Good to be back

G'day fellow Nomads, been awhile since I have posted or visited site, had a few issues with health, computer and tow vehicle. All good now back in Tassie for a short while but the weather since coming back in November has been dismal at best, lots of wind, rain and cold, cant wait to get on the road again and some warmer weather. Trip last year will give me memories lasting for years, 16,000 klms, nearly as much in money but some very good times of visiting places where I have worked and visited before I retired. The gulf country, the Kimberlys, the desert, the heat, the flies, the coldness in the south have all added to a worthwhile and great experience. This year travel will not be as great but will be heading for Queensland in April. Have done abit of mining on the body to remove stones which caused immense pain and health issues in the gulf. Bore water for us southerners can cause issues especially if high in calcium. Cant wait to again hit the road and join the many who are living the dream.

Whilst on the road put pen to paper when bored, hope you like the poem, Time fly's by.

Cheers and happy and safe travels

Maybe I done it the wrong way, try this way

Time Flys By

By Kevin L Fairbrother

As we grow older, time just seems to fly

We welcome the new day and in no time we are

Looking at the night sky

We forget to do what we had just done

We cant do what we used to, but try

We have to watch our diet both day and night

A night sleep is always interrupted

Cause the pills we take keep us awake

And the bladder, well, just wont wait

The past we wondered how we coped

Raising a family with a full time job

Now its a full time job just remembering

What we need and what someone tells us

We have no need of a fancy watch

For time flys by and a watch, just wont keep up

Crowds of people, create to much noise

We look for somewhere quite to hide

 Spend our time saying sorry, I did not hear

The younger generation dont understand

For they challenge with what would you know

The past is so different from what is now

Growing old is a race to the grave

A race that we just cant win

As the time just flys by
