That's waaaaaaay too long, isn't it...?!? Is it? I don't know...
Tis in someways interesting that there's still a small handful of faithful readers that have kept coming back, right since the earliest times. Interesting. Some have moved on - such is life. One has actually passed away, sadly.
Thank you tho. I honestly do appreciate you stopping by.
"Raven", who I met online waaaaay back in c. late 2001/early 2002, and I have kept in regular touch over all this time. We've physically met facer-to-face quite a few times, her and her family, and I've stayed with her and her great family on a few occasions, up there in Brisvegas. We share the same kinda warpo sense of humour. Yay.
Just last night she sent me a text, letting me know that they're moving to Warwick, in southern rural Queensland... a real sea-change, albeit 150 kms from the ocean.
Warwick and my hometown are really quite similar, being rural regional centers. So yeah... I truly consider it a bold, positive move for their family to relocate to a lovely place like Warwick. I spent some of my time when I used to travel a lot doing children's teaching (about 400 years ago... sigh) at a big old house and camp center at Warwick, "Kingswood" (no, not the car...).
Plus it's like 2 hours closer to here for me! wOOt.
Interesting... the Christian Mission I used to work with years' ago (that "Kingswood" used to be part of) now no longer exists (it's been condensed, by the looks of it, and lost a zillion really good people along the way, and 98% of its 'soul' as well. Sad. Very very sad. Arthur Knight, I salute you! Wherever you may be nowdays)... I know it sadly imploded in a dramatic and really negative way a few years ago. Seems like they refuse to change their way of doing things at all... strange cats... strange... "All rip-roaring-ready to go for the 1950's..." Twas a bizarro time-warp, albeit a lovely one at the time (back at the turn of the decade).
Peas be with ewe
