    Cricket World Cup 2019

    Yep, fully air conditioned tents...Tie the tent flaps back! Oh, and hurricane lamps for when the generator was turned off at 10 pm. All written down in ‘Reminiscing’. Cheers, Bobj.

    An inspiration

    Makes one wonder how some people can say that they are bored when this bloke can do all that without sight and sound. As you say, an inspiration. Cheers, Bobj.
  3. Stufftif...but there is a film on tv tonight on ch 5 3 @ 6.30; when I first saw it, I cried. Yes, I cried! I was aged 3 and Bambi was lost...My word! That was 75 years ago... Promise not to cry when I watch it tonight. Cheers, Bobj.

    Cricket World Cup 2019

    Had a little smile on that...The foreman of Main Roads came out to our tent camp 29 miles out from Broome, WA(1964) and informed us a cyclone was threatening. . The camp boss yelled out, "Batten down boys, batten down". We had 17 inches of rain but no heavy wind to blow the tents away. Water was pouring through the camp and everyone had their meagre belongings on the beds, but all the bedding was wet. Cheers, Bobj.

    D Day Landings

    @newjez, I read a bit about Anzio and can understand why, now. Not a very good win, by all accounts due to some rather egotistical generals... Cheers, Bobj.

    State Of Origin

    As @Toots wrote. Only Qld and NSW play NRL, WA is trying/thinking of a second intro. Both WA and SA fielded teams some years ago, but the lack of”bums on seats” lead to their demise. Not too sure if the governing body would accept any more teams. Cheers, Bobj.

    Finance in older age

    My thoughts exactly, @rammygirl. Enjoy what you have and have what you enjoy. When the weather is fine, I spend most mornings sat on a rock with a fishing rod and enjoying looking at the Whitsunday Islands. A simple life, that's my philosophy...Why make it complicated by trying to keep up with the Joneses, or worrying about who is going to rule the world? Cheers, Bobj.

    Finance in older age

    Retired 20 years ago at age 58, on a pension of sorts...Centrelink...until age 60, then Centrelink realised that people over 60 don’t get jobs, so got a pension. Some of my super went into buying shares and quite a hap, hap happy bloke, now... I urge all of you to make sure you have no debts at retirement age; we were fortunate in that we only had a short mortgage time, 4 years. Ergo, no outstanding debts. Cheers, Bobj.

    what are you doing right now?

    Parley, Parley, perlease! Go north and open your culinary senses to reef fish; coral trout, golden snapper, tuskfish, emperors, mangrove jacks and the pelagic speedsters, the mackerel clan... Cheers, Bobj

    what are you doing right now?

    Bigger, generally, up to 40 lb and superb eating. Most fishos in the 'know' prefer these to barramundi! Australian salmon are only just edible...IF you smoke them. Only found north of about Fraser Island. Cheers, Bobj.
