Signs, Signs #20


I lost all my Wednesday and Thursday posts last week, and their comments, and of course among them was the Signs post. Blogger never retrieved any of them for me :-(

I will repost last week's sign later, but this week I decided is the perfect time to post my little collection of Australian animal road signs.

And why is it perfect?

Because on July 11th. Sigve and I will have been married for 30 years, and this weekend he revealed to me what my 30th anniversary present is going to be: 

a trip to Australia, to visit dear friends,
for nearly 4 weeks, leaving on June 26th! 

Unfortunately Sigve cannot travel yet, as his immune system is still not strong enough after his stem cell transplant last August, but he knows how much I love to travel, and he knows how exhausted I am feeling these days, so he's giving me this break on my own. Isn't he just a dear?

(If you like, you can read all about our journey through his leukemia on my other blog, Journey to life.)

We both visited Australia in March 2008, and that's when I collected these signs. They are very exotic to us northerners :-)


















Visit Lesley for more signs.

Heisann!

Artige skilt. Det rare er at jeg kan ikke huske å ha sett dem. Vi var i Victoria, Great ocean road, Melbourne mm i 2004.
Ha fortsatt fine dager med å glede deg over den flotte gava ;:OD)

Unique signs for a unique land. What a wonderful man you have to understand you need to travel even when he can't.

What a sweet man, indeed.
I will bookmark your other posts to read yup on your journey (now that I know the outcome, I can read it backwards!)
Congratulations on 30 years together!

Wonderful Inger. You have a lovely lovely husband there. (As my mother-in-law used to say 'he's a keeper'),

You do need the trip and the rest; do take along your camera (I'm sure you will). (I just looked back to see when you're actually going and I see it's not for over a month-- so I'm sure I'll "visit" in the meantime.
