Caddy greets me!
They left Sydney around 7 pm on Friday and drove down, arriving about 10.30pm - just in time for me to go to bed. Kathleen and Anthony were due to go to a craft fair at the National Convention Centre the following day but Anthony was full of the 'Flu, on antibiotics and had missed the last two days at work.
I could not understand why they even made the trip down from Sydney!
The next morning, over breakfast, Rhonda and I made an assessment of Anthony and we advised that he did not go to Canberra, that he stayed at our home, sat out in the sun and fresh air, kept his fluids up and took regular paracetamol. Rhonda would go with Kathleen to the Craft Fair, making it a girl's outing and the boys stay at home and have a 'time out' day. They accepted that advice.
So, the boys sat out in the sun, under the sun umbrella and chatted - Anthony borrowed three military biographies from me - the girls went to Canberra and the dogs played.

Up around St Clements historical church,
Back through town and on to home.
Kathleen and Rhonda came home so I set up the BBQ - Roast Rack of Lamb and baked vegetables - and sat back with a cool beer and listened to what the girls had to say and gave the dogs some more attention,
Denny wanted some 'time out' from the puppies games, so he sought shelter indoors with Rhonda, who was enjoying a quiet cup of coffee.
The cook did a great job with the BBQ - everyone enjoyed it - So he saluted himself!
and Kathleen convinced Anthony that a new Weber BBQ was on the shopping list!
Its now Sunday afternoon and all visitors have departed and an air of serenity prevails once more over the precinct!
