I have taken time away from here because I've been enjoying time with the family. Dad has kicked the bucket, which is sad but good too. I say 'kicked the bucket' to make light. Anyone will tell you, Don was a mighty man. We were lucky to have him as the cornerstone of our family for so long. And even now he's gone, he's in our hearts. I owe my wanderlust to him, and my stubborness. Dad looked life in the eye. So to anyone who is missing anyone, my heart is with you. Life is precious stuff. Here we are with Myrtle the dog on the Camber in Southsea. I'd just sailed my boat round from North Wales and Dad came to greet me.
