Big Dog

I guess it is a problem living next door to a camping site.


  1. I love to analyse handwriting.

    aged <45

    Once, 'running writing' changed from cursive to modified-cursive I think it was all down-hill from there.

  2. Very amusing Julie and you are probably spot on.

  3. Those E's. Are they characteristic of any school script or state? Certainly not Qld.

  4. Somebody might take the dog. The writing isn't too bad. The first part is all lower case and the second part all upper case. Some people mix it all up in one word. The E's are unusual like in fruit shop signs.

  5. The Es like that, to the best of my knowledge, are not school induced but an affectation. They came into some forms of writing about the time that the dot on an i become an enclosed circle.

    From memory it was about two or three 'generations' after I left high school, a generation being about 7 years. I would put in sometime during the '70s. It was only done by young females, but of course, they are older women now.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
