The park near home is a "lead free" zone for dogs. Owners can let the puppies off for a romp. There are often dogs of every shape and size running around and getting to know each other.
This morning I went over to see if I could see the cockatoos that I mentioned earlier and they were a no show yet again. I turned around and saw these guys running around and play fighting over a palm frond of all things. They were very funny and this is the only shot I got that worked...
The smaller dog eventually won and proudly carried the prize off into the distance.

I went back out this morning but cockatoos are smart birds and when it's windy and raining smart birds stay in their nest...
On the way I passed the construction zone from yesterday and one of the machinery items had been left behind. I took some product shots and this little truck is now sitting on my desk.
If you know anyone who had a BBQ at the park in Richmond last night, I have their truck...

Some years ago my father had a heart transplant... You never plan for these things they just happen. The biggest problem with any sort of transplant is that someone has to donate their body, or parts of it, and the people around them have to know their wishes.
Unfortunately people die on the waiting list because people haven't talked about donating their organs with their family and friends.
My father was fortunate to have the help of a gifted surgeon and was able to survive for 40 days on an artificial heart. At the time 40 days was the record (the record was broken by the next person who needed it) and unbelievably his health actually improved while he was attached.
One of the people I now work with has had a transplant and his wife has also had a transplant. Please check out this website for an idea that may just save someones life...
Oh, and discuss organ donation with everyone you love, it may just be the most important thing you do today...
