A blanket of Clouds

Thanks to our Host Klaus with Sandy, Sylvia, Wren, Fishing Guy and ...Louise. SkyWatch Friday continues to create a huge sensational Phenomenon in the Meme World. Please keep Skywatching every Friday....the Sky is just Above You!.

Taken inside a running car during our recent trip to South Australia with timing and  hefty of inconvenience. At this vantage, we were already within the territory of the state, past Murray River, where the car was ferried across the border from Victoria.

This photo was taken at the junction of Murray River bordering the states of Victoria and South Australia.

As you can see, the sky kept changing its mind whether it would stay sunny or gloomy. At the end of the journey, its heavy load of sorrow finally unleashed with inconsolable downpours for the entire duration of our stay but graced with few sunny moments breaking the doom now and then. It was more of Winter than Spring!
Such is the mood of our season so far this year.

In Close Proximity

Thank You Klaus and your dynamic team: Sandy, Louise, Wren, The Fishing Guy and Sylvia.

More to see in My World Tuesday.

The Oval

RSL Club

Near this club may be which is only a walking distance from where I live, but ironically, it was only yesterday that I finally was able to get inside the premise to meet up with friends whom I did not see in a long time. Here, we enjoyed a scrumptious Smorgasbord lunch together.

Looking at the food gathered, untouched, unconsumed that went to the waste bin, I winced thinking of those who are suffering from hunger and starving to death without anything to eat, and here, no one was showing sign of concern that there is Recession. A place of Abundance and Waste indeed!

The green empty space on top is the local Sports Oval, the hub of schools' and weekend community sports activities: Soccer, Cricket and Rugby.

This is also My

Our Weekend Memoirs by Ebie and Company

Just visiting one of the memory lanes somewhere in Orange, NSW. This brings me tears somehow I can't get away from being nostalgic. In contrast, we don't get snow down here in the city, being it is located along the coastal lines. I know that the view is different from those of you who live in the Antipodean pole, so just a kind of giving you an idea how we, downunderners, can also cope this weather. We are also a well-known whingers from the southern hemisphere who whinge about everything: from weather be it dismal or hot, to late train or bus service, to hosting Olympics Games (2000) or whatever change is taking place. When everything comes up beautifully - everyone then claims "I'm proud to be Australian." Does this ring familiar to your own country? If this is true, then we indeed belong to the United Nations.


Okay in the point of order: Top is our former home - the frontyard. The snow blanket covers my garden.Middle picture is the street where this home is located. Bottom: is a portion of the large backyard, big enough to build a granny's flat. That's my little girls.

We all rugged up like sausage rolls and went outside as early as 4 to 5o'clock in the morning to start the fun so we won't miss out. The whiteness of the surrounding makes it look as if it is broad daylight. Then our neighbours noticed what we were doing. So they followed suit. We did it because by the time the sun is up at 7am, all the snow melts. We have pretty strong and cancerous sun rays down here especially on Summer Days. Don't panic, we survive! It's different though up in the Snowy Highlands where the ski actions are!


The Dream

The biggest snow in Orange in my memory. The year was 1990 precisely in June 25th, the day my youngest girl was born. These last two pictures were taken in the vicinity of Orange Base Hospital Maternity Ward.
