The cat came back...

The cat came back(pause) the very next day. The cat came back...they thought he was a gonner but the cat came back, (pause) he just couldn't stay away! Does anyone remember that crazy song that Fred Penner used to sing on his silly little kids show? Well, remember my crazy story about the possum who just couldn't resist the smell of my pineapple muffins? Well, I baked some delicious cookies the other day and once again, the smell beckoned to him and he paid us another visit. Although this time, Rick was home and I was dead to the world and so my brave knight battled the possum this time. The next morning however I could tell he had been there because my fruit bowl was half devoured and there was half a banana peel on the counter which once contained a banana but now was only a half of a peel. Then last night as we sat outside with the Elders and our neighbors eating a carrot cake, we saw a possum crawling along the power lines. Well, at least I know my baking is appealing! Ha ha ha ha ha...














Well, on another note, everyone knows probably that Rick and I were in Fiji about a month ago and our friends Dennis and Kelly Heinzlemeir met us there and spent a week in Fiji harvesting our pearls with us and then they came over to Oz and spent a week with us here as well. We had an absolutely beautiful time and Kelly took heaps and heaps of pics which I will share some of with you. I know anyone who has ever been to the farm will totally appreciate seeing the pics and hopefully for the rest of you, it will inspire you to want to make a visit sometime in the not-so-distant future! Just let us know when you'd like to go and we can help make some of the necessary arrangements.






These are pics of firstly, the dogs Lamoni and Grommit. Then there's Dennis and I checkin out the view...The a beautiful pic of our private beach and then there's me with Baby Angie. She's so cute eh!



This is a pic of me n' Kelly and the 2 at the top are Margaret who is standing behind the oh so yummy tray of doughnuts she made for us that day! They were absolutely mouth watering delish. And then there's us with David (Margaret's husband) who happens to be a very good pig hunter and catches fish for us and that day he had taken us to Taveuni which was such a cool cool place.










Finally, here's a few of all of us working really really hard...hee hee

I could look at the pictures over and over...wish we were back there...we've got 4 feet of snow and I miss the lush greenery and beautiful ocean. But I don't miss worrying about possums coming in the door while we're sleeping nor the birds waking me up at 4 or 5 am!!!!! I also miss people saying "how ya goin'?" and cheap chips! I miss Margarets donuts and beautiful smile...and Dickie's sense of humour. And most of all...I'm lost without my close friends...The Cockies!!!!!! NOT!!!! Miss you guys! See ya soon for a "To Be Continued..."
