A busy day for Vince - but not me

Vince has gone into our nearest city, Bunbury, in Western Australia. I feel a bit strange calling it a city as it doesn't seem that big to me. We only go there when we need to but when we do go we try to make the most of the trip. He has an appointment for a specialist for a routine procedure he has every few years. He will also see the financial consultant who looks after our superannuation fund. A visit to the Social Security place would be next if he still has time. This place is notorious for very slow service. He has to pick up two pairs of trousers from Rivers. He has taken the receipt from his last purchase and will get 40% once he produces it. That's why we didn't bring the trousers home last time. He wants to get a hair-cut, he needs to pick up some pellets for Herc and – icing on the cake – when we visited the retirement village we were given a ticket in a raffle – and we won! How cool is that? So he needs to pick up our prize which I'll photograph for my next post. I can't really remember what the prize was. Hopefully he'll get home in time to go to golf so it will be mostly a day on my own today. I don't have a relevant photo so will use a kangaroo paw which is our state flower.

@CoralLevang It's not tropical - just one of our native wildflowers, more common in the cooler south-west than in the northern warmer parts. It doesn't have much of a fragrance. And yes, it's a bit similar to a Bird of Paradise.
