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 23 - October 22nd

Tuesday Oct 22nd found us up at 7am in our new home. After cleaning up we went on a mornings route march. After about 2 hours rest, 4 of us set out for Vergies to visit our friends there. We arrived at 5pm, & left again at 9. Had a good time, but a long walk.

Sunday Oct 22nd is fresh and damp. Yes, it rained last night! First a storm then, a short while later, steady soaking light rain. Everything looks much better, but we need something like this every day for weeks to really make any inroads into the drought. And that just isn't going to happen.
