AussieAl: ...and you still would have beat me, Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: 10:34 - but I spent ages studying it before I started - I could see it was going to be a tough one so needed to figure out a couple of numbers - if I'd just jumped in it might have taken me at least twice as long Emoticon emoticon-18

RB2sMom: Here is a view we have not seen in awhile Chat image
AussieAl: It's worth preserving.
vanislander: We've been busy staining our patio furniture - I like the wooden furniture but it's a lot of work
AussieAl: Except your heart? Emoticon emoticon-62
vanislander: Though he didn't steal anything
vanislander: Yes he probably learned that
AussieAl: A good thief always wipes his boots, Emoticon emoticon-62.
vanislander: He thinks I have super powers - I once knew he'd locked himself out of the house - then found a way in ... but his dirty footprint on the dressing table under the bedroom window gave him away - he'd climbed up and got in through the open bedroom window Emoticon emoticon-61
AussieAl: Thanks. I'm afraid it's taking over here, like so many Americanisms.
vanislander: I did that for you!
AussieAl: I'm glad that you called it a mobile phone, and not a cell phone.
vanislander: is there an echo in here? Emoticon emoticon-49
AussieAl: ...and there it was?
vanislander: And it must've flown out of his pocket and landed in the grass at the foot of the wall. and there it was!
vanislander: When we got to a tall-ish wall I remembered what he'd done yesterday - jumped up to take a peek over!
vanislander: When he'd searched the house for it I said he must've lost it when we walked to mailbox - so I suggested we retraced our steps this afternoon
AussieAl: Joh can find anything, even a tool that I might have last used a decade ago Emoticon emoticon-62.
AussieAl: Aha, the woman's touch strikes again.
vanislander: He lost his mobile phone yesterday - and I found it today
vanislander: The gardener is being careful and grateful at the moment
AussieAl: I thought the gardener might be interested, but I can't seem to copy the link.
AussieAl: There was an article in today's paper about the history of camellias in Sydney.
vanislander: Darn - you caught it before I had time to edit
vanislander: ooops - I made & corrected a typo - tears of laughter here - gardener wants to know what's so fnny Emoticon emoticon-62
AussieAl: Teats? Emoticon emoticon-28
vanislander: C'mon - 1994 was only a few years
ago ... wasn't* it?
AussieAl: You're showing your age, Van. Emoticon emoticon-62

It has been a long time since we started as Backyard Galah Cam back in 2010. We have made many friends and seen people come and go, some people who have passed away are dearly missed but are remembered in our hearts, as ever. We realised last year that it was time for the next chapter to our story and that was to create something fresh and exciting, but due to life taking hold we weren’t able to get to work on it.
