9 Mile

Winnie at the end of her run
Broke the dog

I just took Winnie for a run down 9 mile single track. It is actually only about 8km but leads to 9 mile road. Winnie managed 6.47km before collapsing (I hung my Garmin off her collar). I put her in the ute and took her home for a dunk in the pool. She was a bit over-heated.

Poor Winnie, I think I’ll keep her runs below 3km from now on.

On another note, I want to build a slideshow thing for the site using just HTML and CSS.

Write thoughts

Like pretty much all the posts on this blog this one represents another unfinished thought. I am prompted to write this because I re-read my previous post, Showies. In it I began with my usual nostalgic claptrap before wending my way into my experience of the Silver City Show. I …

Another Sunday

The Hay Wain, a cart in a creek but Constable loved the clouds
John Constable’s, ‘cart bogged in creek’

A truly dull Sunday. I have been doing the tax. I do not really feel like it. On the plus side, tomorrow is a local Broken Hill holiday, Picnic Day. Maybe things will pick up.

My Ma living by the latin phrase, Solvitur Ambulando

Even though it looks like my Mum is about to cheekily poke her tongue out at the photographer it reminds me of Ivan Bilibin’s beautiful illustration which I used on this post and currently on my 404 error page.

Thinking …

Back in Broken Hill

I got back into Broken Hill on Saturday night and slept like the dead. That journey home absolutely kills. Yesterday I just loved being home. Having a shower in my own shower, eating with Re & H on the couch, watching some telly and going to bed. In my own freaking …

It already seems an age since visiting Cornwall. Next week I will be putting Re and H on a plane going back to Broken Hill. I will be following them a week later.

Since leaving Cornwall Re and I have been documenting our travels on Facebook and Instagram. I have …
