Our leaky social colander


Iwas quite put out when our favourite dentist Grant Brodie retired. He was so gentle and yet so efficient that he had become almost a friend and our six-monthly visit to Ulladulla part of our social colander. However, after two appointments with his replacement Liam Pearce I am very pleased to report that he is just as good, possibly even better (if that is possible).

My next appointment is for the 18th of May, just a week after our trip to Sydney to visit another friend, Professor Clark at the LIFEHOUSE, who removed those messy cancer cells from my throat almost four years ago.

We'll drive as far as Wollongong to park the little FORD Focus at our friends' place, Reg and Kini, before catching the train to Sydney. After my appointment, we keep travelling north by train to the riverside town of Brooklyn which I had visited - what? eight years ago? - click here.

I've booked into another favourite of mine, the "The Anglers Rest" - never mind the missing apostrophe! - and we'll take the Riverboat Postman to relive some of the magic of the movie "Oyster Farmer".



Then it's back to our own river magic, another six-monthly dental in August, another six-monthly in September with my dermatologist, and another six-monthly with my radiologist in November. And that just about sums up everything there is to see on our leaky social colander.

Was it the Dalai Lama who, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man! Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health" ?
