Without doubt. Without question! Back in August I posted a blog advising my reader/s / follower/s, that I had become a certifiable idiot, stuck in front of the idiot box watching the rubbish that passes as entertainment. Sorry to say that matters have deteriorated to the stage where I now find myself talking/yelling at the… Continue reading Completely Bonkers!

Last night around 8.30 I switched on my TV, I watch “The Blacklist” with James Spader. I rather enjoy watching this actor, he always has a delightful supercilious air about him. There’s no difference in his acting in this program as in “Boston Legal” which I found quite amusing; until it…
Getting there at last! At least I think I am; last week I actually picked up a book to read, with the exception of that small book I bought the other week after reading a blog about it, it’s only 68 pages short and is titled “84, Charing Cross Road”; (note the comma after the… Continue reading Few and far between. Blogs that is!
You be the judge ! Believe it or not I started this blog on the 29th/30th August and today is? The 24th September; now the trouble is I can’t recall what I was going to write back then, what I do know is that I wasn’t very happy and was at a low point. I’d had this… Continue reading Lethargy & Me.
It’s been a while now In fact it’s six weeks ago today (Wednesday the 5th August) that I had the total gastrectomy and in the interim I’ve made one post, that was a must do for me; and nothing else. As for the newspapers, I just couldn’t be bothered, The Sydney Morning Herald once a… Continue reading Dust off the cobwebs.
Sometime ago, actually a long time ago, back in 1965 or it may have been 1966 I was wandering along William Street in Melbourne just up from Collins Street, (I stand to be corrected on this; that’s of course if my sister recalls that day) with a female workmate who’s name long escapes me when… Continue reading Ward 9 West 2 RPAH.
Half ‘n half It seems fair enough to say that my life has been split into halfs, 0-40 and 41-80, the first half was all about me and the second all about family, it’s also pretty certain that had I have not come to Sydney in 1974 there would have been no second half; and… Continue reading One Day In May
In under two days. Around 40 hours from now I’ll be toddling along to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for my meeting with Profeesor Sandroussi and his team who plan to open me up and put me back together again. If all goes well 48 hours from now they’ll be wheeling me into the ICU… Continue reading One way or the other
One week to go! This time next Wednesday the 24th June the total gastrectomy operation should hopefully be over; it will take approximately 4½ – 5 hours after which I shall be shuffled off to the ICU or Wollongong University. Last Monday I had to attend the ‘Royal Prince Alfred’s Pre-admission Unit’ for a final… Continue reading The Seven Day Countdown Starts.
This was originally posted in October 2013 and somehow it disappeared so here is a reprise Yesterday evening I happened to be watching TV, a program named Command Centre and the War office told me that there was a movie on later that might interest me: U571. Now normally movies about naval events of WWII… Continue reading U-571 More Hollywood Propaganda
The final countdown? Perhaps! Today I start the countdown for my appointment with the surgeon tomorrow forthnight Wednesday the 24th June. Tonight I take some of my pills for what may well be the last time; also I shall be having my last beer, or two, for what may be the last time. I have… Continue reading The countdown begins….
Some prefer reading the blogs. There are those who prefer to know what’s going on via my posts than by email, even though I Bcc the stuff I send out; kind of keeps it personal, so here’s a cut and paste of an email I sent this morning to my sister who had requested an… Continue reading For those who are email free :)
More than a match. In the penultimate paragraph of my previous post I mentioned what actually amounted to an ultimatum. I’d been unable to resist the temptation in giving Kerry a big hug with a big kiss to go with it after hearing “The Sorry Tale Of A Poor Bus Driver”, even now some 40… Continue reading Desperate Measures!
Is losing an option? I’m starting to believe that with a little concentration it is impossible to lose. That’s 7000 played and won! Click on the picture to enlarge.
Is that possible? Might be! Half a lifetime ago, well in my case it is, I arrived in Sydney, why I really didn’t know or care I was the ‘Peripatetic Pom Personified’; after being transferred from Shay Gap in W.A. to Nhulumby on the Gove Peninsular, Northern Territory by Poone Bros. tossing the job in, in… Continue reading 540° to Port
