Poem Thursday No 9

Here we are at Thursday again, I was asked where I have been getting the poems I post on Thursdays, well the are in this book.

Here is this weeks poem.

You call me friend.
But do you realise
How much the name implies...
It means that down the years,
Through sunshine and through tears,
There's always someone standing by your

You call me friend.....
And thus your life and mine
Grow richer in design....
And I would have you know,
Wherever you may go,
There's always someone standing by your

Creature Wednesday/Koala

Hello everyone well here we are at Wednesday again and so that means it is creature day and this weeks creature is not gross but cuddly, it is the koala.

The koala has a stout, tailless body with a large head and round fluffy ears and a spoon shape nose. The can be found on the east coast of Australia in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

They have a gestation period of 30-36days a baby is called a joey the same as a kangaroo, their weigh between 4-15kilos and have a lifespan of 13-18years.

They were first seen by white men in 1798, I wonder what they thought.

They only eat eucalyptus leaves and eat around 1 kilo or 2.5 pounds a day in fact they eat so much of them they often smell of eucalyptus.

Like humans they have fingerprints.

Unlike humans the baby will eat its mum's poo.

Lastly they are not bears

Gross Tuesday No:11

I didn't do a Monday post as I felt like shit all day and spent most of the day in bed, today I am feeling a tad better but have terrible back and chest pain. Of course both yesterday and today I was up at 6am ready for when Leo gets dropped off.

Here are this weeks gross facts we have part two of gross royals.

King Nabonidus of Babylon thought he was a goat and insisted on grazing in a field.

Duke Gian Gastone of Tuscany stayed in a stinking bed for 7 years refusing to get up.

By the time he died at age 55, Henry VIII was covered in boils and so overweight that he couldn't move by himself.

Don Carlos, son of Spanish King Philip II, forced a shoemaker to eat a pair that he considered not up to standard.

Anna of Russia built an ice palace to celebrate the marriage of a prince she did not like. She made the couple stay there on their wedding night.

When they finished building St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, Russian Tsar Ivan the Terrible had the designers blinded, so they could never build anything better.

The week that was No: 11

Well it is Sunday and I have posted the last week that was post, so now I am starting another week that was post.

Another hot day, Kathy arrived around 10ish and wanted 2 soft boiled eggs and an ice cream cone before going over to see dad.

Dad was in bed when we arrived and stayed in bed the whole time we were there. Kathy & Summer went into see him, she said dad didn't know who she was.

Monday saw dad have another fall when he was walking into the kitchen for breakfast. He was ok just took some skin off. Natasha received another parking ticket in the mail for stopping in the mail zone for Leo to jump out and post some letters for me.

Tuesday is another hot day.

Wednesday started out cool and wet but ended up hot and sticky all I did was go to my aqua class.

Thursday was a busier day, Tim and I went out for lunch after which I had a lay down and then it was time to head over to the hospital for my appointment with the neurologist Tom Wellings to get the results to my MRI it was normal and no further action required. I also asked about my headaches he wants me to change one of my medications, this means going down in strength of one medication till I come off it and starting the new one at a low dosage increasing to I reach full strength.

This also means that there will be a time when I become more emotional.

People may remember last December I had a mini breakdown and was super emotional because I had run out of one of my depression medications, well the medication I have to come off is the same medication I had run out of back then.

Friday didn't start out great, it was overcast and wet, Natasha slept in and I dropped and broke a container that held my face powder that used to belong to my great-aunt. I didn't get upset over it because as I said to Tasha getting upset isn't going to change anything or un-break it.

Dad hasn't been great either he had a slight fever and because of the weather dad wasn't able to leave the house.

On Saturday I woke up feeling like shit, Tim had hoped to put up the new shed but it is raining, so not going to happen this weekend.

Hey hey its Saturday No:1

Hey hey its Saturday, yes I am starting a new weekly post and this Saturday I am doing a post about Saturday.

Saturday I either the 6th or 7th day of the week depending oh your way of thinking, I asked a few different people and got a few different answers.

Saturday is the first day of the weekend, it is also the most common day for people to play sport.

Saturday takes its name from Saturn, the Roman God off generation, dissolution, plenty, wealth and well as other stuff.

Some religions consider Saturday the Shabbat or Sabbath it stretches from Friday to sundown Saturday and is the day of rest and Eastern Orthodox churches distinguish between Saturday (Sabbath) and the Lord's Day (Sunday).

A rendezvous
Which two hearts keep
All time, aware
In joy or sorrow
One may come
And find the other

Creature Wednesday/ Komodo Dragon

Hello everyone, it is much cooler here today been a bit wet this morning but fine at the moment, being Wednesday means it is creature day and today's creature is the Komodo Dragon.

Any animal that is called a dragon isn't a shrinking violet, it is a lizard but it is about as close to a dragon as a real live animal can be, it is a slime-drooling, goat- gobbling, man- eating monster.

It is covered in scales with hard knobbly plates on them, this makes their skin hard to bite through. They grow to about 3 metres or 10ft long, they have big jaws and sharp teeth and a dangerous venom that they inject when they bite. It makes prey animals such as goats and deer bleed and collapse, which makes it easier for the slavering dragon gobble up. They swallow huge chunks whole, regurgitating slimy balls of skin and bone.

It is the biggest, roughest,toughest lizard of them all.
