just a chat

It’s about 8:30pm here and the past couple of days have been good ones. We are having beautiful sunsets – and that time between day and night, for just a minute, when the birds stop their squawking/chirrupping and the crickets are silent is just wonderful. I have to say ‘hi’ to Cotton. Just got off messenger with sister-in-law. Won’t say her name ’cause I haven’t asked permission. She and her family are sounding fine and dandy. My family – up in Queensland – are doing fine. So I suppose you could say, what with me in New South Wales annd family in Victoria and Queensland I am pretty much surrounded with kin. Well bye friends for now. Wish all of you well.
