I doubt anyone can be more surprised than I. I’m not going to bore those that pop by, to see what I’m rambling on about this time, with the details, but just say that I’ve been somewhat unwell, and had thought, that by now, I’d be well and truly chilling off down in Wollongong.
There is some indication that the War Office is perhaps concerned, she repeatedly keeps asking ” What am I going to do?” I must admit, I’ve been tempted to tell her that she might do the right thing, and precede me, kind of pave the way for my grand entrance.
Anyway, I’m still here, doing nothing, not enjoying it one bit, I’d go completely around the bend if it wasn’t for my Coco, he stays with me, and keeps me company, not that he’s much company, he lies down, goes to sleep, and snores; which I suppose is company of sorts.
I confess, I rushed through the last couple of posts I did, to make sure I got them out of the way and finish up one load of codswallop at least.
Since then, whilst flopped out, doing precious little, I’ve been toying with all the little episodes to regale the faithful, some funny, some not so funny, all true. Like the time I aided an escaper from jail get clean away, and got paid $40.00 for my effort,
That was back in 1980/81; thereabouts and I still chuckle when I recall that time.
Then there was my run in, with one Mr Wilson “Iron Bar” Tuckey; so named because he did, at one time, take to an Aborigine with an iron bar. That wasn’t funny; and a couple of years before that, my meeting with a very young Mr Rod Laver, around the time of his first “Grand Slam” ; now that was funny.
Must admit, that it’s hard trying to get motivated. I haven’t touched the stuff that I’m gathering together for my granddaughters, to read when they grow, I have well over 100 pages ready, kind of to print out, but there is so much missing, I want to finish it off properly. Can’t stand leaving stuff half done!
As for my email, I’ve opened the thing most mornings, taken one look occasionally opened up one or two post notifications, made a comment and closed the thing down.
I apologize to all that have written to me, and to all those that may think that I’ve been ignoring them and their post, I will try and catch up over the next few days, cheers
