Hello all,

I'm sorry my blogs have been sporadic. And the images nil.

But hope to make up for it on this blog.

I think we will have Internet from now on. Sure hope so.

We leave tomorrow morning for Dunedin which is further south

and on the east coast (Pacific). We will leave the Southern Alps

to return to the sea.Dundedin is the most European of all the New Zealand

cities. I think Dunedin means Edenbourgh in Galic. Looking forward to some

new architecture. BTW, only sheep with horns is the Merino buck. The scripture's

Are certainly right about the sheep only hear their masters voice. They sure didn't

hear mine. Remember to click on the images to enlarge.

May the SHEEP be with you

Oh the Lupines!!!
Your pictures are a sight for sore eyes on this chilly 4 degree morning here in WI. CO has had some very cold temps lately too, so you took the best time to get out of there!! All the green, the lakes, the animals, are just beautiful. And how did you arrange to have all the houses where you stay with such big windows with such gorgeous views??!! Just sitting here waiting for the sun to come up a bit more to possibly bring things up a degree or two so I can go out to feed my animals. Brrrr,...wish I was there with you all. So happy you are having such a good time. God bless,....

Hello NZ
Hi Lowell and Gloria, The photos of Lake Wanaka and Waktipu are awesome. The gas station out in the sticks one is pretty cool also. Looking forward to discussing your trip with you one on one, perhaps in Stillwater MN sometime. Five degrees and sunny here today.

Fabulous pictures! We are in Colorado Springs at our kids house for New Years and Ahmi's birthday yesterday! We watched Lord of the Rings last night which they are all into and Doug said it was all filmed in New Zealand! He knows someone who lives and works there in the business. He actually could go live there and work there if he wanted! We are going to go to church soon so better go. Love you! Oh, we ate and played cards at John and Elaine's Fri and she is doing much better. Goes to Dr. K. Tomorrow. Love, Sharon
