I know I've been very spasmodic this past year with blogging but I've done my best and to anyone who may still be checking out my blog (and I know who some of the faithful are) I would like to send you best wishes from Phil and myself (and Candy too of course) for a safe and happy Christmas.
When the new year of 2018 arrives I hope it will treat you all kindly for its whole 365 days. I will endeavour to stay in touch but I'm making no unbreakable promises. I am getting a tad old and that is the truth of the matter.
P.S. My thanks to the lady who telephoned me today to thank me for my blog. I am sorry I don't know your name but believe you said you live in Pemberton (a beautiful place in WA).
