This is a blessed spot, spoilt only by the people, in the central North Island of NZ.
Most of the time for me the glass is half empty. On rare occasions the glass is half full as with news of The Donald's activities.|
|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.
