1966 today

Initial contact from Steve and re-union in Sydney certainly gave cause to reflect.  I realised had I had grown from an insecure skinny shti to an insecure but wiser skinny shti.

Definitely not career focused as a sailor (realised after 10 1/2 years that I had better find something different).  Did a better job after 22 years of policing. Now manage Defence contracts for a large security company these days.  Gave me a certificate for outstanding service on Thursday 27/5/04, so I must have learnt something.

Married to the one gorgeous lady for 29 years, which has been really good. Two off spring in their early twenties. Erina is in Spain at the moment.  Steven is living in Newcastle (has got the surfing bug).

I'm trying to reduce my wide range of commitments so that I can relax a little.  Really appreciate the efforts of Stephen, Wally, Mick and Ray. Good fortune and health to all scumbags and their families.
