WHAT'S IT LIKE TO BE HOME?


We had a fairly easy trip home from the Centre and kept moving. Went through Broken Hill so quickly (we actually slept at the Church of Christ on the hill) that we reached Dubbo on Friday instead of the planned Saturday.  The birdlife and the goats were in abundance as we motored along the fairly straight Barrier Highway.  
We had an ulterior motive in getting to Dubbo by Saturday. We wanted to attend THE WEATHER AND YOUR HEALTH by a good friend Bethany Simons. What a professional actor and playwright she has become. And she’s still such a beautiful and unaffected young lady. (Yeah, that's me with Bethany just before the show started.) She has taken her play all over Vic & NSW and also performed in WA and QLD. I believe she is or will be performing her play in Melbourne about now. Check out THE WEATHER AND YOUR HEALTH on Google.
Fay and I also managed to get to the Baptist Church, had a meal with Chris and Rhonda (Peta’s in-laws), a meal with Dicko and Sue, a coffee with the cyclists at Artology followed by another cuppa at Country Garden with the old Ratpak, got our car serviced by Peter & Greg at MidCity Motors at 22 Bourke St Dubbo and the caravan get new lights at Maccas Auto Electrician (thanks Shane & Ian). Fay did the op shops looking for a replacement glass plate for our caravan microwave. We stayed at Kinschers’ Colony Crescent Caravan Park. See manager below. 

From Dubbo, we made it to Molong and pulled up stumps at Ian (below) and Jane's pad (in the county.) Thanks for the warmth – in more ways than one.  And the eggs!

When we departed there we headed for Cowra where we caught up with Reids and friends Dave & Laurel Martin (ex Dubbo folk.) Both Daves are ex WWTC around 1959-60. Both were exceptional sportsmen so they headed off for a whack at golf just before we departed. Then Goulburn to catch up with Fay’s big sister Pat and then home to Cudmirrah by 6 pm Tuesday.
Today? Cycle into town, attend Bible study and have a walk down to Berrara and back through the bush (see picture). Oh, I did have a good sleep in!

Just about sorted out clothes, mail, the house etc.  Hey, we’re nearly back to normal.... whatever that is.
