This is a blessed spot, spoilt only by the people, in the central North Island of NZ.
|This is a nice time of year in Taupo. Days are warm and nights still cool but we have some days minimum 8 deg overnight. Our elections are less than a month away and there is not much interest so far. At least we are back in level 1 now except for Auckland. These are difficult times and our small circular distribution business has taken a heavy hit with less volumes. Others are in a worse state. We need to be thankful for each day we keep moving forward.
Sharon and I are going to visit 2 old army friends of mine from Rhodesian days. They have both settled in NZ. We will also visit the Rhodesian Army museum just recently opened in Tauranga. I was nervous at first due to my recent illness but am now looking forward to it. It will be a nice day trip and around 2 hours each way.
I am now on reduced muti (medicine) for headaches and feel much better. This has been a nasty time but better times are hopefully ahead.
Has anyone heard from Bill aka View from my back porch? I enjoyed contact with him but know he had health issues. If someone can update me i would be appreciative.
