So the Dam Levels are 5% Higher over the past week.

Water Restrictions remain the same at Level 3, Mainly Watering cans for gardens and *trigger hoses for cars which replaced buckets (pails)as many as it took to do the job. The intelligencia who created the former rules, who have serfs to wash their Govt Limosines, have bowed to pressure from car washers such as my wife who found it difficult to hoist a pail of water to the car roof.
Our four hour drive down the coast on Friday may have been easier if we had used the boat instead of the car, Non stop belting down with rain all the way down and 95% of the way back on Sunday. However, it was nice to visit our #2 son at his 10 acre waterfront property (With room for a pony, true)and of course the flora and fauna, visiting Roos and other misc wildlife and the occasionally sighting of waccy baccy.
Yesterday we had a smidgin of sunshine(ten minutes) today since Midnight no rain but completely overcast, the temp steady on 18 f, so I was reading is the ideal Temp for daytime Boudoir activity, If you are into that sort of malarky.
I will be meeting an old shipmate at the club tomorrow Wednesday and sadly another of our associaion members crossed the bar over the weekend, Rosemary and I will be attending the funeral on Thursday. We are down to nine from the Aus members, I head the list(Alphabetically) of the remaining members, brings shivers, but I aintagoing yet mate. Everyone stay healthy and be nice to your loved ones.

I've been watching the big rain bands lying across Aus weather maps on TV tonight. You guys are having it tough over there at the moment. Stay well and hang in there.

Aggie: Soon after Ten pm last night the rain came again, it finished before seven this morning when I arose from slumbers to watch the W/I v Poms cricket test.
According to the various devices in the garden 1.5" or 30 mls fell.
Yes, it does seem that Oz is doing it tough, what with B/fires floods drought the recession and me to add to the woes of bloggers.
Have a wonderful day, X.

> 'G'day, mind if I talk to your dog?'
> Villager: 'The dog doesn't talk, you stupid Englishman.'
> Ventriloquist: 'Hello dog, how's it going mate?'
> Dog: 'Yeah, doin' all right.'
> Welshman: (look of extreme shock)
> Ventriloquist: 'Is this villager your owner?' (pointing at the Villager)
> Dog: 'Yep'
> Ventriloquist: 'How does he treat you?'
> Dog: 'Yeah, real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food And takes me to the lake once a week to play.'
> Welshman: (look of utter disbelief)
> Ventriloquist: 'Mind if I talk to your horse?'
> Welshman: 'Uh, the horse doesn't talk either...I think.'
> Ventriloquist: 'Hey horse, how's it going?'
> Horse: 'Cool'
> Welshman: (absolutely dumbfounded)
> Ventriloquist: 'Is this your owner?' (Pointing at the villager)
> Horse: 'Yep'
> Ventriloquist: How does he treat you?
> Horse: 'Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly, Brushes me down often and keeps me in the shed to protect me from the Elements.'
> Welshman: (total look of amazement)
> Ventriloquist: 'Mind if I talk to your sheep?'
> Welshman: (in a panic) 'The sheep's a * ***ing liar…'
