Still Traveling.

Hello Everyone ~~ It is nice to be back on the air. I am having a wonderful time seeing some my loved ones.

Hopefully will post some photos later on.

At present John and I are at Peter’s Holties House, we arrived yesterday and leave again tomorrow. It is always good to be with my little brother. Well he is 2 years younger, not too sure about the “little”.

We stayed two nights at Gladstone, where Julie and her husband live, also her son and daughter and 2 lovelylittle grand-daughters who are my Great-Grand-Daughters. I hope to post some photos.

Some of you will remember that Julie had a major operation earlier this year. So was great to see her looking quite well again, a big relief. We never stop worrying about our kids, whatever their age.

Peter has, as usual, been helping me with the computer and showing me different things. Not sure when he got so smart, but I am glad he did.

We even went for a short walk around a market, I always like to do that and can always find some little thing that I like or want, and not necessarily NEED.

Would you believe I brought a joke with me to post and said little brother has recently used it.

More jokes, after I get home Thursday night.

Our next couple of nights are with 2 of John’s 3 daughters, they live about 3 hours away near Brisbane, the capital of Queensland.

I must admit the weather here is beautiful, back to summer clothing. It wont be so great having to get back to warm clothes and even heaters, but home is always nice.

Hope you are all well and happy. Thank you so much for all the good wishes for a safe and pleasant trip.

It has been that so far, and I am very grateful to John for bringing me all this way.

Cheers, Merle.

I'm developing a few skills but the 10 year old is sharper in some ways than I.

And she loves to let me know it. "Here, grandma, let me show you".

What a very neat post Merle, how did you manage that?

Merle, I am so glad to know that you are having a good time on your trip, and I hope it has not been too strenuous for you. I'm back home, but too tired to post much at present.

Now who said old folks don't do road trips? I hope Peter gives you a squeeze for me? Have fun.

It sounds like you are having a wonderful time at Peter's. Does John have a blog also?

For some reason, and don't ask me why, I thought is was warm everywhere in Australia...but from your post it seems that you also have different weather in different parts of the country. I just wasn't thinking I guess. Getting old does that to people.*VBS*

It's wonderful to hear about your family and what a great time that you are having. In the post about the Four Generations I thought that you were already back home, but apparently you are still traveling. I should have read this post first...but I seem to do everything backwards sometimes. *LOL*

Merle, glad you are having a great time. It is always wonderful to catch up with family members you don't see that often. Enjoy the warm weather ... it is still cold back here in Victoria !!
Take care, Meow
