These are the somewhat random and often scattered thoughts of the Marr family members about almost anything - what we are currently doing on the web, recent outings (as distinct from being 'let out'), any interesting stoushes we have had or are trying to have with any one or thing that annoys us, things happening around us, etc. etc.

There goes the diet ..................
We are discovering all sorts of ways in which living in a Caravan Park can have advantages (so far, haven't found any disadvantages), however, the latest innovations by Park Management are certainly not conducive to good dieting.
On the weekends during the busiest periods (the Park is now relatively quiet and empty, and will no doubt stay that way until Labour Day weekend or Easter) we have had regular visits from a number of vendors plying their trade, to their and our benefits.
We have had the "coffee Man" who sets up and sells the usual fare in coffee to anyone needing their caffeine fix. The usual array of styles and flavours are available, so you can satisfy whatever craving you may have at the time.
The "Spud Caboose" has been dropping in selling baked potatoes, hot dogs, etc. He has been a little inconsistent with his visits; not calling in at advertised times and sometimes setting up outside those times - so he can be a little difficult to catch. It has certainly cost him some business with us due to these irregularities.
My favourite, of course, has been the Ice Cream Van. Beautiful, flavoured soft-serve in a waffle type cone. I can heartily recommend the boysenberry from among the many, many flavours on offer, including strawberry which Robbie loved.
As well as these weakenders, a local butcher comes through a couple of times a week and you can buy direct from him. A local baker also visits so fresh baked bread is always on the go.
Aaaah, it's a difficult situation - but someone's gotta do it.
