I’m Over There In The White Fiat!

A corny joke told hundreds of times already but one that’s rather apt for the Hamilton Motorhome Show. Although my van is silver, not white and also not in this photo. We have been to the show for the last two years, but this year Sarah had decided that since we weren’t buying a new… Read More I’m Over There In The White Fiat!

Downtime – Keeping Busy

When I retired in 2017, I figured that would be the end of my working career, but after spending 4 months in the South Island in early 2018, I returned home to find myself at something of a loss as to what to do. I looked back at what I had done over the previous… Read More Downtime – Keeping Busy
