Ned Kelly town

Ned Kelly town
In 2006 when I last took the family to Victoria we stopped at Glenrowan, famous for the Ned Kelly siege. Today we’re in Jerilderie, famous for the other Kelly raid and his letter.

Happy birthday to Will and an awesome day!

Happy birthday to Will and an awesome day!
Wednesday is my son’s 10th birthday. This is a wonderful thing and a nice milestone for any kid, but especially for Will. He’s seem so much, and experienced so much already with all his medical issues that it wasn’t necessarily a given that he’d reach this. I know I can tell myself that sort of ...

Happy Easter or whatever you choose to celebrate

Happy Easter or whatever you choose to celebrate
A Happy Easter here, but also a quiet one. Just time at home really, basically the entire weekend. Close by relatives not too well so no visit, so just family and fun here. Easter Sunday, AKA Chocolate day, was particularly appealing for the boys: I watched a few things — the music documentary “Sound City” ...
