Holiday is over!!!

What in the world could this man be taking a photo of that is more interesting than what is happening behind him???

.............................................................

Am back in the land of smoking volcanoes and unreliable planes. Yes I did get stuck in Port Moresby and after a 2 a.m. start this morning, I arrived home an hour before I had to be at work - groan!!! As usual I need a week to recover from my holiday.

Thanks for all your visits while I was away. I will pop in and say hi as soon as I can - which means after I get a good night's sleep!!!

I see you have come back to life like the volcanoes in your area. Any man who touches a hot stove is going to get burned. Maybe the man is drunk on honey do as in, "Honey do this for me."

Hello and welcome home. I was very happy to discover blog whilst looking for pictures about Queen Emma. I am an old Rabaul resident -1970-1973. We left when I was 11. I am still coming to terms with the loss of everywhere I lived and went in Rabaul, esdpecially the old airport which sold the best bubble gum in the world! The golden part of my childhood now lies under tonnes of ash. Asides of google, your blog and the photos you have posted of old Rabaul have been the best medicine I could find for the ache in my heart. I guess that sounds melodramatic especially when you guys now have to live with ash all the time but incredibly this has been my reaction to this disaster. Thankyou for sharing your photos and thoughts with us. If you ever go up around the old Vesters St compound with you camera could you please take a photo for me, especially the right hand bottom corner looking towards North Daughter. If you can't do not feel bad. I will continue to enjoy your blog and thankyou again for a little peace. Cherrie

Welcome back, Jules! I hope you had a wonderful vacation—though yes, I can understand why you'd need a rest after it too. ;)

I don't think I can stand near a smoking volcano—I'd be too terrified.

Great; you're back home, Jules. A big welcome home !

You have been missed by us all. Returning home is a sort of syndrome that disorients one. But no matter, we can't wait to see what mischief awaits !

Yaay! Jules is back!
Welcome home!
Given the choice between photographing an active volcano and you I think I'd agree with that guy and ignore the volcano. Hee hee.

Perhaps he was asking the same question about you!

I’m glad you had a nice holiday and glad you arrived back in the land of sun and volcanoes. Sorry about the unreliable planes. I hope you transition back to work is not too painful.

hi my blog starts on june 29 when i was in a cage at an adoption fair.

the sad part of the story is, i am still the only animal that got adopted from that whole fair! the rest are still living in cages, 3 weeks later. i'm going to try and document my whole life, even vet trips.

edward said...

oh and Jules, make sure you are taking your vitamins, too. and keep getting good sleep.
