A Joke

Chicken Surprise
A couple went for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and ordered "Chicken Surprise".  The waiter brought the meal, served in a covered pot.  Suddenly, the pot lid raises a little, and two beady eyes look around before the lid closes.   "Did you see that?"  the wife asked her husband.  Just then it happened again.  Up came the lid, out came two beady eyes, and down went the lid again.   The husband called the waiter over to ask for an explanation.
"Please sir", said the waiter.   "What did you order?" 
"Chicken Surprise" replied the husband.
"AH!  So sorry" said the waiter.  "My mistake.  I bring you Peeking Duck".

Sweet Tooth
The familiar feeling washed over me - raised hairs on the back of my neck, and a pounding heart.  The thought of a filling always affected me this way.  There he was in his white coat, manoeuvring the trolley closer and closer.
"Which do you prefer, Madam", he asked, "strawberry or chocolate filling in your cake?"

Thanks Iggy

Wow, did we have some rain last night!   Thanks to declining cyclone Iggy, we had 87ml from around 4pm yesterday, until sometime early this morning.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I went out to check the rain gauge this morning.   It's ironic, and so unfair, that we should be so desperate for rain, when the east coast (of Australia) is in such a mess from too much rain.

I had to take a photo of the rain gauge, as I've never seen it this full before,
and probably never will again.

A couple of quotes

Did you know?

The average soccer ball is made of 32 leather panels, held together by 642 stitches.

And while we're on soccer, here's an interesting anagram for you. 

Bravo! Victim and a dickhead.

Local Wildlife

We have countless insects around where we live, and although we've been here 10 years, we're always finding something new. 

My husband found this beautiful "Jewel Beetle" a few weeks ago.

Don't blame me for that, I just found it in a puzzle magazine!
