He has vivid dreams and runs in his sleep - like Henry used to do!
It is so nice having dogs around us after losing Henry and Chica. Very Nice!
We told him we have enough now the tree was cut. He stayed awhile - three hours = talking to Brian on the veranda. He is born and bred in Kingaroy. He lives nearby and has a wife called Vida (which in Spanish means life).
We heard many tales from Bob and he kept us amused and happy all morning. He went away happy with a dozen new-laid eggs.

I think I might walk up and down the drive to lose weight, but haven't so far, should though, what with all those apple pies and cream teas.
I'll start in the morning - how about that!

I met a new friend the lovely Raywyn from New Zealand - we did have fun while Brian won.
I will try to put more pictures on this page but as I am a novice at this blogging it might not happen. Wait and be patient!
We went to an American diner in Raffles, not the garden with tea, not the restaurant with buffet, too expensive.
I was surprised how Singapore is - very clean, very friendly, and so interesting. It was a shame I was tired and too hot to do much. We will come back and stay longer - next year perhaps. There is so much more to see, two days isn't long enough.
Our hotel Miramar was just right, it was beside the river and at night we walked down and sat in a bistro and had tapas... it was very hot and very much alive. Stunning with the lights. The people. We liked it there, by the river, with our wine and prawns - tiger prawns.
This is the paddock where the goats are, the house is in the background. You can see why we just love it here. Val will have to dig us out when she comes back. There is still plenty of grass for the goats to eat. But, once it is is a little lower we will move the goats to the lower one, the one with the trees in. Look at that blue sky, it is about three in the afternoon and the temp is 21C.
We walk around the paddocks with the dogs, picking up wood and checking fences. Brian does it mostly! I do sometimes... If it is a day like this I do walk a bit.
I think it all looks pretty green but I am told of course it will change and become dry like Menorca I suppose in the summer, only hotter.
He likes to sit
in the sun.
Max likes to sleep on the sofa on his tartan rug at my feet. He sleeps usually all day and goes out all night. He has a collar with bells on and shakes himself outside our bedroom window each morning to wake us!
