Yikes! Its flooding again.

Our town is in flood, for the second time this year.
I took a heap of pics to show you but on the wrong setting :( however, my friend Anne gave me these first few pics to use, then my friend Suzy the last few. Thanks girls!
This river in flood time is the second fastest flowing river in the world. The first is the Mississippi.

This gorgeous old factory has been turned into a furniture store. My friend Suzy Baines gave me these pics below to show the water going inside the shop. They worked for hours to raise all their goods out of flood reach and they were succesful..they didn't lose any of their stock.

Can you imagine the cleaning up that will have to happen?

This picture Suzy took just up the road from the factory.

The Kempsey Show

First of all let me tell you that I am sorry I have not blogged for a while. I have been too sick, but looking at your blogs has been a great comfort for me and I have tried to keep up with my comments. If I have missed you I am sorry, but I have a date for my operation now, which is June 4 and so then I will be back as soon as I can and back into blogging, which I love to do.

The Kempsey Show was a great event and though I was sick I took my grandchildren and was able to get some pics. Enjoy!

Savannah won first place for her arrangement, by the time I took the pics it had wilted a little. This is her work, and she was so proud.

See Liams little potato animal taking a peep around!

They both just loved the baby animals
