FORTY ONE

Back in October 1968, I was sharing a house with my girlfriend, Kerrie, in Port Moresby, P/NG. Often Kerrie tried match making me with boys she met but I never liked any of them. One evening she came home and told me she had met a boy I would really like, he was a friend of her boyfriend. However, he had been sent to another part of New Guinea to do a job and will be back next month. Kerrie's boyfriend, Willy, also thought I would like his friend, Bill. Willy was sent to work on the same job as Bill and told him he had met a girl, who he would like. So Bill and I knew about each other before we met. We were both very nervous at the party where we knew we would meet for the first time.  Six months later we were married on the 10th May 1969.

41 years later we are still in love and celebrated our anniversary at Bondi Iceberg's Club for lunch.
