My Travelling Plumber

Do you ever look at something and just wonder, “what the heck is that?” I had that experience today when I was looking through the phone book for a plumber to help me with my drainage issues. I was on page one hundred and thirteen…

Flying Roses

We reached the airport after about an hour of driving on the busy freeway, ready to transport the world’s last flowers back to Melbourne. Veronica took the lead, heading toward the front doors. A security guard stopped us there, then gave me a hard time…
