AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Last Christmas holidays I travelled into Melbourne for the day.
This sign was one of many, inviting people to some special exhibition.
I loved how this particular sign invented a new word - "brickvention".

Lego is for all
An old creative building game
And still popular

Legos came into my life when my twin grandsons got big enough to play with them. Now my almost two year old great-granddaughter is playing with them. So glad she enjoys them. I enjoy watching her with them. Of course, I get involved because she brings them to me. FUN! :D

Oh, a brickvention! I would go in a heartbeat :)

That's true! It was around for so long. Amazing it could still sustain.

Lego was my favourite toy when I was young. For some reason this surprises people.

I looked up their website - it would be fun to see.

Our older two grandsons were big Lego fans -- I didn't realize how serious a hobby it was. Very interesting.
