Missed Fridays

I can't actually remember what I did on Friday.  I know I was already in Taranaki, arrived on Thursday.    And I know I missed the Friday Shoot Out.  After I'd stopped on my journey south to take the photo, too.  Never mind.

I remember we had a party on Saturday night for my son-in-law's 40th.   Seems to me  you get to a certain age and cease to worry about how you look and what others may think.

I'm pretty sure that age is 40. The photos from the night will illustrate why I say that when I learn to upload them on my new tech toy.

On Sunday we played again but with more children this time.  Fun and games.

Tuesday I went for a little adventure to Whangamomona, along the Forgotten World Highway.  A delight for those who enjoy driving.   Wonderful views from the saddles,  four of them along the way. No fewer than two churches at Whangamomona, population around 30.  Coffee and fine hospitality at the pub.  As I was leaving one locked church a friendly local shouted from a passing ute that the church around the corner was open if I wanted to pray.

I only went as far as Whangamomona, I'll come back and do the trip right through to Taumarunui one day when I get out of bed earlier.

Today's highlight will be a Halloween party at Aiden's day care centre.  Yay!


  1. Shame you can't upload some of those beautiful scenes just yet. Sounds like you are having fun with your grandson too.

  2. Sounds like a journey that just has to be done before we pop our clogs. Having seen a photo of the evening on Facebook your sense of fun and daring (which I know is there from experience) certainly shows!

  3. So glad you are having a great time. Love your photo.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
