HOW SOME DAYS BEGIN
Today started with me admiring Crimson Rosellas feeding amidst pink blossoms, pouring warm water over windscreen ice and dragging a dead Eastern Grey Kangaroo off Penrose Road by its tail. The roo, a big female, had only recently been hit. Its nose and eyes were bloodied. Obviously, major head trauma led to its death. When driving to work on the Hume Highway, I cursed myself for not checking the roo's pouch. LJ, August 21 2013.
