Olympics Fever ....

I'm on the starting block, ready to launch myself at my bowl.
Gold medal effort, for sure.
Maybe they'll introduce this for Rio in 2016

AFL Round 18 ....

It's a home game for us at Docklands Stadium today.
We're playing the Western Bulldogs.
It's a proper winter day here, so I'm happy that the roof will be over.

I'm confident we can do well, and have my flag ready for lots of waving.
I'm not sure if a win will get us back into the 8.... but maybe it will!
I am hyped and ready for action.
All together now ...
GO SAINTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Missing in Action ....

Have you missed me?
My human did a very, very, very silly thing and broke the sprong off the computer charger.
It was an accident, but we are still waiting for the replacement part.

In the meantime, I've been doing a bit of serious bird-watching from inside.

The Mandarin Bag ....

Well, I got up close and personal with the bag the mandarins came in today.
I think this veiled 'look' gives me an aura of mystique.

Kinda like this, but better.

AFL Round 17 ....

As we head towards the pointy end of the season, every game counts.
Today we play the Sydney Swans (for the second time this year).
This time it's an 'away' match for us, and it's pretty important that we come out
on top if we want to make it to the finals.

I don't know if I can watch it.
Too nerve wracking.
(And the vet did say I may have developed a heart murmur).

Surfing & Research ....

I have been a little slack over the last few days,
but I'm back today on my blog.

Just doing a little research on tomorrow's game.
Saints v Sydney - in Sydney.
I can't look.

Budgie v Kitten ....

I found these pictures and just had to share.

Face off.

A little to the left.
Thank you.

Feeling Good ....

Feeling & looking good.
Hardly even sneezing today!
Relaxed = me.  Just the way I like it.

AFL Round 16 ....

Well, I know we had an excellent (and not much expected) win last week,
so sometimes that means things wont go so well the next.
Saints are playing the Lions in Brisbane.
A win will be harder than it seems, if Brisbane have decided to play.
The Lions have been very erratic this year, and I think their team is better
than their position on the ladder shows.

So I've got my training guernsey out and will be on the phone to Scott Watters
with my number 1 training tip.
# Kick straight.
(It worked for us last week!)

Kitten Kong ....

Well, here I am, right in your face.
About to take on the world.
Do you remember the TV show 'The Goodies'?
and Kitten Kong?

I wanna do that when I grow up.
(Or is it too late?  Never!!)

Flowering in Winter ....

How amazing, this flower popped out of a somewhat straggly looking succulent this week.
It seems to like the cold, rainy weather!
(Apparently it was the coldest morning in many years the other day).
I say 'brrrr', the succulent says 'yummy!'
At least it won't be fighting me for front row heater position.

Sneezy ....

I've been sneezing a bit (and snoring quite loudly) lately,
so when last night I was also walking a bit sideways,
my humans got worried and took me to the vet today.

One of the attendants commented on how handsome I am.
They also expressed how fit I look for my age.
AND I've put on weight.

(Flattery will get you everywhere and anywhere with me ;))

Draught Horse Memorial ....

In a town called Nhill, there is a memorial to the draught horse in their main street.

You go through Nhill on the way from Melbourne to Adelaide, (or vice versa).
Some other road trip photos:


Taken out the window - we were going reasonably fast ;)
Kinda like this one though.

AFL Round 15 ....

Well, it's time to play our nemesis.
Even several years ago, when we hadn't lost a game all season ... they did us.
Saints v Bombers.
Even their colours are similar.
The good news is it is sunny here today, (although that could change any second).
So I've got my t shirt out and will concentrate on positive thinking.
Despite the history, I know we can come good.

Fun With Paper Bags ....

I'm looking a little worried because I feel I may be separated prematurely from my new paper bag.

Here's a close up of the big hole I chewed into it.
It was great fun!!

Yay!!  I was allowed to sit on it as long as I liked.
I recommend paper bags for:
sleeping on
making crinkly noises to annoy humans
Just the best for anyone who enjoys any or all of the above.

The Lemon ....

An update on the lemon growing on the tree on my balcony ....
After possibly the longest gestation period in history, it is finally turning yellow.
I can't say how excited I am!!!!
It is the only bud ever to get this far, and has been working towards this peak since 
September 2011.
Hopefully it will be ready to pick by the end of the month.
