27th November, 2017

I went to the Garden Centre and bought a lilly and a few small plants. 
Then I got some pots and started a balcony garden. 

Mr. Possum came to visit ....he wanted to eat the red berries on the tree. 
Delicious ?  He thought so ! 

 A gecko came to see what the fuss was all about ....

For a new owner now.

Later, I made some healthy soupy for my dinner.

I drove out to Coominya

At sunrise, glorious sunrise
it’s a big catch!
A big catch of sardines!
On the beach, it’s like a festival
but in the sea, they will hold
for the tens of thousands dead.

#1    Carrot's 18th Memorial Day
#2  My 40th "Anniversary" of surgery for my Volkmann's Ischemic Contracture.
Just surgery, not the incident itself. 


Chikako & I went to a Japanese Restaurant 
near her apartment for a wonderful counter lunch together. 

Then I caught the Shinkansen from Koriyama City
to Ueno where I changed to the Keisei Line for Narita. 

Then flew Jetstar from Narita to the Gold Coast 
arriving Thursday, 9th November @ 6 am. 

I then caught the 760 bus to Varsity Lakes train station
to go to  Brisbane and changed to Morningside.
