This is a blessed spot, spoilt only by the people, in the central North Island of NZ.
|I just had a birthday and am inching closer to the pension. We do not know when our time is up so we just have to keep hoping. I certainly want to get some return on taxes I have paid over my working life. It is midwinter here and very dreary. The wind cuts through a person like a knife and we are getting a lot of rain plus snow on the hills. The world has gone mad with recent events and I am concerned about the Democrat party and its ravings in the US of A. Down here all we can do is mutter. On a brighter note my daughter is driving quite well now. She is a natural and drives to and from college. I am struggling with cadet recollections but a good friend is helping with editing.|
