Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

In defence of truck drivers.

One of my American friends Patty has a new job. Well, she's been there two months, so it's almost new. She works for a trucking company, and she has posted some photos of the office and yard. But that's not the reason I've mentioned her now. She has written a couple of paragraphs about how, since she has been working with them, she has a different perception of truck drivers and what they put up with on the roads. I think it is very relevant, in view of recent events in Melbourne involving trucks. Have a read here and see if you agree with me (and Patty).

Interesting reading, but I must confess to being distracting by the photos of those beautiful frogs.

LOL Blush. Thanks for the nice comments about my photos. I'm thinking of reposting as I think I want to add a few more thoughts about being safe around trucks.
I'm also trying to get caught up on posts.
