A little pelican painting I did which now lives in Malaysia.

The weather here in SE Queensland has suddenly turned from mild Autumn days to cold winter days with temperatures down aroun the 3 degrees C. Being a coastal subtropical climate, that's cold. Even the Great Dane got his winter woolies out.

I've packed my suitcase for our upcoming cruise and think I might just be able to take all of what I had selected as my initial choice. May need a little refining after I weigh it as we have to travel by air to Sydney to embark and thus restricted by airline limits for luggage.

I enjoyed my usual game of cards yesterday, did a little shopping today and watered my plants.

I'm somewhat amazed that this "Swine Flu" had been officially called a pandemic. If it is as mild as indicated and people get flu symtoms and don't go to their doctor because they don't really feel ill enough then no matter what they call it, it is going to circulate.

Looks like another cold night tonight with the dusk sky almost colourless with a tinge of pink.

That pelican is just delightful. Do you know the poem about the pelican?

"A funny old bird is the pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak, enough food for a week.
But I'm damned if I know how the helican."

Have a wonnnnnnnderful time on your cruise.

(It's summer in Canada ... Yay!)
