Nice to see you!

Three major events occurred for me last year (2010), all in the space of about 2 weeks. I turned 50. The following day I got married. Two weeks later, my oldest daughter became pregnant with her first child and my first grandchild.

Most middle-aged people will tell you that in their minds, they still feel 20 something. It's the same for me.

Wasn't it only yesterday that I was planning a night out with guys from the surf club? That gorgeous new perm. Flaired, cuffed denims and the red t-shirt with the off-the-shoulder frill. Corked platform wedgies. **sigh**

Suddenly I'm looking in the mirror and wondering how 30 years can flash by so damned quickly!

So here I am in cyberspace, sharing my genuine shock and horror with anyone who'll listen and maybe I'll even meet some other over 50s who find themselves in the same predicament!

Welcome to my dilemna!!

A Big Day Out

"Learn how to be happy with what you have, while you pursue all that you want" - Jim Rohn


A section of the Bundabert Post Office building
There are few things interesting or attractive about Bundaberg, but the facade of the Post Office is interesting.

I did see some Art Deco buildings that look like they might be worth a second look.

I visited the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery, while Woman of Many Talents worked and Mrs Bucket was doing her own thing.

They currently have an exhibit in Gallery One entitled "Ranamok Glass Prize".

Gallery Two has an exhibit with pieces by three art groups from the local area who interpreted and responded to the word "cracked".

Lunch at the local RSL Club was delicious.

The weather was oppressively hot and humid, and as we left late this afternoon, a storm was rolling in from the West.

Thankfully, it rained most of the way home, which reduced the temperature a little.

I had a really nice day with Mrs Bucket and Woman of Many Talents.

We once had regular lunches, movie days and shopping trips together, but this is only our second outing together this year.  There was lots to catch up on and even though Woman of Many Talents had to work a couple of hours, it was a nice 'girlie' day.

It's been a big day.  We left at 8am and returned after 6.30pm and I'm feeling a little brain dead tonight - perhaps you can tell by these vague ramblings!

So, I'm off to bed.

Nite all.
