Letter Number four to Tara Murphy

Hi Tara
I have titled this letter number four but its only number four on this blog.  I have probably written over one hundred letters large and small to you.  I would love you to reply to any of my letters.  It's been almost five years now.  I am only trying to do my best at making some kind of reconnection with you.

Anyway, let's lighten things up a bit.  I have been working many hours lately and printing is at its busiest time coming up to Christmas.  Sometimes it feels like I just get home and it's time to go to bed and get up for work again.  Maybe that is a sign I need to go on a short holiday to get away and have some rest.

Not long now until Christmas is upon us and all the catching up with family will begin.  I have a busy time this year catching up with family and as you know your Grandfather lives in Rosebud and your Grandmother lives in Geelong and Lisa's parents live about two hours thirty minutes drive away.   So I have to split my travel time up between everyone at Christmas.

As in most cases I am the driver and Lisa and I take Kevin and Luis as they don't drive and I am sure they like to get chauffeur driven everywhere.  Although, Lisa always offers to drive but she can't reach the pedals in my car.  Its not the she is really short because she isn't it just my car seat won't come forward enough for her.

So to cut a long story short...this Christmas I am going to:

  1. Dad's in Rosebud
  2. Mum's in Geelong
  3. Lisa's parents house in Cobram
In between all that I will also be catching up with friends, work Christmas party and Lisa's family have a reunion party every year. 

I have also finally received my Led Zeppelin DVD the you helped pay for.   It took a while and thanks again for sending me the father's day present (Sanity Gift Card)

One other thing I bought recently was a BBQ and I had to put it together myself.   Took two hours but worth it in the end.  See images below.

Anyway I tried to keep this letter short but it got out of hand.

Love you and miss you so much
Dad

My new toy. Hope to have some good times on the balcony with friends and family.

To Tara Murphy. My week end in Cobram

Hi Tara
I have just come back from a great week end away in Cobram.  Its on the Victoria/New South Wales border.  Just having a relax and a bit of a look around.  Lisa and I go to many Opp shops to see if we can find a bargain or two.  There are many good things to pick up in the rural area's of Australia if you look around.

While I was there we experienced a big storm which turned into a mini tornado.  We saw some damage to houses and many trees down.  See picture gallery.

When we are in Cobram we like to go the Murray river and walk around.  Its a very beautiful place with lots of history to see.

One other funny thing that happened to Lisa and I on the weekend is a possum got into Lisa's apartment.   It was a ring tail possum and I had to try and get it out of the house.  It was a bit tricky at first as he didn't seem to want to go but he ended up walking back out the same door he came in.  You can also see the pictures in the photo gallery.

Any-way besides driving around the country side and working I haven't been doing anything else.   It would be great to hear from you Tara and how you are going?  It will be 5 years this New Years Eve since I had heard from you.

Hope to hear from you soon
Love you and miss you
Dad
