Is this goodbye?

I'm not sure. Is it?

Do I move my blog over to my FABULOUS NEW WEBSITE?

I've started posting over there to see how I feel about it. So head on over to stay in touch.

And who knows? Maybe I'll be back.

I'll have to ask my webmaster extraordinaire how to keep the name Davernator with the new blog.

It's not a name one can give up easily.

I know it's so yesterday's news, but the Rocks were selected to be in the opening event of the l'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival! Michelle Jank, accessories designer and stylist extraordinaire spotted the earrings at e.g.etal and thought they were perfect for the 'Denim Decades' section of the opening runway, Fashion Full Stop. As I can't afford my own photographer, I nicked these images from and unfortunately couldn't find a photographer's credit.

This should be mine!!

Although I'm really quite glad it's at the Man From Snowy River Museum. Apparently the Australian War Memorial have tried to get their hands on it but the Men From Snowy River have dug their heels in. I love a regional museum.

It was knitted by Jim Simpson when he was a prisoner of war in Germany during the second world war (is that supposed to be in capitals?). On arrival at the camp he was warned that the German guards would take his new naval pullover from him and send it to the Russian front, so he went to the loo and unravelled it! And that was the beginning of the quilt. Jim is the quintessential digger, he retains his humour through adversity and he has some great stories to tell. You can hear some of them in this wonderful 5 min doco produced by Culture Victoria
