Happy Fathers’ Day!

Some things are best said in person, and when they can’t be, they’re best said on video: Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

The quiet days of winter…

Haven’t been here much recently… just laying low really. I suppose we’re just coming out of the last of winter here now. Coonabarabran isn’t the coldest place I’ve ever been, but it’s up there. You notice it’s winter, let’s put it that way… So it’s a time to lay low, save money, spend the time ...

Amusingly obstinate 2-year-old

Amusingly obstinate 2-year-old
A wonderful little episode from Lachie tonight… we’ve noticed recently how good his language is, and especially the way he likes to say hello, goodbye and goodnight to everyone in the house. He’d go from room to room saying “Goodnight Dad!”, “Goodnight Alex!”, “Goodnight Will!”… then Sallie pointed out to me that he does not ...

Super Will saves the day again

Super Will saves the day again
On Saturday… let’s just say Sallie and I were having an argument. Doesn’t matter why, or what it was about (nothing substantial, as is so often the case), but it happens. Nothing but verbal sparring, of course, but in retrospect, it’s never nice. I may have said something to the effect of “well I should ...

The things Will says…

The things Will says...
Over the weekend and recently, some lines from my eldest son: “I’m good with people but not with birds”. (Will’s had this terrible fear of birds since he was very young… but at least people are a-ok with him!) “My Dad’s a weirdo”. (I overheard this one mentioned to his cousin… though I must confess ...

This is called Summer?

Apparently it’s the first day of Summer. But you wouldn’t know it with this weather… rain for a week, flooding, darkness in the day and more. It’s rained more this year than for years previously, and don’t we know it. With the roof leaking and things gone well past “it’s good for the farmers” (it’s ...

Introducing Star Wars

One Saturday afternoon just recently, I sat down with Will and we watched Star Wars together for the first time. No doubt it’s a bit grown up for him right now (in story, not in “content”), but he enjoyed it anyway, and took it in in his own way. I mean, what’s not to like, ...

“I want to be a computer man”

Sallie and I went to Will’s school assembly today, their last one for the term, because Will’s class was performing. It was a cute little show, where KC sang a song about what you want to be when you grow up, then they played a little video about the same topic, where every kid in ...

Election Day 2010

I have resisted or even saying much about the election this year. None of it’s particularly impressive really, not to mention the media coverage — worse than ever — but that said, it’s clear to anyone who knows me who I’d prefer to see win. I’m in a funny position this time around — I ...
