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 11-12 - September 2nd

Monday Sept 2nd broke in upon us with the news of another shift (plenty shifts eh) so after breakfast we packed up & made tracks for our new resting place which proved to be a place called (GURLU) about 1 1/2 miles behind here. Arrived there we made one more home, but a jolly rough one this trip, nevertheless it served our purpose - so we must not grumble.

Saturday Sept 2nd dawned fine and clear. Seems we have seen the last of the rain for the time being. It gave me a chance to finish off the latest little wood-butchering project and to start another, after the weekly shopping trip. A fairly lazy day, really, but the little magazine shelves (for WoodenBoat, Australian Amateur Boat Builder, and woodworking magazines) are turning out quite well.
