I wish to thank all those members who came to Alexandra today to present me with a Telemachus award. Several of those present I had not seen for one reason or another for some time, and I appreciate their presence. It was indeed a thrill to receive this award for something which over the years I had fully enjoyed.
Time marches on and at some stage riding has to finish and move on to other activities, which I am trying to do by expanding my other major activity that of bird watching and photography. I am certainly no expert in this latter but enjoy getting out into the bush and doing the best I can. Bush walking is a great activity, and I try to get out as much as weather and other activities allow.
I must admit the car and caravan are somewhat more comfortable than the tent and when it rains I can put on the coat and put up the umbrella, but I still miss the bike.
Many thanks to you all.
