And This Little Pig Said Support

Today is 65 Roses Day in Australia, in support of Cystic Fibrosis, to raise money for ongoing research, and care.
I went to school with a CF child, we all watched over him, knowing that he wasn't supposed to make 3 or 7 or 14, Michael finally lost his battle with this awful disease just a few months short of his 26th birthday, while on the waiting list for a heart/lung transplant.
It is hard to find the money to go around the many different worthy causes, but please try to find a little something for CF and 65 Roses, be it a simple wrist band, rose pin or a pen.

We have come so far, from the days where children didn't make their, 3rd, 7th and 14th birthdays. Now more are making it into their 20's and 30's.

Breathe Life!!!

And This Little Pig Said Y

My first post on a new blog, I haven't even had time to fill out the profile... yet.

I plan to fill this blog with many different thoughts, ideas, dreams, ...a mix.

Animals, both farm and pet, craft and photography, gardening and flowers, there will be no limit. Ha famous last words.

All working towards the dream, a little farm of our own. Mum and me.

So I thought I would start with what I hope, NO will be a weekly event.

I work for a Livestock Auctioneer, or Stock and Station Agent, and nearly every week I say "If only I had brought my camera." There is always something interesting, unusual or just plain cute.

So this week I did, and when I saw this young heifer come over the weighbridge, well the thoughts and words were obvious.
So after I had finished, off I went, little camera in hand to find this beast in a yarding of over a 1000 head.

Autumn/Fall in Oz, and we have had a first autumn rain, so the saleyards are a little, um messy.
I think little 'Y' falls into the cute category.

Talk soon... LiBBiE
