Hi Smile
Interesting to note you arrived in rainy conditions.
Now looks as though you depart at the beginning of a heat spell.
(Hotter than Italy or Greece today.)
Hope all goes smoothly on your return to Oz...  bye

Safe journey back to Aus mate. I have not been on the computer for a few days as she who must be obeyed has had me blitzing the garden a quarter of an acre is too much for two old codgers to contend with especially when the uncultivated land next to us is a wildlife paradise but a big part of that paradise is weed seeds that many bird species love but unfortunately cannot eat them all so they blow into our garden and set up home there. We have many areas where we dare not use weed killer  so it is down on the knees and pull them out. Must admit her in doors does an equal share of the hard graft.
We are currently in the process of booking our annual holiday which we will be taking in November until January, the destination is Melbourne, the best deal that we have come up with so far is Brunei airlines, as you are an intrepid traveller yourself any advice on the best deals will be gratefully received. It. Will be Christmas in the sun this year.
Finally sorry about the majority of the weather you received while you have been here but you certainly got around quite a lot and the weather has done you proud at the end.
Bon voyage my friend, sorry that I missed you while you were here. bye

We flew with Etihad, good price, and not too bad a service, such a long hau.l Next time I go, It'll be business class.. this cattle class (economy) really takes it out of you, but you have to go with what you can afford at the time.
Make sure you look Alby up, and if your up my way look me up, I'm just sorry I didn't get your address before I left.



The Lincoln Imp.. I found it.

Andrew, we will have to have a word with Martin and ask him to let us have each others email addresses, then problems like when we were within a short distance of each other when you went to Lincoln and the opportunity to meet up was lost.

Oh dear
Oz is such a massive country that the distances between places are so vast. I got my atlas out of the cupboard and Geelong was only 2 cm from where we will be staying in Leongatha and Sydney was only 12 cm away hey ho there you go in the future people will be transporting themselves just like in Startrek.

Leongatha....
You're over in the Gippsland area of the state Les.
Hhhmmm.... I'd probably spend a few $ and head down to Sorrento and take the Ferry over to Queencliff if you were heading over this way instead of the traffic hassles through Melbourne then the boring drive down the highway.... Hey, You might not even want to go over this way......

Yes we are in Gippsland Alby, that is where our daughter lives and we will be visiting her before Christmas during Christmas and after Christmas. My wife says, "I hope we don't wear our welcome out going for 6 weeks". I don't think so she was always a daddy's girl and still is. Yes Andrew I am afraid that "Beam me up Scotty" is a long way down the road, but I can wait LOL. If Chris has any interest in football I feel sure that she has told you that Rotherham United won the play-off final and will be playing in the Championship next season.  trophy 

I watched the match on Sky Sports with my wife, eldest daughter and son-in-law and when the game went to extra time and then to a penalty shoot-out my blood pressure went sky high. I know it went sky high at that time because I had bought a blood pressure monitor last year and took it with me. Why did I buy a blood pressure monitor you may ask, well the reason is every time my doctor took my blood pressure it was high, even though we are friends somehow the white smock syndrome came into effect. Of course when the practice nurse took my blood pressure it was always OK. My doctor, based on his findings prescribed blood pressure reducing tablets for me. I therefore bought my own blood pressure monitor and due to my findings I have never taken one of his prescribed tablets. I told him this but he said, "I will not cancel the prescription just take one if your own BP readings are high".

Oh by the way my wife has just booked our flights and they are with Etiad Airlines so my friend if it turns out to be rubbish be thankful that Sydney is a long way from Leongatha. (only joking). ROTFLMAO 


As you said about going club class next time, oh how I long for the days when I worked for the British Government in the Solomon Islands, when not only were all the flights free but they were always club class. Therein the longing becomes more acute, it is true that, what you never had, you don't miss but when you have had it you know what you are missing. However when retired you have to go for what you can afford. I will at least get to the MCG when I am over there, tell me Alby have you got a home test series while I am there or will I just have to watch Victoria play. I may just come and watch you one day. cheers Howzat!!!

Well I got it wrong my dear wife had not booked with Etiad she had actually booked with Malaysian Airways. I do hope that the pilot does not want to make a diversion to the Southern Indian ocean. I am trying to make that seem funny but there is still a little nervousness deep down. We have gone with Malaysian Airways on a number of occasions before without incident, I suppose that one must cling on to the old saying, "Lightening does not strike twice in the same place". The trouble is I know that saying to be untrue I have actually seen lightening strike the same building three times while sat on an undercover balcony in Singapore. (another freebie from the Government) Only the flights were free we had to pay for the hotels if we decided to break the journey home, we had 8 weeks holiday at the end of each academic year and we rarely spent more that two weeks of that back in England.
