I love Boxers, I really do. This fellow has a decidely retarded look about him, but he's still adorable.

Buckley, a little 8 week old border collie cross staffy, was found abandoned in a Melbourne school yard. His ears & tail had been hacked off with scissors by some monster.

We have been inundated with donations & 'get well soon' cards & letters for Buckley. I have arranged a display of photos of Buckley & the letters & cards he's received in reception. This one was sent in by 2 kids, 1 was 4, the other 6 years old. Bless.

This is Ric & Gail's 'Toastie Kitty' at work. They've graffitied it with pithy sayings. The takeaway shop is called Crack House Gormett for a reason. Mainly because years ago, the man who owned it used to always have builders crack & was thus named 'Crack Man'. When he left, the woman who managed it became 'Crack Lady'. Gormett is our pronounciation of 'gourmet'.

Yesterday on the tram I got talking to an old lady who was wearing a fabulous leopard print coat. She has lived in Melbourne since 1954. Before I got off the tram she gave me this lolly.

After yum cha at Red Emperor at Southbank, Shaun & I wandered - slightly drunk - around the city. We sat down for a bit in Bourke St Mall, opposite Royal Arcade.
