Based on the enormous smiling faces at Luna Park in Melbourne, Victoria and Steeplechase Park in Brooklyn, New York, Luna Park's 9-metre-wide smiling face, as well as its flanking towers, have presided over the main entrance for almost all of the park's existence.                                              Published 05 Jan 2017.  Sydney NSW 2000

A rainbow is a good enough reason to hop out of the tractor
A little rainbow is a good enough reason to hop out of the tractor and stretch the legs for a few minutes.                   Published 17 May 2017.  Gladstone Central QLD 4680

How good are these berries!
By Glenn Webster ·  · From Pic of the Week
At the end of autumn the berries in the hawthorn trees around Daylesford are at their ripest and tastiest. Families of gang gang cockatoos come and feast on them before winter sets in and can be seen in the trees beside the quiet roads and laneways.  This male was with a group of about 20 others all in the same tree.                                                    Published 22 May 2017.  Daylesford VIC 3460

This is Jack, he is my dad
By missfarmerjojo ·  · From Pic of the Week
This is Jack he is my dad.   Last night we wrote some of his stories down. His long term memory is astounding; He gave me addresses, dates, prices he paid for things like his first truck and so many details of his life.   Jack is a true wanderer and at 82 still loves to get in his car and wander the backroads. 
I inherit a lot of my traits from Jack and he still lives by his mother's instructions as a young boy "behave yourself and be home before dark!"  I give the same instructions to my son. 
From dad I inherited a love of wandering, talking, and a deep love of animals especially horses.  He only retired from his horses at the age of 76, breaking his last Clydesdale into harness at 72. 
Jack only stays one night so he has wandered off early this morning to look at things along backroads on his way home, he always tells me as we part that he has had a wonderful life full of happy times.        Published 22 May 2017.  Port Fairy VIC 3284
