Two birds with one stone.

Well this post won’t be too involved. I thought I’d comment on the fact that this is my 50th post. Quite a small milestone but one worth noting.
Yay I’m
50!

Now on to other matters: Just on a week ago Lisa at Lit and Life passed on an award to me.The Who Loves You Baby! Award is given to those bloggers whom you love and who have awarded you in the past! Pass it on!

Thank you Lisa! I appreciate the thought mate, I am most honoured.

So in the spirit of passing this award on to those who have awarded me I will pass this award to:


Jemima at The Reading Journey. Jemima gave me my first award “The Zombie Chicken Award.”

Carrie (alias Prettysiren) at the Prompt Romp. Carrie gave me a “Kreativ Blogger” award.

Heather at Gofita’s Pages Heather passed a “BINGO” award on to me.

Rachel at Parajunkee's View Rachel had the wisdom to give me the “Superior Scribbler Award.”

Rebecca at Living a Life of Writing Rebecca passed on a “Splash award” to me.


Finally, lest I be accused of false advertising here are:

“Two birds with one stone.”

This Guy is an Australian Pelican I shot (with a camera that is) near Eden. I have a feeling I may have used this piccie before, if so forgive me for laziness after a long week.

This fellow is a Sulphur Crested Cockatoo who was giving us cheek in the bush last week. You see these guys as domestic pets all over the world. They are one of our many, many, parrot species and are fortunately very common.

The stone is actually a small clump of boulders I captured near Canberra. They caught my eye because of the huge range of colours and textures in such a small space. A natural artists palette so to speak.

Congratulations on your 50th post and your award. I love your photos especially the last one. I minored in Geology in college and I always can find beauty in a little rock garden like this. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Congrats on the 50th post. It's not often you hear someone cheering about being 50!

Hi Wendy,
There is an interesting community out there. Thanks also for your appreciation on my wordplay. I can't help myself sometimes.

Hi Rachel,
You are most welcome.

Hi Brian,
Thankyou.
There is beauty everywhere isn't there? Amazing what colour you can find in just random pile of boulders.

Hi Lisa,
Thanks! I'm closer to 50 than 40 in years now but I don't think I'll cheer quite as loud when I hit that milestone :-)
