Typhoon #19

Friday

11th October, 2019

Typhoon #19 is heading directly for Tokyo City
then predicted to veer northwards and to impact both 
Koriyama City and Fukushima City. 





On this day in 1974 .... Friday, 11th October, 2019
I passed my Driv. Lic. Test @ the first attempt. 
Can't believe it was so long ago.

Eat Street ! 



Thanks City Cat for the super ride down the Brisbane River . 


Grubs Up ! 



Eat Street has some local entertainment going on the main stage . 
It wasn't half-bad. 

Dessert.  Some calories which I don't really need however it was very yummy.

Geoffrey 'n Andrea came to dinner @ B6. 



I prepared a leg of lamb to roast. 
Purchased from Angus Meats, just down the road. 







After main course, a walk to see the River Fire fireworks, 
then a simple dessert. 


An enjoyable evening.

Friday @ Coominya

Friday
20th September, 2019

I drove out to Coominya to the shed there
to get my old Mikisaki bicycle
and then to give it to Brendan
who wants to restore it as a retro bike. 

I was early so I trekked out to Atikinson's Dam. 
Just nooooo water ! 



This massive drought is clearly evident out this way .... 





Tough for the cattle to get green grass and enough to drink. 
Tough for Mr. Magpie to get enough to eat ... .so I gave him a cracker biscuit. 





Heading out from Atkinson's Dam and back towards Coominya township. 




This is the only green field for miles around, due to massive sprinklers
pumping out water onto the small crops. 



My Miki. 
What a legendary bicycle it has been. 
I bought it in maybe March, 1985. 
I had the front wheel separately. 

Put it all back together when Brendan arrived. 








Shimano 105 Ensemble. 


Thanks for all the great rides ! 
You'll be moving on to a different home now
however I'm sure a spruce-up will be 
just what the doctor ordered.
