Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 10 - August 29th

Thursday Aug 29th 7 am found us up looking out upon a bright mild morning much to our delight. After breakfast we were given a job to build bomb proof shelters around the horses - which of course we enjoyed (perhaps). Once again we had word of a shift so we knocked off digging & had a spell before tea - after which we had a little practice. After writing you I tumbled into my corner bed & fell into a good old sleep.

Tuesday Aug 29th
saw me out of bed early with intentions of heading across to the office. Some more showers in the night, and still drizzling at 05:00. Headache seems to have gone, which is good; don't get many, but they are mind altering monsters when they do come. Office was fairly boring, and the rain didn't continue.
