Cowart's Common Room
Catching up

Sorry I havenít been able to be on PC very much lately, but I am trying to catch up with everyoneís news. My surgery is this week so Iíll be out of action briefly but will be back as soon as I am able. Itís been very busy - I have got just about all of the Christmas shopping bought and wrapped. Things are now as organised as possible so that the household will continue hopefully smoothly without me as chief cook and bottle washer for a while etc.
We had a wonderful outing on the harbour early last week. It was windy after several very calm days so the albatross were very obviously enjoying stretching their wings and flying. (They need wind to be able to take off.) It is difficult to tell from these photos but their wing span is more than 4 metres. It was a truly wonderful as so many flew low over the boat. Several playful seals came up close to investigate us as well.
Am off shortly to collect my husband from the airport. Heís been in Australia for the last 6 days watching Tiger Woods play golf in Melbourne in something of a heat wave - over 30 degrees C every day. (The surgeon timed the date of my surgery specifically so that my hub could go still go and watch Tiger and then get back to support me!!)
