The Brisbane bionic man

A happier moment just days before the fall.
We had asked the resort to serve him a
bottle of red to celebrate his birthday


It's been six weeks already since my friend Manfred Richter entered Brisbane's Princess Alexandria Hospital after his disastrous fall at the Hideaway Island Resort in Vanuatu.

They've put a titanium plate into his right hand and are still deciding what to do about his hip. If it's another operation, it'll be another six weeks!

Practising his German 'Gruß'

Orange juice comes in strange bottles

I've just spoken with him on the 'phone. He's not a happy Vegemite and can do with all the moral support he can get.

Good health is merely the slowest rate at which you die.
