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 13 - September 7th

Saturday Sept 7th At 8am we rose, to find it nice and mild. After breakfast we went out to souvenir dead Germans & found a few little ones. Spent all afternoon fooling around & decided to have a cold bath in the Canal and it was cold too, but very nice (after it was over).

Thursday Sept 7th started off very windy - the August south-westerlies have arrived late, and would most likely blow a dog off a chain. A trip across to the office, despite a very painful knee, to see if the car continues to do its severe overheating trick - it didn't, but was telling me it was very hot; looks like a dud temperature sensor. Knee didn't get any better.
