Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 17 - September 22nd

Sunday 22nd Sept dawned awfully nice. The usual Battn parade in the morning but the rest of the day spent very lazily.

Friday 22nd Sept rather nice here in Toowoomba. Suprising, considering the drought and water restrictions, how green the place is and how good the gardens are for the Carnival of Flowers.

Anniversary: On this date, 21 years ago, was our traditional Sundanese wedding. Lots of people streaming through mother-in-law's house all day. Bruddy hot in the heavy sarong and jacket - my son ditched his early in the day, clever boy.
