Richie have you heard of the Cape York Peninsula? Beautiful part of Australia which was featured in Bush Tucker Man. Also have you ever been to the outback? It fascinates me how big Australia is and that some parts are unspoilt.
Jessica have you heard of the White Cliffs of Dover. Of course I have heard of Cape York you duffer :p . We were supposed to be building a Space Port there a decade or so ago. Never saw the lite of day that proposal. Yes much of the centre of The Great Southern Land is unspoilt and uninhabited.. at least by white Australians. Tho there are still small pockets of nomadic indigenous people I understand. I keep waiting for some wealthy entrepreneur to build massive water pipes from the coast or the Top End to irrigate then populate the Red Centre. The Arabs did it.

πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† What does duffer mean? πŸ€ͺ

I've also heard of the Top End, Bush Tucker Man has taught me a lot. He's very friendly with aboriginals, who now live in small communities but still go into the bush and live off the land. Very intelligent people they are, they have rescued many white man who got lost in the bush, I'd love to spend time with them πŸ€—
It would become overpopulated if that happened, but maybe one day it will happen.

It's a shame that Dobermans can die young. Boxer dogs have trouble breathing with the way their noses and mouths are, they don't have a very long life expectancy, although I've seen a few older looking ones on my rounds.
It's a disgrace and, thus, says a lot about people that, apparently, there is demand for boxer dogs to be bred in this way.😟

Duffer is a pleasant way of saying someone is silly or forgetful.
Australia is massively unpopulated at present. Some 80% of us live on the coastal fringes.
Vet said Bubbles recovery has been "amazing". He is even trying to go down the three stairs of our patio. No way Jose.. His legs still lack the strength needed. I have now brung my second jab forward by a month to next Tuesday. You two now fully vaxed?

That's really good news on Bubbles at least.
Yes, I got my second jab on 22 June, three weeks after the first one. Meanwhile, I'd have been fully vaxed with my favourite vaccine even without my daughter's help. The battle is now on against the skeptics who don't want to get vaxed. At some places they get a bonus like money or a free sausage πŸ˜†if they agree to getting vaxed. The talk is now about a third booster jab for the most vulnerable again. Mobile vax teams are going to replace vaccination centres. Most infections are now among the younger (aged 18-40) and young families. The big question mark is what's gonna happen in autumn and winter and in schools since pupils can't generally be vaxed. Plus new mutants emerging.
What about Mrs Richie? Has she changed her mind? No chance with your son, I suppose?

I am a fully vaxed duffer πŸ˜‡
My arm and elbow were a bit sore after the second jab but that's expected.
I still wear my mask, and a few days ago some woman shouted at me 'it's a hoax take off your mask', I ignored her, she wasn't worth taking on πŸ˜†

Fantastic news about Bubbles 😍 that little fella is such a fighter, all the TLC he's had during his life is certainly paying off πŸ™‚

I've heard here that some clubs/pubs/venues will only allow people in who are fully vaxed, so let's see what happens now with our anti vaxxers πŸ˜†

Jessica and Thomas the big wigs in our hospitality industry are trying to convince the experts to do the same here. Makes sense.. reward the sensible people.. Sco Mo now saying that Australia is on track to have 70% fully vaxed by end of October. We started later than you in Europe but now coming home with a wet sail. Good for you still masking up Jessica. Is Boris happy to keep you out of lockdown with your continued steep infection numbers?

Have finally managed to convince her. She will have her second dose next month too. But my son is still digging in his heels by waiting for Novavax as he does not trust the messenger RNA vaccines. I keep telling him being vaxed is better than not being. He tells me he is being very careful. Follows restriction rules inside and outside.

Happy Birthday to me..Happy Birthday to me....
Too bad, I'm too late now! 😏 I was going to say Happy Birthday to you but you gave the game away. πŸ™‚ I know it is your birthday today because there are people elsewhere in the world who wish you a happy day without you noticing. (?)πŸŽ‰πŸŽπŸŽ‚ Hope you had an enjoyable day with yours.

I've lost track of bumbling BoJo πŸ€”
He seems to contradict himself which is very confusing. I'll wear a mask and use hand sanitiser forever no doubt 😷
