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 12 - September 3rd

Tuesday Sept 3rd dawned cold & made the old bed feel about 50% better than it was. Anyhow we had to leave it at 7am to get our breakfast. After that, we made some very necessary improvements to our little abode & then carried some water & wood for the cooks. The Battn is resting after coming out of the trenches. We played a few tunes for the boys. During the afternoon the Blue Gums (11th Bde concert party) gave a show in a shed close handy.

Sunday Sept 3rd is another clear morning. No real plans for today, but I'm sure someone will make some for me. Ended up having a pleasant day of wood-butchering under the trees in the back yard. Indonesians love their dengklek (small bench stools) so I knocked one up for Mrs D out of assorted offcuts. Turned out quite well. Now she wants one a little taller.
