Grandpa Price - A tribute

Rev. Richard Leonard Price.


10th March 1935 - 27th September 2007
Those who are left behind mourn the passing of a loving, gentle, caring, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, mentor, minister and more....

"I'd like to say a few words on behalf of Luke, Michelle, Kimberly and Deanne who couldn't be here today. We all remember Grandpa as a loving, caring and sometimes Grumpy Grandpa. We remember his laughter & hugs, his odd sense of humour and Scottish Wig selection. Mum remembers the great times she had at youth group with Grandpa. But what I remember is his constant words of love, support & words of wisdom that he gave so freely and without expecting anything in return.
Grandpa, I know you're happy and content and where you want to be. We will always remember, we will always love and we will always think of you with a smile on our faces and happiness in our hearts.

Thank you for all that you gave to me throughout my life. Thank you for being my Grandpa"
3rd October 2007.

Grandpa's service was lovely, lots of friends and family travelled from afar to mourn our loss and celebrate his life. The service was conducted by Rev. Iain White, with Tributes from Dad (Anthony - youngest son), Grant (eldest son), Rowena (only daughter), Chris (son in law), Cassie (eldest Grand-daughter mother of 1st greatgrandchild) and my self (2nd eldest grand daughter).
Whilst we will miss him we can thank God that he is now pain free and with Jesus as he has aimed for it all his life!

New Christmas Idea

My Dear friends,

Christmas is coming and it may take me several years to recover financially
from last Christmas, so I will be making bedroom slippers for all as gifts.

Please let me know your sizes.
You'll most likely agree that it's a
splendid idea, and should you wish to do the same, I've included the
instructions below:
How to make bedroom slippers out of maxi pads:
You need four maxi pads to make a pair. Two of them get laid out flat,
for the foot part. The other two wrap around the toe area to form the
top. Tape or glue each side of the top pieces to the bottom of the foot
part. Decorate the tops with whatever you desire, silk flowers (this is
most aesthetically appealing), etc.
These slippers are:
* Soft and Hygienic
* Non-slip grip strips on the soles
* Built in deodorant feature keeps feet smelling fresh
* No more bending over to mop up spills
* Disposable and biodegradable
* Environmentally safe
* Three convenient sizes: Regular, Light and Get out the Sand Bags.
Below is a photo of the first pair I made so that you can see the
nifty slippers for yourself.

Melbourne Demons Vs. St Kilda Saints




Well I never actually thought I'd do this then admit to it.
Whilst in Melbourne, we (Leonard, Luke and myself) where able to attend the Saints Vs Demons Game at the MCG on Friday night. Leo and I cheered Luke's team - the Demons.
To start the evening a nice dinner at Luke's recommended Chinese Restaurant, followed by a walk (rather quickly) to the MCG as the trams were packed like sardines in a tin.
Then into the MCG and seated.
Now it's no fault of any of our party but we found ourselves seated above the membership section of the stands....for the Saints.....well I tell ya everytime the Saints scored I felt about 2 feet tall! Never mind...was a great evening.
Following the game was beverages at a little corner cafe.....hmmm beverages.

We also found that in Federation Square is a building that you can text messages to and it will be displayed in lights running across the building fronts....SICK!!!!

Coast Trip - Canberra Long Weekend 2007

So people, what do you get when you add five girls, one Holden with a RMW (NOT B!) and a unit at the coast?
Oh...forgot the cask and three bottles of wine, the three bottles of Jim Beam White Label and a bottle of Malibu.........
You get this!





Many thanks to you Cheyenne and your Mum (and Nan) for organising an awesome weekend.
Girls...good hustle...bad hang overs.....nice work!

Seems I did a lot of sleeping when I was younger...that has changed... time to harrass the big one!!! muAH HA HA HA HA

I have been replaced

The Slaves came home on Valentine's Day with a squeaky thing they call Jemelia.


They obviously expected me to teach her how things work around here...bloomin nuisance squeaking and carrying on. I had to listen to it all day whilst the slaves were out making money to feed ME. When they let her out I decided to show her who's boss.
I don't get it...I got into trouble... (still trying to figure out what NO means).... I was only letting her know that I am the king and I demand respect.
*SNORT* Sooner or later she'll be out of that room for good and then.....well we shall see.
I will not allow the slaves to think that they have bettered me and replaced me with The Squeak.....

YOU DID NOT JUST SEE THAT!!!! Turn that Camera OFF!!!!!!!

50th Wedding Anniversary

Leo and I were invited to Norwood Guesthouse to help celebrate Grandpa and Grandma's 50th Wedding Anniversary.

There was an influx of Price's, Laros's and others who have married in and I forgot their names or who are close friends to the Grandies.

For those who made it and for those who couldn't there are some photos on the link to the Flickr website.

Love ya Grandpa....Love ya Grandma

Toffee gets new clothes









Dear Diary,

I swear that woman who calls herself my mother has gone mental. I mean honestly, look at the crap I have to go through with. Do YOU think I look CUTE????
ONe of these days when she leasts expects it (and when she forgets to cut my claws) eh eh ehe he....then I shall have my revenge. But for now I must continue to plot my escape from this prison, this place that THEY call my home.
So many times I have gotten out when they open the doors , and I go futher each time. Darn it though, everytime I get captured and sent back inside. Unless of course it's out theback and Slavedog Bella likes to dob me in. The other day I succeeded and got into the neighbours yard. Silly people yellin and carrying on, I was just exploring.
Bah....the Female creature is yet to feed me and the Male one is on the thing they call the COmputer again. I'm getting the lay of the land by prowling around. perhaps if I meow loud enough they will let me out.

It must wait till another day........
