Pompeii is the day

This is the entrance to our day of nostalgic wonder.

Nostalgic because many of the mementoes we say I recall wondering about as a child.
The photo of Lizzie to my left is typical...I was going to say "Find a computer and there you'll find Lizzie" but I thought better of it.
How about..."Here is Lizzie entering in a competition that would see us in Pompeii!

These nest three photos are taken from a compilation of pictures taken back in the 1930's of indigenous people from up north. Beautiful aren't they!

I spied a green tree frog amongst the moss...

A natural wonder of the world...green rainforest. Becoming a rarity these days.

A childs quilt based on their love for Australia

Windmills of your mind.

A horse is a horse of course, of course...No not Mr. ed but Pharlap!

Typical Melbourne home from back in the 20's 30's or 40's!

Array of bottles on a kitchen shelf

Pacific island kites

Montage again of aboriginality splendiferous

Papuan New Guinea mask

And our farewell...trojan soldiers see us off the premises...
