8/22/09 - Powerline Road and Forest North of Saddle Road, 20 Mile Area

The forecast misled me today. It looked like a dry forecast, and I thought that I was going to FINALLY get to attempt to cross the 1984 lava to the big forest beyond. I was excited! Unfortunately the low chance of precipitation actually meant fog and blowing mist instead of dry. It doesn't count as precipitation in the forecast if you're actually inside the cloud. :/ Well, it did get me up nice and early - I started down Powerline Road just after 6AM dawn. I also learned that for the real...

In Croydon

Posted Saturday 22nd August 2009 at 07:21 by Francis Duggan
An overcast cool day in Croydon with only a slight freshening breeze
And songbirds are chirping and singing on the garden bushes and trees
'Tis said that when birds sing in Summer that rain is never far away
Perhaps 'twill be raining tomorrow if not even later today,
The blackbirds and magpies and mynas are singing on the trees on either side of the street
And children playing games in the Parkland race up and down in their bare feet,
Sun tanned from the...

In Mountleader

Posted Saturday 22nd August 2009 at 07:17 by Francis Duggan
Bare trees of December are soughing in the wind far north in Mountleader tonight
And countless stars shine in the wintery sky And the old fields pale in the moonlight
And the fox's wild cry not hard to recognize in a high field in Carriglea height
The cattle in sheds for the cold Winter months and the old fields seem empty and quiet,
In bare woods of Mountleader at this time of the year few birds bother to chirp and sing
Some old birds the cold Winter may not survive...

In Memory Of Strider

When his dog Strider he did have put down it was such a sad day for Paul
Faithful till the end he was such a good mate and till his own end he'll recall
The fawn bull terrier cross staffy his friend for many years but every thing comes to an end
Though the love of one's dog is an unconditional love your dog surely is your best friend.

'Twas Genevieve told me Strider was deceased her eyes they were flooded with tears
With her border collie him she often...

City Pigeons

Posted Saturday 22nd August 2009 at 07:09 by Francis Duggan
Around my boots where I am sitting crumbs of bread they happily eat
The cheeky and colourful City pigeons so at home on the city street
Their cousins the rock pigeons of the Northlands in Town would feel so out of place
They once were the very same species though now quite a different race.

Introduced by humans to cities all around the World in busy towns they feel at home
Beyond the borders of suburbia the city pigeons seldom do roam
They build...
