Heading for the Hills
Birthday girl Floretta
i t was Friday the 13th November and it had been a busy week and this evening we had been invited to go to one of our friends 60th Birthday.
Kim and Floretta Parker are friends from our 4 wheel drive club and they live up in the Perth Hills, you may remember a blog back in December 2013 well on the 16/12/2013 to be exact where someone we know had a coach, that they had converted and had toured around Australia in for 8 years, well this is them, the blog title was called Montecarlo on Bus(T)
When you look at Floretta there is no way you would have her down for 60 years old, may be very late forties or early 50’s but no way 60.
Well it’s a fact today the Thirteenth of November Floretta Parker Turned 60 and she looks amazing for it.
We have had the invite for the party for the last 8 weeks and were excited about going, (A) its to celebrate a special friends Birthday (B) its really Pretty up in the Perth Hills and (C) lots of our friends will be there, and knowing Kim, Floretta’s husband he
will have gone the extra mile to put on a great do.
I collected Caroline from the Fremantle Train Station, which is right next to the Ocean Liner Terminal and The Diamond Princess was in last week and now there is a steady stream of these massive ocean liners coming and going, one in, one out.
We shot back to the Cabin and showered and shaved and got our party gear on, then jumped in to Jack and headed for the Hills, our Journey was about 50 minutes dependant on traffic so we gave ourselves plenty of time and ended up at the Parkers place just after 6.00pm and the party did not start until six thirty, still someone has to be the first to arrive.
The only reason we took Jack was simple, Party’s in Australia are 99% of the time are outside, and usually your alfresco seating area does not have a huge amount of seating and on the invitation it clearly said bring chairs and as we constantly keep our camp chairs in Jack, there was no point in decanting them in to Gill just to save on a bit of fuel, as Jack

loves Diesel and drinks it like its going out of fashion.
When we arrived Floretta was just coming out of the shower, (So we were reliably informed, by Kim) their house is lovely, such a large block, well you can tell how big the place is as they keep the coach there and the Big box trailer and the Landcruiser.
Out in the back, every thing was set up for a Party there was a fire burning just for a bit of ambience, so we opened a drink and soon the Birthday Girl came out to greet us.
It was great to see Kim and Floretta as it had been a little while since we had last seen them.
As parties usually do, they become quite secular and people group with who they want to congregate with, we sat with certain people and then moved around and had a little while with everyone as a lot of our deer friends were here.
The great thing was that we would soon all be together again this coming weekend when we would all be together in Beverley for our end of year round up.
delighted that Floretta the Birthday Girl had had a great birthday, we managed to last until about 11.00pm then decided to hit the road as we had about 50 minutes to get home and we would have an early start in the morning as we would be up early to go to a working bee at Karaakin, (The Black Cockatoo Society)
So until tomorrow (Oh and my apologies for the photo"s) these were taken on my i-phone as I had forgotten my camera
