Australia Day


Gid'ay friends

We usually have a barbie with snags. For those of you who don't know our Aussie slang that means a barbecue with sausages. If some other friends pop by it is no trouble to put another snag on the barbie.
Well I'm an Aussie kid, so I needed to wear my Aussie hat to keep the sun and the smoke out of my eyes.
Granny keeps telling me to be careful and not to burn myself. Barbecue's can get very hot. 
I am very lucky to be an Aussie kid. I think Australia is the best place in the world. (Well I have only been to America for our camp, and that was loads of fun, and I really enjoyed it, but it was so good to get home.)
Another thing we always eat on Australia day is Lamingtons. They are very yummy, it is cake cut into squares, then they are dropped into Chocolate incing and rolled in cocoa-nut. Yum OH!
People go for picnics; Go to the cricket or the beach. All Granny's Grand kids had been to the beach all week. They swam and Boogie Boarded the waves and had the best time.
 I'm sure we all feel like our country is the best place to be. Granny says that is usually because it is where our family is, and all those we love.  Some times it is because we don't know what other places are like. If you are like me, it is because my comfy bed is here and there is honey in the pantry, and My Granny lives here.

Some times it is just because!!!!!


It's been a busy day with all that cooking so I'm about to have toast and peanut butter with honey  on.
A glass of warm milk and jump into my bed that is comfy.

See you all next week.


Welcome Julianna. Julianna makes the most wonderful cloth dolls and teddies . She lives in Novosibirsk.
Take a look at her link.

My thought for the day:
"Living would be easier if men showed as much patience at home as they do when they're fishing."


  1. It looks like you had fantastic Australia Day! It's still Winter here, sleet, snow, flooding, and so on. A bit of 'Summer' would go down nicely right now! xx

  2. Hi Wilbur,

    Happy Australia Day. I love your country since you told me all about it at summer camp last year. But everybear was in awe of your fishing skills and of course - tree climbing.

    Tell Granny we all send our love 'n hugs.

  3. Happy sausage day Wilbur and Granny.....I would love to share a lamington with you both soon...xx

  4. Hi Wilbur,
    Happy Australia Day!! Our mom and her mom always wanted to visit your country. Maybe for the snag on the barbie. Or maybe they wanted to try the Lamingtons. Our bet is on the Lamingtons. You look good in your Aussie hat. Tell granny we said hi.

  5. Happy Australia Day to you, dear Aussie Kid. We're a little bit jealous about your "barbie" - we're far away from that kind of fun around here (LOL). And so funny to learn about Aussie slang and this picture with the greeting sausages... eh... sorry... the snags was great. You're very good at BBQing! ;O)

  7. Happy Australia day to you Wilbur and Kay - have fun.
    We are enjoying Auckland Anniversary over here and I should be doing some work around the house but just stopped by to say hello.


  8. Hi Wilbur,I am so pleased you enjoyed Australia Day. Yes we are very lucky to live in such a wonderful country. We went for a drive to the beach and sat and had ice cream.Thank you for visiting me. xx

  9. Home is where the heart is!!!! (and your own bed) Have a happy Australian day !!!!
    I am a little bit jealous about the australian weather, in Holland its freezing en snowing.....

  10. I can fully understand why you don't want to leave home ... comfy bed, honey in the pantry Granny at home..... I'd stay right where you are.

  11. Hi Wilbur,

    Thanks for the great explanation of Australia Day and for letting us in on all the particulars of the food. The bears here suggested we celebrate as well so we can be supportive of your very lovely down under land. The thing is I think they are hoping I'll agree more for the food than for the sentiment. Happy Australia Day to you and all your buddies there - especially Granny!
