How ya doin? Thought I would drop you a line. Its end of Nov. Now, probably getting cold in Idaho....sorry about that! Just the opposite here as you would know. Tamworth is a area that gets very hot in the summer..we have already had a few days over 100, so not looking forward to that, but what can ya do eh?
We are still hangin out at the local gun club where we have been for the last 13 months, but change is in the making (by the time you read this, we'll be moved) as we are moving back to the little town of Manilla, where this adventure in Tamworth started. A lady has some property for us to live at with her as the man that was there has moved on, and the fact that here at the gun club another couple have set up camp and we are not really fans of having 'neighbors'….so we decided to go help this gal out, think she is in her '70's and lives alone and seems to be a nice gal, we'll see.
WE will stay there til sometime in 2017, when Jackie retires. Plans are then to go back 'over the mountain' to a place called 'Glouschester' and look for a house there. Travelin dazes will end as far as the motorhome, the dream is over for us, this rig is just to old to go out there and risk things that can go wrong and cost an arm and a leg if ya break down (again). So, we'll be satisfied with where and what we have done for the last 3 years.
Still have'n fun with my music, play at pubs now and then and do a bit of 'busking' in the area, which keeps me going. Sometimes , I wonder why I do it...hahahaa, but its still fun and I love playin ye ol guitar. I bought an Aussie made one (called Maton)..and damn ,it’s a great guitar. Won't be getting rid of it for sure....kinda like a 'willie' guitar, is getting some good wear marks on it...and makes it MINE...LOL!
Jackie is still workin most days as a cleaner..she really don't have to, but she likes her job so she keeps going..not sure if she will still do it when we move, is up to her, she'll have a 30 min drive to keep coming to Tamworth to work. I am drawing a 'old age pension' from Australia along with the U.S. one, makes it a bit easier, its about the same amount as I get from U.S. I'm planning on a trip back there in July again, we'll see how it goes but hope to get there.
Australia is really a wild place, very different for sure, do enjoy most of it...just don't like how much it cost to be here, wages good, but still don't make up for the costs, would be like livin in California I guess. Oh well, the medicare is good and going to doctor is nearely free, a good thing to have when ya get older eh? Im not doin too bad I guess, just the damn Diabetes thing (type 2) which I take a couple a pills for each day, also take a pill for high blood pressure, so far, its all workin. Good ol medicine eh?
Well, that’s about it for now, it’s a saturday morning, things are quiet, home alone, Jackie gone to work til noon(its 8am now) so were just surfin the 'net as usual. Love hav ing it as it keeps me upto date on things happening in the world and I have some good friends to talk to online....
You take care of yourself ok? Hope your family is keeping you on your toes! I'm sure they are. Keep on truckin,but will be glad to see you retire from that guy. Cheers and love from us down under..... Rattlesnake Willie....(lol)
