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.)

Bush fires were HOW hot???

Ken took his Suzuki to our local bike shop for a service last week. I drove him over there today to pick it up, and Steve, the owner of the shop, showed me what was left of one of his bikes. He had a property up at Strathewan which was burnt out by the bushfires, destroying a caravan, motorcycle, and other bits and pieces.
All that was left was this:
This was a post-hole digger.

And these were the wheels on his motorcycle.

Oh, thank you for your interesting answers to my "interview"! I had forgotten - but maybe remembered subliminably - about your mother's disability.

Interesting answers!

... As I typed that a moment ago, I wondered if I'd typed "subliminably" correctly. And then I published it and immediately realised that the reason it looked funny was that I meant "subliminally". D'oh!
