Monday in Canberra

Here is our neighbour’s eighteen-year-old cat, who is TOTALLY blind, almost totally deaf, and yet still climbs all the way up (a fence, and then two flights of stairs) to our back deck on a daily basis, just in case I have some chicken for her.

The Monte Carlo (Monaco) Formula One Grand Prix – the most prestigious event in the whole world of motorsport – is on this weekend. It’s the ten-year anniversary since I first attended that race. I remember it was supposed to be raining all day, but instead it was sunny and hot, and I got a terrible sunburn to match the red dress I had on!

Above is a (rather blurry) picture I took of one of the TV cameras. I’m better with heights more than anyone I know, but I’m pretty sure that would terrify me!

If you watch the race, imagine where your footage is coming from – it’s THAT!

What a bad week for the world. The terror attack in Manchester. Nicky Hayden died, and then Roger Moore died… Russia’s war in Ukraine has escalated again this week – worse than it’s been for six months. And because Trump is such a Putin supporter, Russia is now emboldened to kill so many more… The mass murder of Christians in Egypt. The Islamic extremists in the Philippines. Gorgeous Sri Lanka’s most recent natural disaster (because my family was based in India, I used to travel through there about four times a year). 😦 😦 😦 😦

Also this week: “artist” Jeff Koons has blatantly stolen a Ukrainian artwork, and now his plagiarised sculpture is on display in Rockefeller Center in New York:
