Sleepy Town All Over Again Part One

So ive been puttin off the pictures in Echuca last week...too busy y'know...people lead lives...billz to pay...mouths to feed...not everything's bout my trip up north...

Haha kiddin...do i sound like that big a jerk? Well im just a reallly good procrastinator...

First things first...again...i'd like to thank the Noske-Turner family for havin micheLe and i (among 50-odd other folks) over at their sprawlin home for the weekend...the cookin and the plannin...the invites and the mess...how did we make it to Sunday mornin i dont know...

Secondly...my deepest apologies to Marg...ive heard how upset you were when i took a picture of ya neighbour's beautiful flowers and went harpin on about it...i meant to take some shots of the house on Sunday mornin...but i completely forgot! Forgive me...i promise you...there'll always be another time :)

Thirdly...Chris...you were a champ...from pickin us up...and ferryin us around like we were some A-list actors...the conversations...to sendin us off...you were all too nice...are you runnin for President anytime soon? I'll vote for you!

Forthly...Emily...first time it was a blessin...second time it's a curse...ive never said goodbye to you...why are you never home on Sunday when i leave? You may think im rude now...

Fifthly...hey Jess...your relatives are weird...i mean...good weird...a conversation with Lester started from blogs to farmin to futures to money to kids and back to futures again...if this is the kinda conversations you furry friends have all the time...im in.. :)

Now that the obligatories are done...let's move on...
