1 September 2007 19 comments

TO all the Dads out there in Australia and New Zealand celebrating Fathers Day....have a great day tomorrow and spoil yourselves rotten !!!!!!

Father's Day is a secular celebration inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and parenting by males, and to honor and commemorate fathers and forefathers. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving to fathers and family-oriented activities. The gifts given often have slogans such as "World's Best Dad".

    Hi mauigirl, it's nice to meet you. And a big HUG goes to that Renny fella in Norway. I haven't seen much of Renny in a long time.

    Just for the fun and excitement of the contest, the answer to question number 2 is you have painted 3 murals. ^5 goes to Lisa and a hearty thanks for the answer, Girlfriend!

    Lastly, a big hug to all of our friends here at LakeTrees in cluding Mr. LakeTrees, my good ole buddy type pal. ~:o)

    Living in the UK I seem to be out of sync with you but I shall catch up!

  • Kim 3.9.07

  • Anonymous 3.9.07

    Drats, I didn't see you so that I could acknowledge your presence, Bluepanjeet. Please forgive my inattention today.

  • Kim 3.9.07

    where are yer glasses MA?????

  • Sueblimely 4.9.07

    Hi Kim
    I know I answered this question but my browser has been playing up lately so maybe it froze before I sent.
    The answer is 3 - the murals you painted for the Kurri Kurri mural project. I had to look the place up as I don't recall having been there. It is in NSW 145k north of Sydney, in the Hunter Valley, a region that produces wonderful wines.

  • Kim 4.9.07

    good research Sue :)
    I live about 1 hour away from Kurri Kurri......and we spent nearly a year painting the murals...every weekend....
    I've been meaning to take a trip up there to see all the new ones.... hopefully before Christmas !!
    "The Hunter Valley Gardens" is well worth visiting if you are ever up this way.....and of course the vineyards are a must :D
