I thought today is as good a day as any to honour our furry companions.Pets are fantastic. They are always happy to see us,never judge,make us laugh and sometimes sadly make us cry. They care not about politics,terrorists,the economy or the state of the world,they care about us. Sometimes we may get angry with them, they never do when we do far stupider things than their little mistakes . They keep us company, comfort us when we are feeling blue and share in our joy when we are happy.
Our furry friends as you know are loved by both of us and they give back soo much more than we give to them
Starting with Ned The Boss
Neddy is the best natured dog I know. Never complains ,never demands Is quite happy to sleep and eat Chicken sticks
SYD on the other hand
Is the happy energizer dog. If he could find someone that would throw balls to him all day he would be in Heaven. Loves his mum
The feline part of our family consists of KIRRA
Our 14 year old ginger and white girl who is having a little trouble with her thyroid at the moment. Used to beat up syd all the time but loves Neddy.
Phoebe is our quiet one who sleeps and eats, and that’s about it. I almost Killed Phoebe when she was about 2 by running her over. Luckily she moved just enough and her tail was the only part of her damage. Sadly she had to have about a quarter of her tail removed. Not sure if she and the OH. have forgiven me yet..
WE also have about 15 goldfish ,assorted lizards,,birds and other wildlife that have been deemed unable to feed themselves naturally that OH has adopted.
So Cheers to our furry and other friends.
Post a pic of your Pets past and present Give them the fame they deserve. Email either my self or Fiona if you are having troubles posting and we will gladly do it for you.Enjoy
180 thoughts on “FURRY( or not) FRIEND’S FRIDAY”
I read a link early today to an SMH piece on a list of Australia’s 56 richest people paying no tax. Haven’t been able to find it since either at SMH site, Twitter, or The Pub.
If anyone has the link, could you please run it.
I was very surprised to see Bilbo ‘over the road’ going in so hard on Friday. Pleasantly surprised though.
Check in your history, but open a new tab first, you should find the link there.
That seems to be the general view of the media, although if I read Andrew Elder right, he doesn’t seem to agree, which would be one of the very rare times I disagree with him.
From earlier this year this article sounds close,
“Fifty-five of Australia’s highest earners paid no income tax at all during 2012-13, not even the Medicare levy.
All earning at least $1 million, they managed to write their taxable incomes down to below the $18,200 tax-free threshold,”
I read Elder differently. It looked to me like a very strong criticism of the meeja shills’ handling of the timing and their handling of the content. There have been some who have taken Bilbo’s and PvO’s line but Elder called out those who did not and they are legion.
Thanks, KK, I think that’s the one. I was hoping they might be named and shamed, but no such luck.
The millionaire tax dodgers can’t be named and shamed, at least, not as long as this corrupt government lasts. They are protected on the most ridiculous of grounds.
Remember this? The ‘Saving Gina from kidnapping’ proposal?
Australian tax laws to be introduced to combat kidnappings
Coalition says kidnap risk means wealthy need tax reporting exemptions
Abbott government wants to exempt 1,000 private companies from tax transparency measures, partly because of claims of abduction threats
The bill passed both houses and became law on 15 October.
Why hasn’t this radicalised, highly dangerous individual been visited in the dead of night by a couple of hundred police officers accompanied by a throng of armed militia from Border Farce and the AFP? Why has he not been arrested and charged with inciting terrorist acts? Why haven’t all those weapons been confiscated under the provisions of the Crimes Act? Aren’t all those anti-terrorism laws supposed to protect us from idiots like this?
If a huge police force can raid homes in the middle of the night, make meaningless arrests and confiscate only a plastic decorative sword as ‘evidence’ then why is this armed nutter still able to accumulate an arsenal of real weapons?
Is he tolerated and allowed to carry on preaching hatred and inciting violence because that suits the government’s agenda? Is it because this person is white and allegedly Christian, rather than brown and Muslim?
Gun-toting anti-Muslim ‘crusader’ at lead of United Patriots Front
Because he was not in the possession of a plastic sword ? 😦
As I said, I probably read it wrong, missed the point he was trying to make.
I think you’ve answered your own questions there, and of course as Kaffee said, if he had a plastic sword it would be different.
Gravel & Leone,
Another possibility is that this individual’s beliefs are similar to those the leaders of the AFP and the Farce (and, of course, their political masters) – just a bit further ‘out there’ . . . ?
Back from two weeks in Tasmania.
Good to see The Pub
Did you have a lovely time in Mania?
This little black duck
Welcomes back from ‘Anthony van Diemen’s Land’ . Highlights of your trip ?
Lucky you. I’d love a few weeks in Tasamania. It’s been a few decades since I was last there
Two of the highlights. Sailing up the Gordon from Macquarie Harbour. Bussing through, walking through the Tarkine and sailing through it down Pieman River.
Macquarie Harbour, the Tarkine, and one of my favourite books:
Tassie is a great place to live, and if you can’t live there, to have a holiday. Nice to see you back at The Pub, your absence was noticed by many.
Oh, and they have some of the best white wines in Australia.

I see Waffles did for the last two weeks what he did since The Ascension: talking heaps and doing nothing.
ABC TV news showing Mesma stroking a pig.
Can’t imagine why i thought of
Bananas stroking a pig – probably checking to see if its skin would make a nice bespoke handbag.
If only . . .
Another has-been who should have kept his trap shut
How will Dutton handle this?
Kurdish refugee dead on Christmas Island: another victim of long term detention
Dutton doesn’t talk about on-island / operational matters.
Our so-humane Sprout?
And tomorrow’s Pat Campbell
And the picture
I think the AFR got it right
I’m sure The So-Humane Sprout is terribly terribly upset.
Came across this pic a day or so back and thought of your “goodnight owl” series.
Well – US-style health system, here we come. Not a surprise.
Radical reforms to health insurance flagged by Turnbull Government
Waffles will say “It’s not my decision …” and then waffle some more.
I wish you all the best for your surgery tomorrow – I hope your dermatologist shows no mercy and tracks down every last one of those pestiferous BCC cells.
Given the wonders of modern surgery, you should be fine very soon – in almost every way.
However, just be warned, your recovery will take a little time, and may perhaps be more painful than you expect, given the innervation around the mouth, because it takes all those severed nerves some time to regrow and reconnect and it is painful (speaking from spider-bitten finger experience).
FYI, here is a handy little guide – feeling is on the left side of the pic, movement on the right.
I’m watching Genius on SBS.
This episode is about the space race.
Wonderful about the science but it’s a crappy American jingoistic production. It even has Russians politicians speaking English at their conference table.
