|Pretty, aye? It's got a verandah on every side.|
It has the best yard .... I just love it.
There's rabbits. Can you believe that. RABBITS!!!!!! AND just outside the back door! I'm in rabbit heaven!! I couldn't believe my luck when I first went to investigate the yard. They were running everwhere. I didn't know which one to chase first but chase I did. It's funny but they disappeared and I couldn't find them and now they won't come out to play ... but back to the crook bit.
|This is where the rabbits live. Can you see where they've been digging? I could sure smell 'em!|
|The proof they are here!|
There's lots of fruit trees in the back yard and I LOVE fruit. Don't now if it's a whippet thing or what but I REALLY love fruit. ALL fruit. The first fruit tree I found was a fig. OMD figs .... fair dinkum that would have to be one of my very favourite fruits.
There was heaps of half rotted figs on the ground. I devoured soooooooooo many!!! Then I found an apple tree. None on the ground but I didn't manage to grab myself one from a low branch and got into that as well. Next there were cherry tomatoes ... crikey .... it doesn't get much better than that, aye??
|What ... ME! What did I do?????|
I had the best time ... what with chasing rabbits and my fill of fruit. All was well till late in the arvo when my tummy started to rumble like you wouldn't believe and THEN .... OMD .... I needed "pwivacy pwease" real bad!!!!! Who knew fruit could do that to you? Why didn't someone warn me? Woe was me!!!!!! BUT .... here's the worst part ..... do you know what Mum and Dad did? No ... I didn't think so!!!! They laughed and said really loudly "I TOLD YOU SO"! Crikey ... where's the sympathy????? I'm always sympathetic when they are crook. You'd think I'd learn, aye but once I was feeling a bit better I got hold of a pomegranate (spelling??) but this time I took it to Mum to see if it was ok.
|Can you see the pomegranate's on the tree? Crikey Enid ... you would LOVE this place!!!!!!|
Now ... back to the nearly dead bit!! After all the fruit eating, 'pwivacy pwease' episode and rabbit chasing we went to have a nice lunch down town. Found a great little pub with an outside area where I could join Mum and Dad for lunch. All was going well. I was being a good bloke and behaving myself under the table and Mum and Dad were enjoying themselves immensely. Very quickly the sky turned black. Black as a hat I might add! A wind or gale or something blew up but we didn't worry to much. We were under a bit of cover and it wasn't cold or anything so we just stayed put. Then it rained. Well not so much rain but RAIN!!!!!! It poured ..... still no problem .... we were under cover and dry. It only lasted a short while and then the sun came out again and just as it did OMD!!!!!! I nearly jumped through the sky .... Mum screamed and Dad looked extremely startled. Now this was spooky! The sun was beginning to shine, the rain had stopped and this GREAT BIG flash hit something REALLY close to us. It was VERY scary. Before it hit you could hear a big crackle and then a flash and at exactly the same time the biggest clap of thunder I have ever heard. I THOUGHT I WAS DEAD!!!!!! MUM THOUGHT SHE WAS DEAD!!!!!!! Dad thought it was great. He loves storms. We could smell burning but couldn't see anything burning. Everyone that was inside the pub ran out to have a look and to see if we were ok. All the power had gone out. Crikey it was scary!!!!Mum and Dad said they have been in lots of storms before but never encountered anything like that. Sure don't want to encounter anything like that again. I nearly died. Dad says Mum and I are over dramatic but I don't think so. That was a close one, aye??
More later ....
Wanna run ... Love, Charlie.
