And the forest trees aren't bad, either.

That's all the pics, for now. I took a couple of Melbourne city street scenes on my mobile, but will have to process those.
Right now, I'm bushed and heading for the shower and bed. Have a big day tomorrow. Places to go, people to see, etc. (I must be really wicked, hey ?)

Might have to go up to Queensland again, soon, too. Not business. My daughter was preparing for her law phd submission, and was recently told that she needs a tricky brain operation. She is one of those people who always has a very brave and cheery exterior, and smiles through it all, but, underneath, I know she is scared. So, all I can do is be her Dad, love her, and tell her everything will be ok.

Think I'll go make a cuppa before bed.

Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Thanks, folks, for your kind thoughts re my daughter, Robyn.  :-*

Just to explain. Robyn had a shunt inserted for hydrocephalus shortly after she was born.
It is still there, but now causing brain problems as it disintegrates.
She has been advised to have an operation to fix the problem, however, due to the fact that surgeons now have to warn their patients about any risks that could possibly be involved (due to their own risk of litigation), she is very reluctant to have that done.
So .. she is delaying, and researching, in the hope of finding an alternative treatment.
It's quite worrying for her, and her family.
