Playing Cowboy

I actually slept in this morning and was woken up by the phone. I answered but it already went to message bank. I rang the number and it was the Red Cross asking if I had seen my neighbour this morning and could I ring them back. So I got up, dressed and went across the road to knock on his door. It took several knocks and I called out with no response. I was just about to go around the back and see if he was out in his shed, and he came to the door, half dressed!!! He said he hadn't had a call but I looked on his mobile and he had missed about 4 calls and also had messages. So I just gave him the number to call back and waited until he had punched it in and was talking and then came home.
After that, I had a quiet morning and then went out to grab lunch and afternoon tea and head over to Jane's for our Thursday craft group. Again just 3 of us as it is the last week of school holidays and the other couple of people are away.
We went out as usual for tea at the hotel and this time we had a friend and his brother come as well. The friend lives in Queensland and his brother lives in New Zealand. They grew up in the Mallee area (farming area) and went to the same school as my hubby. He used to go on motorbike trips with Peter.
They came back home and went through some old photos and chatted.
Our son, Ryan and his wife popped in on their way home from having dinner out and he was complaining about his meal and how he was not very impressed with it. LOL, he ended up having a bowl of the soup I made a couple of days ago and then a bowl of icecream as well!!!
I didn't start my card till really late as I took the dogs for a walk after everyone left.
So here is what I made.
