My Avalon

Autumn dawn over Yeo by Ann O'Dyne.
No husband, no partner, no kids,
I'm Queen Guinevere (on the skids).

No wheels, and no home, this region I roam,
It's not good, it's not bad,
It's just different.

  1. Now I have to look up Yeo.

  2. Hi Andrew - there is only one road through Yeo and if I stayed on it I would finish at Apollo Bay 60kms South. In the photo above, which is the East, Birregurra is over the horizon, Colac is 12 kms west of here. The HouseOwner goes to France for the winter every year, and 2 winters back, I shared this place with brave Pants. Gosh we had fun!

  4. dear JahTeh - the chickens thank you for your interest. They are terrorised by magpies, and hide when they hear them. Today there were several pairs of those Gang Gang cockatoos in the really big tree and they didn't like that either.
    Their coop is now full of the most sweet smelling hay courtesy of my friend Sandra. They are cossetted.

  5. Oh gorgeous. Lucky chickens. Lucky you. I got a double-yolker this morning from Larrikin's End egg, but we expect that level of mutation here.

  7. I am home sick today and would far rather be where you are. All I can see from my window is someone else's house.

  8. You have to watch out for the rabbits, though. To paraphrase Monty Python and the Holy Grail (in keeping with the Avalon theme, of course) "That's nae ordinary rabbit. That's tha most evil, vicious, fiendish bunny from Hell, is thart!"

  9. And just in case that's a bit obscure, here's a link to cut and paste...

  11. No home you say, may I disagree.
    Home is where the heart is free.
    No husband partner or kids well met
    But a wide soft sky at sunset
    And a free heart, mind and soul
    Speaks to me of a life thats whole...

  12. "No wheels, and no home, this region I roam,
    It's not good, it's not bad,
    It's just different."

    I just arrived, so I might as well not waste about getting started with criticizing. I mean, is it me, or does that last line just absolutely scream, "RHYME ME!!!""

    How about: "It's an old corn pone," or "I just lost my thong," or even "I scream and I moan." If none of these work, maybe "E.T. phone home."

  13. Uh, the word "time" should have followed the word "waste" in the first line of what I just wrote. I point this out to forestall any possibility of criticism--I'm very sensitive, you know.

  14. The last line reminds me of....something....

  15. Yeah, I heard about the bottles that had to removed when you and Pants stayed there. :-P
