Good Morning.....!!


Waaaaaak! who ruffled your feathers.....!!
We've had windy weather in Perth for the last few days, REALLY windy weather. My old mate Mr. Grumpy galah had to hold onto the fence to save himself while he squawked at me for breakfast early yesterday morning. At this time of the year the cool breezes coming in from the desert early morning working together with the sea breeze coming in around midday keep the temperatures very pleasant indeed, it's only when mother nature gets a wee bit tardy and comes in late that things start to heat up. I suspect she may be late today, we're expecting a 35C day..oh la! now we begin, give me some of your showers now please. Have a wonderful weekend, take care and stay safe....

  4. Oh my, this made me think of Dame Edna Everage. Don't ask! The reason must be that I'm tired and sick and have been toiling with fever! :-( This a gorgeous one!

  7. Poor Mr. Grumpy Galah does look like he's holding on for dear life so he doesn't get blown across the landscape.

  8. Mr. Grumpy sounds demanding:) But with colors like that, I'd give in and help the chap out:) Is he wild? Very exotic parrot!

  10. Mr. Grumpy is quite elegant looking, all dressed up like that with a red vest! I'd be a bit ticked off, too, if the wind threatened to blow me off my favorite perch. Tell him he should be glad that he's not in Florida now as Hurricane Sandy is creating a few windy challenges. But things are going to get immeasurably worse up in New Jersey and New York as the storm moves north and collides with cold Canadian air. They're calling it a "Frankenstorm" with high tides, high winds, high water, tons of rain and maybe snow. Estimated damage is already $1 billion USD and it's not made landfall yet. :(

  16. I would gladly take some of your heat for our showers, but only if this bird comes with it!

  17. Thanks for the fantastic photos - galahs are one of my very, very favourite birds. [The colour when a flock settles in a tree at sunset can be astonishing]. Mr Grumpy sounds right - they have strong personalities. Now you've got me grinning like a fool. Thanks!

  18. He looks like he's wearing rhinestones around his eyes. Reminds me of Dame Edna, possum.

  27. Sitting here in my ex-Royal Navy duffel coat bought cheap from the charity shop, wearing woolen gloves with the fingers cut out inside my mitts, my 'beanie hat' on my head and cowering over a candle to keep warm I feel real bad that it might be a bit windy and the temp only 35%.
    The pictures are great mind!
