How good was this??

How good was this???  Can you see anything strange looking in this tree.
Well can you see it??
Here's a closer look!
Mum and I were at the local park, come sporting fields, the other day. We were having a great time.  It was right on dusk after the most beautiful day. I'd been chasing the ball but I decided to drop it and check out the peemail. Mum went to get the ball and just as she did she heard a bit of a rustle in the tree in front of her. She looked up and the above is what she saw. That would have been it but then she saw this:-
He took off up the tree at a rate of knots.
he was  a big healthy lookin' bloke.
he was heading to the top for the young eucalyptus tips.
 Mum said she used to see heaps of these blokes but they are getting a bit scarce around here and they are a bit hard to spot.   Like ...... they don't do much in the day time!!  Most of the time they are just trying to get over the hangover from the night before. Mum was VERY excited to see him.  She took heaps of photos but they all looked the same to me. She said 'it doesn't matter how many times you see 'em ..... it's a thrill, every time'.  It didn't thrill me!!!!!  Dead boring if you ask me. I didn't even so much as bark at him.  Really ... why all the fuss??

Before I go I just wanted to wish all you blokes and Sheilas out there a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.  Here's my Christmas card and I would just love it if all of you would do me the honour of adding it to your numerous other cards. I wanted to send it to you personally but I only had a few email addresses so if you haven't already got one ...... you have now, aye??  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!!!!!!

Wanna run .... Love, Charlie.
