These are two birdies I drew on the weekend. Their names are Nathan and Randolph. Even though they have bills that are finch like, they are in fact a figment of my imagination! There are no powder blue fat cuties like this in the wild unfortunately. *sigh*!
In other news, I was up at my usual time yesterday morning sipping my coffee and surfing the internet when I heard all these helicopters and light aircraft buzzing around. I racked my brain for some special ocassion that would warrent such activity and nothing presented itself. Then, at the bus stop I heard a woman excitedly tell a friend "Oh yes the Queen Mary is in town!". Whoa! The last time I saw that regal gal I got a crick in my neck looking up at her!
Here she is direct to you from downtown Sydney yesterday morning:
I went down with my Dad to see her after work yesterday afternoon. Boy! She was not hard to spot! According to the Wikipedia entry about her, she is the largest ocean liner ever. She leaves today so I was glad I had a look at her again - she is truly a sight to behold.
I trust everyone's week is progressing in an orderly manner!
