Let's start the day with a laugh:

A brunette goes into a doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it.

"Impossible," says the doctor. "Show me."
She takes her finger, presses on her elbow, and screams in agony.
She pushes her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams, and so it goes on; everywhere she touches makes her scream with pain.

The doctor says, "You're not really a brunette are you?"

She says, "No, I dyed my hair. I'm naturally blonde."

"I thought so," he says. "Your finger is broken."

That utterly cracked us all up!  Too funny.
Well, except for Brylee. She didn't think it was funny.  But then... she's a blonde.
So am I ... but I do have a sense of humor!
ABOVE:  Taken yesterday afternoon, before the family left for home.  Trust Brylee to get it out!  She does have little fingers/hands though, so easier for her to get in there and get the job done.
ABOVE:  One down ... one to go. For now.

Well... I think I'm about ready to go ... just have to wait until the kids leave for school.
It's going to be a long day... I plan on taking my time, taking lots of photos.
And I also visit my Aunt and Uncle in Kinloc too.

So... I will be updating along the way... catch you later.


ABOVE: Visiting with my brothers and Dad at the cemetery. They had these cuties for company too.

ABOVE: my old stomping ground as a teenager. Love this lake... we lived a few miles up the road from it. 
Wish I'd thought to pack togs and towel... it was perfect for a swim. 

It's taken me 5 hours to get to Taupo...cos I just spent 1.5 hours in Kinloc with  my Aunt and Uncle.

And I'm just taking me time.

ABOVE: I've been picking up pinecones too.

Well I got here safely. Took me till 6pm to get here.
It rained non stop from Taupo to Palmerston North!  But it was a good trip.

ABOVE: My lovely lake again. My brothers used to climb that bank and jump in. I learnt to waterski on this lake too.

Well that's all for today... catch you tomorrow.
