Not a bad weekend despite the Sun disappearing and the rains arriving. Rosemary and I met people at the Soccer club(Assoc Football) on Friday and again on Saturday after visiting one of our three ex daughters in law whom we have happy times together with our two Grand daughters Tamara, and Jacinta who was celebrating her 13th birthday. Those two girls are deadly gorgeous.
We met the son of our KGV( SHIP)assoc /sec, David T (The Keyboard Player with the Top notch band; playing at the club, who informed me his father's 84th birthday was on the Sunday and would I write a message for him, duly done it read; "Wishing you a Happy Birthday on your Fourth 21st", Phil rang me about an hour ago and we had a good chat.
Today Harry L my dear friend and chairman of our Naval Assoc phoned early to inform me that three more of the KGV Ships Assoc U/K had crossed the bar, all of whom were young kids of 19 when WW2 ended all of us with 3 or more years of service in WW2. it is difficult to remember every one in a crew of 1800, But one of the nicer blokes I remember well was Peter Gavin, Lt/Cdr Retired. VALE PETER.
Ten years in retro there were 52 members of the OZ KGV Assoc, Alphabetically I topped the list, and still do with just ten following, Five are older than me and I the last of the 1945 aged 19 year olds.
The good news depending how you feel about me is "I Ain't Going Yet". It has been decided that, in four to five weeks I will be given a OP day, in order to fix my ballooning Aorta Valve, I have been informed that it is elective surgery and although not life threatening, I must still apply caution when crossing the road.
Well that's it for now, the storm outside has spoofed the TV so it seems We will be involved in chatter for the remainder of the evening, better still a shower then bed. Back soon Vest.

The last three of the dozen or so books I had a few days ago; are staying put with me. One of them is spoken for, the remaining two wrapped and saved. I shall not be wasting my precious time making pennies from selling books. All future sales will be from the publisher or B&N and Amazon. info is available from me for purchasing details. The two people who failed to send their address, after several requests, need not bother, I have no time for ditherer's, particularly number stackers.
