Holiday Fun


The local children go back to school on Monday.


So they are making the most of the last few days of their holidays.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It has taken all day to get this post up but I have finally made it.

Downloading your comments' pages and then trying to upload my comments is impossible so I won’t visit today but will try again tomorrow!!! It is all VERY trying believe me!!!

My Vietnam Blog is on hold until the phone lines are better.

Wowee,Jules.
I don't remember school holidays being anything like that.
Or even adult holidays.
I have SO got to get to the tropics before I die.

It is sure worth it to be able to see what you have taken photos of.

Beautiful natural pictures Jules..
Sorry to hear about all this 'Line Trouble' it makes your visits that more specail you know.

XX Tom Jane and Big Peter.

Marcel said...

I love the photos too. Good luck with the phone lines.

Jackie said...

Those are great pictures - those kids look like they're really enjoying themselves.

Sorry to hear about the trouble with the phone lines. I've been getting irritated trying to upload photos to flickr, and I'm on broadband, I can't imagine relying on decent dial-up never mind cranky dial-up! Hope it improves soon.

Thanks for your congratulations - I have put a wedding pic up on my Random page for people who are interested :)

Jules, I hope your phone line woes will get better and that you will get high speed internet soon. Don't these people know that you have a blog to publish! ;-)

These children are absolutely adorable. As we say in Jamaica, "dem free paper bun!"

Translation : their free papers/holidays will soon be burned/over as they have school on Monday.

Jules, make it one more "Make My Day Award Tag." I had just posted by blog and was stopping by to tell you that you were tagged by me when I saw you had already got a collection. All very worthwhile. Your work is well appreciated and of the highest quality. Congrats

Hi All
Just to let you know phones are down here - can't ring Port Moresby or Australia or Timbuktu. Have managed to get a snail line out thru the Kokopo server here but not able to visit and may not be able to post tomorrow.

Neva said...

Poor baby...I feel your frustration with the phone lines....how's the hair holding up? I hope it gets easier...love the blonde hair on the kids....very sweet.

The wait for your pictures is well worth it. Your blogspot is one of my favorites!!

Jules said...

Thiên said...

Jules, I am so enjoying this blog as well. Especially these shots of the children. They are wonderful! Good luck with your connection. I understand the frustration you must feel. We were on dial-up before this current setup and posting was nearly impossible at home. I'm thinking of you...take care.

slim said...

Wow! The faces . . . the innocence . . . the children . . . great capture.

Jules - - - I always take something wonderful away from your posts. Clueless & I join many others in giving you yet another "Make my Day Award" which we were happy to receive from b.c.

Jilly said...

These portraits are just brilliant. Love them all but especially the first one.
