Begonia by karincharlotte Begonia by karincharlotte
My husband took this picture for me at a flower and garden show in Melbourne. I did doctor it up a bit to eliminate the distracting background. These flowers are not only stunning, but they are huge!

I have an adopted Grandfather who lives in Melbourne on Hereford Rd. He just turned 93. I met him in 1987 when he was touring the U.S. We hit it off and have been pen pals ever since. I went over on college break in 92 for 2 months and a week. I seen quite a lot. We went from Melbourne to Sydney, making stops along the way.

Yes, it was a wonderful trip. I seen quite a lot while I was there. I got to hold and touch koalas and kangaroos. I went to both the Melbourne Zoo and Sydney Zoo. I went to Koala Park and Pebbly Beach. I won't be able to go back. I'm very very poor and have quite a lot of debt due to health issues.

He and I try to correspond as much as possible, but he's really getting old (93) and doesn't write much. He has glaucoma and some other health issues as well. I miss him a lot and will always treasure my visit over there.

I was just wondering if you are close to my age. It's no big deal. I'm 51. It's no secret.

Re: your above question. I was just wondering if you are older, because a lot of older people have health issues. I see you are only 39. You are only a puppy, as my husband used to say to me a long time ago. Usually I don't ask people for their age, but I often wonder, because when you meet someone in the street you instantly see them, and can tell their age. It's natural to know a person's age when you talk to them.

Yes, this one is a real beauty! We saw it at the Flower and Garden show, and I just had to capture it on camera, or rather I asked my husband to take a photo for me. Thanks for your comment. :) :hug:
