  1. WIll be watching it on tv. 900 km is a bit too far for an old bloke to travel. I don’t care who wins, so long as the Blues come second… Cheers, Bobj.

    If meggsie has her way, he will. Cheers, Bobj.
  4. I did it as I felt a force to get another dog. The 'mourning' period seems the best way when young, but I don't think I will see the 100th year, which is 18 years away. The remarkable thing is the amount of vigour I have chasing after these two little mutts. Cheers, Bobj.
  5. The two are brothers from the same litter. The RSPCA did not want them to be separated, which was fine by me. It is amazing how quickly one can get attached to a dog. Cheers, Bobj.
  6. Last Friday, my little Lahsa Apso, Chlo, died at Age 15. On the following Monday, I went to the Mackay RSPCA shelter and adopted two 2 year old fox terriers. When I contacted my “daughter”, Katie. She told me that when she was talking to my wife, Jo that when Chloe died, , that Jo hoped for a foxy for our next dog. We have not been without some make of dog since we mwet, over 48 years ago. My new mutts, Titch, in the red harness and Shorty in the blue one. Jo died 7 months ago… Providence? Cheers, Bobj.

    Just can't settle here

    Not so…I was roped into showing the nurses how to fillet a barramundi and this young nurse hovered in the back. I asked if she could see what was happening. That was in Derby, WA. We were married A couple of years later. Cheers, Bobj.
  9. Both, thanks. Cheers, Bobj.
  10. Another wonderful spectacle. I taped it as rugby league was on. Saw the whole performance and it reminded me of Queen Salote of The Friendly Islands, in her open carriage, waving to the crowds in the. Pouring rain.That was June 2nd 1953. Simply, brilliant. Cheers, Bobj.

    Returning to UK after aged 60

    The day you were born, I was preparing to emigrate to Australia. I went from Bradford to London to Australia House to query why they had given my mate his sailing orders, but not mine as we applied the same day. Upshot was we left England in September that year. And I am still loving life in this wonderful country. Cheers, Bobj.

    Cost of Living.

    I am a pensioner, have been fir 24 years and I find it so very easy. Having said that, I have spent good money on 20 solar panels. Now, my ‘leccy bill is virtually nil and that is with an aircon going about 6 hours a day over the past 6 months. Biggest bill was $18 for a quarter. Jo and I saved for a relaxing retirement and that has been achieved, plus the fact we were too far from the city to go to restaurants. Neither of us were drinkers, so alcohol was never bought. My only big payments are the home and contents insurance and the vehicle running costs. My food bill averages $70 a week Because of our savings, everything I now buy is paid cash on the barrel, such as a new washing machine and soon, another aircon in another bedroom. Cheers, Bobj.
  13. Nearly 60 years ago @HappyHeart The photo was taken when I lived in Derby, WA Andddd, I still have the same legs! Cheers, Bobj

  15. Reminds me of the Mr and Mrs America who were on a driving holiday. They were staying at the same motel as I in Moree, NSW and complained that all they saw on their travels was road-kill. The motel manager, who gave them breakfast at 8.30 each morning suggested they go put at 5.30 instead. This they did next morning, only to have their hire car wrecked by a big boomer. The police took them back to the motel . Cheers, Bobj.
