August 1 On this day with bum nuts, fillies ready to party and clothes removed

It's been bucketing down here but a veritable heatwave at 10 degrees C while in Dunolly it is a tad cooler at 7 degrees. But they'll likely get heated up after lunch and begin peeling the layers of clothes off.
Winter sun can be such a magnetic drawcard.
Chooks are fed, eggs are found, more vegie seedlings bought, all's right with the world. 

1778 New concept began; a savings bank, opened in Hamberg in Germany.
Stop! Your mattress is perfectly fine!
1791 Matilda, the first of the Third Fleet transport ships, rocked up to Port Jackson with a shipment of 205 human party animals ready to paint the colony red.
1968 Royal Canadian Mint began replacing silver with nickle in Canada's coin except for the silver dollar.  
There goes the whole melting the coins down to make silver bullets to defeat the undead idea, pfft.
1987 The very first NZ Lotto draw was drawn.

Happy Birthday to all the horses.

The Nylex Clock is still busted.

  1. Bum nuts? Are they the ones that come pre-cracked?

  2. I love the cold and rainy weather, but I also like sitting in a secluded spot, out of the wind, absorbing some winter sunshine warmth.
