No, I’ve not done it Slim ….I was over there as part of my studies ….so we only made it as far across as Louisiana , and up as far as Virginia ….but we did drive along the Appalachian trail

What were you studying?

I remember watching 'Gone with the wind' when I was young and wanting to be Scarlett ....wearing glamorous dresses
Bought the dvd in the 90's which had an intermission cos of it being a 4 hour film.........sat for ages waiting for it to start the second half, not realising I had to flip the disc

I always wanted to….



1. Be able to draw

2. See the northern lights

3. Go on a round the world cruise

4. Go for a month at a posh spa

5. Visit Singapore (for my dad).

Last cruise my Dad was on, his companion came off on a stretcher, plus he spent the following two weeks in bed
They completely missed seeing any of Australia except from the balcony of their cabin because of being unwell.

Don't think I'd like to go on a cruise...all those people

Good grief Slim . Yes , I wouldn’t want to go on a cruise these days , but I wish I had while the going was good .

I'm sorry to hear that

Could you not go with a relative or friend?
We could always do the Exmouth river cruise when you come to visit

The only friend I could persuade to go would my best friend ….we used to go on some lovely trips ….but sadly life circumstances have put that on hold for the foreseeable future ……and anyway , tbh I am not sure how I’d feel going without Mr B . But a cruise down the Ex sounds good .
