PIWAKAWAKA






Robert commented "Do not knock it. It sounds special and nice to me." on Richard's latest post where he recounted meeting some piwakawaka on a walk today - HERE AGAIN


I've got no argument against that although I object to Robert calling me out for bantering with Richard. That's none of his business.


I like fantals or piwakawaka as they are named in New Zealand. We have a lot of nice coastal bush walks close to where we live and the piwakawaka flit around us as we pass. They also follow me when I'm playing golf. It is magic and nice and I am pleased that Richard has experienced and enjoyed this as well.


A couple of years ago I photographed a piwakawaka from the top of the Kauri Mountain walk nearby.






It was a magic moment as Richard and Robert have said.

No problem there, but you are getting a bit of a reputation as a banterer.
And you could have said (if you were a Christian), "That's none of his bees wax.'
I'm not sure where the possessive apostrophe should go there.

I'd lose my voting rights as a CURMUDGEON if I didn't banter.

Imagine Robert and Sue coming to stay. It could be like the Murray Roberts delivery truck all over again. You could pack up orders every morning and head off together!

I'm safe - he thinks that I live in Auckland.
