Over at Wattletree Road at Malvern there is a little group of terraces each with its name above. My favourite is Wait-a-bit. Don't you think that is a charming name? It conjures up ideas of welcome, have a cup of tea, take a load off your feet. And then I think of other things like patience, take time out, and wait-a-bit and all will be well.

Tell me another one....

The blogosphere has been joined by Melbourne storyteller, David Gloster. Read his charming and quirky children's stories here and here. Dave wouldn't mind hearing from illustrators of children's stories. And I would love to see the illustrations generated by Dave's stories. Would a Bunyip called Barbarino look anything like John Travolta!

A swimming roo

I didn't know kangaroos go swimming. But, at least in WA they do. Hamo from backyard missionaries has some beautiful shots of a kangaroo swimming at a Western Australian beach. Simply beautiful. Just one query? Am I right to assume it was a male roo? Thought that, if there was a joey in a mum's pouch, the poor thing might drown.
