"I don't really understand that process called reincarnation but if there is such a thing I'd like to come back as my daughter's dog. " Leonard Cohen

Rest in peace, Mr Cohen.

Fabulous version of "Walking the dog", get your tapping foot ready:

Our town has houses from every period since the Victorian period. This walk took us past Art Deco, modern, and Edwardian/Federation cottages. Note, Federation was in 1901 in Australia. 

"Australia became an independent nation on 1 January 1901 when the British Parliament passed legislation allowing the six Australian colonies to govern in their own right as part of the Commonwealth of Australia.
The Commonwealth of Australia was established as a constitutional monarchy. 'Constitutional' because the Commonwealth of Australia was established with a written constitution, and 'monarchy' because Australia's head of state was Queen Victoria."  Australian Government website.





We ended up invited into the home of friends we hadn't seen for over a year to talk to, except in passing. It was good to talk.

It's pretty hard to wear out a Jack Russell.

This morning since I woke up the cows in the nearby fields have been very loud. I wonder why. I hope they find some nice shade today.
