6 JANUARY 2012 : WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : WINTER

I have decided on OBEDIENCE and will now locate the WINTER photograph for the Challenge. It won’t be from this year due to there being no Winter as yet and its unlikely to be impressive due to its not getting that cold up here on the North Coast but I WILL find a mid winter shot for you.

Please tell me they are going to issue another challenge tonight ! That 2012 won’t see the end of that.

6 JANUARY 2012 : BUNYIPS

044

THE YAAN : Morning to you all out in the World. Its sunny and clear here and a day very much to my taste. I am going out to the Pool a little later. In the meantime, I continue to keep my hands off the simmering pots on the various gas burners of my life. I am letting sleep that which is currently asleep.  I am taking a look at BUNYIPS.  A seeming irrelevance but curiously comforting.

First up, a Bunyip colouring in jpeg. Download. Finish the story. Colour in and add your own Bunyip.

Leaving behind childish things, I dig into the Trove for Newspaper reports of the Legendary Bunyip. Scepticism and Denial feature strongly and it seems few people are wiling to accept the existence of the Bunyip.
