We Did have some Outings

Over the weeks dodging sun for me we did have some outings.

Laidley Pioneer Museum Australia Day as the Spinners and weavers had been invited to demonstrate.

Fernvale inaugural Colours Fair whee Ipswich Spinners had a stall.

Sue had fun with people of all ages having a go at weaving.

Old Petrie Town for Traditional Trades were again the Spinners and Weavers had a stall.

 Some Luthier Tools and steam/heat wood bender.

 Dorothy on the left one of the spinners learning to use a Lace  shuttle.

Sue had taken the loom along again this is the finished weave again many ages had a turn weaving the youngest 4 oldest 90.

January February and March a couple of Month of Up's and Downs.

Christmas over and done and we had a few visitors on their way Cousin Keith and wife Avis mid January and again late February.

Also friend Dave Dicker from Sydney who came up somewhere in between Keith and Avis visit. It was supposed to an interesting few days one of Toowoomba Swap Meet which was washed out for us but the Sunday at Old Petrie Town was much enjoyed.

I had a case of going through sun cancer treatment a cream application so 3 weeks of not venturing into the sun or near dust so very little time spent in the workshop.
It all seems good for now. Many years of sun and 25yrs of driving not often enough wearing hats or sunscreen.

These photos are mid way through the treatment at its worst point.

 Slowly clearing up.

Its has now cleared up and back to normal with no dry flaky skin.

A Computer problem which after much delving was found to be a WiFi card dying.
So it was removed a new Solid state drive and new 2T drive added need to get a WiFi set up but it will be external this time for print and file sharing.

Days of getting up and down to the floor saw me with muscles letting me know thy had not been used for a while.

Max Gone but Not Forgotten.

January 20th 2018 started badly.

We had been keeping a close eye on Max as it was obviously not enough tho.
After a few months of our beloved Max not being well after a Vet procedure had him under anesthetic to long it appears a snake bite took him from us.  He passed away in Sue's arms.

Thanks for all the years of joy, Rest easy little mate, you were loved by all the family and many others.

These last two photos taken just weeks before he past away
