JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

A 70th Birthday Party

A very good friend and neighbour of ours, from our Julia Creek days, celebrated his 70th birthday this week and invited friends to Table 51 restaurant in Townsville to help him celebrate.  It really felt like a "back to Julia Creek" night as we caught up with so many of our friends who were either still living in Julia Creek or had lived there previously.
On the night, we also gave some thought to hubby's father who shared a birth day with our friend.  My father-in-law would have turned 80 this week.
Our birthday boy retired to Townsville some years ago and I have to say that he looks fantastic!  If that is what retirement does for you......please bring it on!
