Hawks down under.

Post by Pinky »

Hi there,
Just hoping none of our Aussie Hawks are too close to any of the terrible fires.
I hope you and yours are all safe and well.

Hi Mick, no, I only know of Ric in Brisbane and Robin, son of an Ex-Bandmaster, from Benghazi, who lives in Perth. (Reminds me I still have his copy of "The Emperor's Chambermaids" which he lent me well over 25 years ago. Must take it back, but don't know if he is still at the same address. Being retired I rarely go north of the Swan River nowadays. Must make a special journey to return it.)
