Gra Nomad Wanderings

It's approaching summer.... damn, it's 32 degrees today! That IS summer in Australia!

Cricket comes on the TV. Fay loves the cricket season. The 2nd test begins tomorrow in Hobart, Tasmania. Aust v Sri Lanka.

Fay has a heap of jobs that have to be done... always just before a cricket test is gonna be on TV. So, if I get the chores done I'll be able to sit and watch cricket uninterrupted! So, Fay gets the jobs done! Clever bugger isn't she? Yeah, she loves it when the cricket test is gonna be on TV.... so today I've been on the whipper snipper, doing the round-up, putting washing on the line and taking it in, postage jobs, office cleaning/tidying, bike maintenance, a bit of housework, a bit of gardening, cars washed, some correspondence cleared away and garage tidied a tad.

Yeah, she is quite a gal. We notch up 40 years of marriage on 30 Dec. Got any ideas of how I might celebrate such an occasion? I have one trick up my sleeve but I'm keeping that VERY QUIET at the moment.

Don't worry, she doesn't read the GRANOMAD!!!

You got all of that done in one day? C'mon, that's extremely hard to any unmarried brothers?

You surely lead an interesting life!! So tell me where did you meet this amazing woman, was it love at first site?

It certainly wasn't love at first sight Dana! We spent 2 years at a live-in college as we trained to become teachers. We never spoke to each other the whole 2 years! Can you imagine that? Made up for it since. In the second year of our teaching careers, Fay was sent to a small town called Moulamein in SW NSW and I was sent to a community (VERY small) just 20 miles away. That's where it all began 40 years ago.

How was your thanksgiving? Mine was great, I am thankful for so so many things and one of them is you! You have been a blessing to me and many others, thanks always for the encouragement and just a glimpse of your life and what God is doing. Thank you!

Let's hope there's not a cricket test on the day of your anniversary, because, with such a high pressured day before, to catchup, you'll be no good for even a celebration on the lounge.
But 40 years together deserves a huge tick, and what Bernie and I did for ours, was go out for lunch, then went to a movie and held hands, as we did on our first date nearly 41 years ago. Queston is, can I remember the movie title?
