Welcome to WHUDUNIT Land!

Welcome to the Whudunit Land website.   If you follow us, you'll know we just returned yesterday (2/11/10) after spending the past 4 weeks down under.   The real news here is that we were greeted by Kenny Koala, who generally flys the Australia flag, also sporting the "Boxing Kangaroo" flag, and he was happy!    The Winter Olympics open tonight, and the Official Olympic Committee has now reversed its previous ruling, and will allow the Australian competitors to fly the Boxing Kangaroo from their Olympic housing!   (You'll see the "Boxing Kangaroo" flag being waved by spectators at many and most sporting events - - - to many Aussies it signifies the competitive spirit that Aussies bring to any athletic event!)  Go USA and Australia!

OK - for those of you who have complained about my not staying up with the WHUDUNIT website --- I'm going to get after it!   Actually my inspiration came from the pictures of our family taken by our own Tracey McManus (one shown below taken in July 2009).   For those who don't know -- Tracey is not only a cousin of Patty's, but it is the same Tracey McManus, who along with her husband, Paul, have authored and expanded on "The Seven Great Prayers", an incredibly successful and powerful program, receiving worldwide acclaim!


Maybe I'm getting sappy in my old age, but here's a poem that has a nice message for us all, that was found in The Country Register in British Columbia

The tide recedes, but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.

The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers in the land.

The music stops, and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains.

For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains.

                                                        - M. D. Hughes

- - - and speaking of something beautiful

Hi!   I'm Mema, or Patty, if you prefer.    Welcome to our website.    This is a rather sizeable Tasmanian gum tree, and one that Bill suggested I pose in before he had me check for snakes.   I think it was just an oversight!

This site was started a few years ago primarily for the kids and grandkids, so that they could follow our antics.    Along the way, we've picked up a few other relatives and friends (some are both!).   We're a bit new at this, and obviously amateurs, so if the pictures aren't spectacular, or the verbiage a bit boring, forgive us (and blame Bill).

Most recently we're taking a bush trek through the beautiful Western Provinces of Canada, up thru The Yukon, over "The Top of the World" trail and on to Alaska.    (See the W. Canada/Alaska 2006 tab, and don't forget to double click on small pictures to bring 'em up to size!)   

We said a while ago that we were still pointing to get back to two of our all-time favorite haunts -- Australia and New Zealand,   probably Winter of 2006/2007.    Well we  didn't make it!   However, here it is January of 2010, and we ARE making it back, at least to Australia.   Look out NZ, we still have you in our sights for another visit!   We just don't seem to be able to get enough of those great countries, or their great people.    Most of the comments and questions we get seem to revolve around our experiences in Australia.    So, if you're contemplating a trip down under, you might want to start with "Australia 2001", and then move on to "Australia 2004" (or any other link, for that matter),  and now give "Australia 2010" a try, and enjoy it with us!

Cheers, Mates !
