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 4th

Wednesday 4th was quite a change, as it dawned mild and warm, much to our joy. After breakfast, the usual 9 o'clock parade took place. At 11:15, we had a medical examination & then our lunch. After lunch a couple of us took a walk to the wagon lines for som efresh music. Played for the Blue Gums in the evening.

Monday 4th got off to a lazy start, maybe because of the overcast sky portending more rain, but very little fell (if any). Traffic across town was messy. Daughter had an early start to Uni, with two mid-semester exams to contend with. Her comment on neuro-anatomy exam was "It might have been harder if they had a question What is your name? in it." I bought some more timber on the way home, to make a second blanket box to match the first and to make the other stool Mrs D has requested. (I suppose I should put up some pics soon.)
