Linking with  Dayle at  alittleofthisandthat2.blogspot
Hello everyone,
My simple pleasure this week is knowing that my grand-daughter Monique,who lives in Townsville, Queensland, came through Cyclone Yasi without injury.The building she lives in is undamaged.
This cyclone has caused horrendus damage to buildings and crops in far north Queensland   BUT    there has been no loss of life and no-one was injured. THANK THE LORD.
My heart and prayers go  out to the people affected  by this disaster.
Sorry this post is not a happy happy one but I'm sure you will all understand.
