Hot Rod Show


 Brent's truck on left and our late friend Ned's truck on the right. Brent did a lot of the engineering on Ned's truck, It was a tad emotional knowing Neddy was not with us, but fantastic that his family entered the truck. They had his truck spick and span just as he would have wanted it.

Photo of Brent taking Ned for his last ride in his truck.



 Ned's truck is a 1948 F3
Brent's truck is a 1951 Ford F1
The tow truck is the 1969 F100

Photos from LJD Photographix

My old flatmate next to his car was featured in  Stuff News here is the link. 


Brent asked me if I knew what this car was. Like I would know - really?
I was gobsmacked when he told me it was my wedding car...
But its not shiny and has some rust! Not how I remembered it.
Brent reminded me that was 30 years ago this coming October.... so I suppose it can be not as shiny. I'll have to dig out a photo of it to share as my wedding car.

Farm Stay Guests....

 None of the cats were awake when I did the morning walk in the paddocks to check on lambs. I suppose they are all on holiday and allowed to sleep in.

Haven't I got a great life!

Hot Rod Show

 The boys have been polishing the Pick up Truck getting it all ready for the Hot Rod Show tomorrow.

 Here is the flyer if you are in the area,
If you go do say hi!

 The very first plum bossom opened today. - It made me rather happy to see it,

Farm Stay Guests...

 Pancho and I having a wee play. Indigo is in the run behind having her dinner,

 Bet she doesn't lick her lips quite like that at home.

 Minka is covered in yellow pine pollen - thankfully it doesn't show up in the photo. Not much you can do about it when the pollen lands on the concrete and Minka rolls and rolls herself in it.


Awwww Bella and Leonardo being best mates.

Wagging School


I've the best friends!
One of them phoned today and said "WANNA WAG?"
Totally!
So off we went for a cuppa.
So nice to get out and away from the school books!

She shared the above video with me and we laughed and laughed so hard our tummies hurt and we had tears falling down our face. We must of looked quite mad!

While we were in Fonterra Kapiti (BEST kept secret on the coast!) I never knew that they had a factory shop that you can walk in and get fantastic priced cheese. Anyway while we were in there a man from Tuatara Brewery was buying cheeses for their cheese and beer sampling boards.
Well us girls just had to play the video to him thinking we had just found a fun addition to their beers. He was ahead of us girls and had already seen the video.
Of course us girls had a stop at the Tuatara Brewery and buy our men folk some beer.
Aren't we good wifes?

Farm Stay Guests....

Pancho comes with coolest gear. A Sleepypod which converts from a carrier to a sleeper and also as a carseat.

Go figure! Bella and Leonardo can choose to sleep inside in the igloo... but they have been camping outside in the log cabin. I put a hottie in both beds so they can choose.



Leonardo being a tad bashful - No I'm not telling the truth.. he is just too fast moving for the camera.

Indigo having a wash after her dinner. I think her family are going to be surprised as she has been on wet food only while staying and tucking into it.... but then she might go home and not eat what is offered. Cats like to do that sometimes.

Phew I just snapped a shot of Minka before she jumped down. Minka is also camping outside in the log cabin and loves being outdoors. It's raining tonight so she will be snuggled up with her blankets and hotties.
