krazykitkat: (stitch with ducks)
Santa came around this evening on the bushfire truck. Except, this year was a little different. Santa was riding Puff the Tragic Waggon instead of Puff the Magic Wagon. Puff the Tragic is a 1940s fire truck that the bushfire brigade have restored. She's beautiful, but did almost run out of steam climbing up our hill. It was hilarious.

5 photos and two videos below the cut, including the classic fire truck siren (bringing back old movie memories).

All taken at our local oval. Helicopters and a shot or two of the awful smoke that had us nervous. Photos and commentary by sister.

Skycrane Delilah filling up at Macquarie University to dump on the fire at West Pymble. Apparently she did 6 trips. Really fabulous photos and commentary by my sister.

My, my, my, Delilah )

Bit of a drama in our neck of the woods this arvo/tonight. Mum called me at work to say that a tree had come down in the next side street, snapping 3 power poles. Dad said he'd been down in the garage doing woodwork, when he heard a crack and thought he'd snapped the piece of pine he was ruling. He went out and said that the power lines right up the street were bouncing. Our power went up and down but we stayed on.

They'd started the cleanup when I got home, and are working possibly right through the night, till it's all fixed. Funny thing is that the tree that came down (it was actually half the tree, the trunk was in a V) was supposed to be taken out today because it was dangerous. One of the electricity workers here tonight said he'd come out Saturday to put the protective sleeves on the power lines. They'll still have to take out the other half of the tree which is leaning the other way towards the house.

Some photos of my little corner of the world, taken by my sister.

I emailed an ebay seller that I'd be interested in buying their thing, but the price they want on buy it now is beyond my budget and also much more expensive than the price I paid for an autographed photo of the much more famous co-star. They've just put it up for the 5th month at exactly the same price! Does that make any business sense?

Merry Christmas to those celebrating.

Watched the Carols tonight. Marina Prior gorgeous as always (and not pregnant!), and Debra Byrne's little girl was so cute! And for a 5 year old, not a nerve showing.

My sister was taking some photos:
our Chrissie tree )

For the last few years, Santa has come round on the bush firies' truck. Luckily, with the heat today and the total fire ban, they didn't have to work.

My brother is staying with us for the next few days (he's just moved to the other side of Sydney), and our other brother and his wife will be over for Christmas dinner.

While I had the camera out for the birds, decided to take some of other possibly (but probably not) interesting things.
