Such a clever guy.

This is the image I tried to put up yesterday for Wordless Wednesday. 
The art is one of my works on canvas, 'Regeneration', wrapped around the blue vase are beads I put together long before I started digital art. I found it interesting that the colors match. The glass ball is handmade by Gene Poult, bought about 20 years ago just before he died.

Frustrating Thursday & Wordless Wednesday - Australian Bush

Very fed up with blogger! Wouldn't let me do a post yesterday & now I can't see the pic I have put up today. I have trouble with looking at other blogs. Thinking of changing over to Wordpress. But then again it may be me, or this computer - who knows???!!!? (Just tried the old format - up came the pic!!!)
It's been a busy & frustating week.

Dragging limbs...

I love these trees, not sure what they are but they screen next doors house & back yard.

Going, going but not gone! 
Next door wanted to cut all the branches but only cut the ones that were leaning over their side - and then threw the cut branches on to my side!

My limbs were dragging tree limbs out from the back to the front (green waste pick-up next month). Time to stop now for a rest.

Talking 'bout Books in June

What to read next? Finished reading 'Milk & Honey' (couldn't get to the end quick enough!) Dark & depressing. Really need something light & fluffy so maybe 'Mixed Fancies' will do ( although I may have read it before.)

To buy or not to buy?

I want & need a new (second-hand) car before my little  silver Holden is taken off the road.

This Honda is for sale  (nice colour!) seems to be in good condition.
Need advice, really wanted a smaller car.

1766 & all that.......

While searching for the STONE family of Northolt on I came across this document dated 15th October 1766.
At a meeting of this Minister. Church Wardens and Principal Inhabitants of the Parish of Northall, it was unanimously agreed that the fences ????? to custom immemorial. Viz: The North and East ??? belong solely to Robert Child Esq of Osterley to repair as Landlord of the Court House, Lord of the Manor Etc.’
Leets...... Downe Barnes - the widow Stone, tenant. 
It goes on to mention Robert Stone of West End, tenant a few times.
Down Barnes, Northolt was where my grandfather was born in 1865. The widow Stone would have been his great, great grandmother!
