It's working: this WARNING - plus the razor wire - keeps them away!


Elsewhere they have watches; at "Riverbend" we have time! Time to read a good book, time to watch a good movie, and time to just sit and watch the always-changing river. Add to this the recent "New Guinea weather" with its hot days, balmy nights, and softly falling rain, and a certain retired person on these premises is in absolute heaven.

Watching some of my favourite movies again - "Ring of Bright Water", "Storm Boy", "84 Charing Cross Road", and, for some mild excitement, "The Riddle of the Sands" - made for a peaceful end to the old year and an equally peaceful start to the new.

As you get older, you become less willing to buy the latest version of reality. So what's my wish for 2018? More of the same! Happy New Year!
