Peace, Peace, peace

I walked around with a gun in my hand

Looking for Peace

Please, please, please

Would someone show me Peace?

I met a boy and I asked him

If he had any Peace

He said, “I only have a little drum for a toy

I play it all the time

It helps the day pass away

But Peace? No, Sir. I haven’t heard of that toy

You might as well go ahead and ask some other boy”

I went ahead with a gun in my hand

Looking for Peace[ pacet et bene]

It’s nice to have a small camera to carry every day.
Not sure that will be true at -20C or in snow drifts, but time will tell.
This kind of intimate landscape photography, […]”

Floral Art Group – Local Show

On one occasion there we all visited the local Show where we stopped in at the Floral Art Tent to view the displays as Philomena and or her group had an entry. If I can unscramble my dating system I believe that this holiday took place between the 8th and the 17th July 2005 which would mean that while winter, the weather in Queensland wouldn’t have been too cold. If you notice in a previous gallery, we are wearing cardigans.
