Sounds fantastic, Ian and Judy!

Hope you have a fantastic day. Will be checking the calendar to see what we are doing.

Hope all goes really well, Ian. The little bit of rain will freshen things up beautifully.

Unfortunately we have to go in the opposite direction - to Townsville.

We missed out on most of the rain last night. It seems most of Brisbane received from 40mm to 135mm, all we got was a bit of drizzle. It's been four months without rain.

I sincerely hope all goes well for you and Judy on the weekend and that it is a total success.

When I spoke with you in Nambour I think I told you that I might be moving into your area....Well QR have decided to send me to Gladstone, so I have bought a home in Tannum Sands...I will certainly give you a call if I get a chance when I am next down in Brisbane.

Andrew.

Hi Andrew.
Good to hear from you.
The offer of plants still stands.
May see you one day.

Haven't escaped yet Pam......still got 7 weeks to go but will be settled there for Christmas......back to civilisation and out of the desert!

Thanks Ian, I may take you up on the offer just depends on what I retrieve from Bundaberg.... Some of my rarities are being baby sat by friends there. After 2 1/2 years I will have to free up their shadehouse room by removing my stuff. The house I bought just simply doesn't have the same yard space of my Bundy home but I am still happy with it :D
