|Hullo each and everyone. Now evening and I have just had my tea.. Been a long day and had to leave early this morning to attend the memorial service at Caloundra. I was out of the house by 8am having fed the dogs and self and also the chooks and done the washing up. |
Drove the 60 miles to Caloundra and was there in time for a cuppa tea before the service at the headland at 10am.....The time we were told to be their......Nobody else turned up until 1045. Service at 11am. Sunny and quite warm if you could find a way to stay out of the sneaky chilly wind.
Not saying I am fat, but two ladies and six schoolkids sheltered behind me!
I was home by 2.30pm after a stop at the local for a beer and a sandwich.
I did not go for drinks with the lads as I had such a long way to drive home.
Pleasant day and although the numbers were down, the service in remembrance of those medical teams and the Nurses who died because one Japanese Submarine commander did not recognise the Convention for hospital ships and rescue craft. He torpedoed it just of Morton Island near Brisbane in the middle of the night, even though she was fully lit and had a huge Red Cross on the sides of the ship.
The ships name ’AHS Centaur’
Tomorrow morning will be much the same, but this time I have further to go and it is for a meeting of the RSL District and it is concerning the Constitution and the rules governing our organisation. Boring stuff, I am afraid, but necessary for the safe running of the Returned Services League of Australia, Queensland State, Incorporated. I will be home later from that meeting due to the nature of the argumentative committee and the members who love the sound of their own voices. (Did I say that!)
Have a good day everyone and stay safe.....
