On a pleasant Winter's day
All the world's at Warners Bay.
Cycling, fishing, trampolining,
Walking, lazing, simply preening.
Lake Macquarie spread before us;
All the sounds of sea-bird chorus.
Little children, laughing, running.
Older people sitting, sunning.
Picnics, ice-cream, thermos tea.
There's nowhere else we'd rather be.


She was driving through the countryside, a lovely luscious blonde,
Heading for the bright lights and the thrills that lay beyond.
In her zippy little sports car, she was well above the limit,
But her mood was so ecstatic that no thought of speed could dim it.
When, suddenly, a cop appeared and flagged our Blondie down.
She smiled at him seductively but all he did was frown.
'You're going way, way, way too fast! I fear you must be booked!'
'Oh Officer' she twinkled then, 'Can't it be overlooked?'
'Show me your licence, Madam!' ; the cop was quite severe!
' I can't do that' she giggled, 'For I haven't got it here!'
'You haven't got it here!' he yelled ' There will be hell to pay!'
''How can I have it,' she replied, 'When you took it yesterday?'

I am not sure what to say about the blond...but, I sure do like the car! And, the tree is the top photo is a favorite of mine. My first thought was "those trees are in Australia, too!" Wonderful!

What a beautiful part of the world you showed in the first part. Sounds delightful. The second part was amusing.
