Happy holidays…

blanchie-marcus

 

We had a lovely visit from Blanche and Marcus (who are holidaying in Tathra, as we speak) on Thursday night; they came to dinner literally glowing after spending the day at the beach…the only place to be during the present heat wave…

It’s well-earned relaxation for Blanchie, who’s plumb in the throes of moving studio in Melbourne. And there’s plenty of exciting news to come, including the Corning Museum of Glass’s very recent acquisition of one of her fabulous bandoliers. Pics and snippets soon.

Otherwise, for more info, check out her website.

 Sounds like a great party – shame the Gang’s got a clashing engagement…





Oh yeah…

Mamana Mamanta in Adelaide…

   show

 

Luna’s sent through some snaps of the launch of the Mamana Mamanta : Gradual Friendship tour at Tandanya in Adelaide. Loons, of course, went across for the opening – and to give a presentation for the public program component of the show…

She had a lovely time catching up with the Adelaide glass mob, and is over the moon that the show is finally on the road. Next stop Bathurst…

For tour dates, go here.





An all too classic Australia Day long weekend at Wyndham…

gingera-fire

 

Our beloved Jingera is on fire and we’re into the third day of fire bombing and continual chopper action. It’s deep in rough bush so they’ve been dropping in specialty crews…

Makes for great excitement – except for all those poor brave buggers having to go in and deal with it. The fire was kicked off by a lighning strike, of course, and we’re no doubt in for more of the same over the next few months…

Cricket was cancelled – the pitch being needed for more pressing business…

And then yesterday we were confronted by that other scourge of the Great Aussie Summer – the red belly black in the front yard (1.3 meters, no less.)

Today we’re going for the trifecta – and joining the bogans for a barbie at the beach…





Happy birthday (for Saturday) Robbie Burns…

Uh, oh. Nearly neglected to add our salutations to the patron saint of the Wyndham pub. Happy 250th, Robbie – we’ll be sure to toast a dram or three of single malt down at your namesake watering hole, the Robbie Burns Hotel…
