One of the things I love about travelling is receiving emails from my Mum and Dad about what’s happening in the bush around our family home. The first time I travelled overseas Mum would send telegrams. They would be waiting for me when I arrived in a new place. So very special!
I am travelling through Shanghai, Cambodia and Singapore over the next few weeks. Mum and Dad have started sending me the emails I treasure. Their daily stories and events. Here is one of my favourites, emailed through the other day as I arrived in Shanghai:
Dad rescued a Kookaburra from the pool Saturday Morning…Bedraggled and Listless…Towelled the Kooka off, dried with the Wigo Hair Dryer..fed her some meat…and after a while, the Kookaburra flew up into the Trees and Laughed and Laughed…with Her Mate..Now I have a big Dish of rain Water down under the Bottlebrush Trees, for her and all the other birds around to drink from there…
…Of Course the Willywag Tail &her Mate have a nest built in Your Cubby House and the two parents fly in and out feeding these chirpy Willys…..Dad poked a branch of a tree through the window space (that you would open with a string and piece of stick to prop the window open).
The Two Parent Willywag Tails bomb the Magpies that fly too close.
A Good Sport…for all the birds…and us to see… Enjoyable…entertaining…..
So great to receive! Thank you Mum and Dad!
