Pictures of the Week 26

Who knows what I'm doing, half the time I'm aimlessly running through the bush, and the rest of the time I carry heavy things.

The macadamia gods have been mild with me this year. The kereru and kaka missed quite a bit.

In other, possibly interesting news, I decided to improve my writing abilities. So I contacted the one and only Joel Stein (Time columnist) and asked him to be my facebook friend – which he didn’t really take up – and also why he never writes about New Zealand. He is a funny sort and I enjoy his columns,. His response was short and a bit dull. Basically, he wouldn’t mind a free vacation with his lovely wife Cassandra to New Zealand, and could then possibly write something about NZ.

And there I was, dreaming of becoming Joel’s protégée and New Zealand correspondent, but hey, I can still try to copy his wit and bizarrely attractive writing style. I might just keep mentioning Joel on my blog and see what it leads to…

  1. Looks like you’ve been having some nice weather mate. Did you really build that ladder yourself, like cutting the wood and the rebates? It looks mint! Momo is as Momo does. And save a couple of nuts for me! Paul xxxxx

    1. Yupp, once you’re here you’ll notice another addition to BENIsLAND and that ladder is just part of the learning curve of being here. The tricky bit was actually marking the angles without utilizing a protractor, but then again they taught us plenty at school which continues to amaze me, and similarly the rebates.

      So yeah, after that I just cut 5 mm into the areas where the rebates had to go, about 6 cuts, and used a chisel and hammer to chisel them out.

      Then again, you might just be joking…
      Aaaah Momo, he just seems to have it all figured out, doesn’t he.
