walking the dog on Australian election night
We strolled along the top of the cliff overlooking Darebin Parklands tonight and gazed across at the lights of the city of Melbourne. It was strangely quiet in our suburb - perhaps everyone was inside listening to the pundits discuss the progress of the election counting.
We stopped off at a little park to let Penny run around chasing her night-time ball. She sure looks scary when she bursts out of the darkness at your feet with the red ball glowing.
When we got home Penny plopped down in front of the tv to listen to Kevin Rudd making the victory speech for the Australian Labor Party - certainly a new era in Australian history...
