There is very little vindictivness in old westwind. My Mother did not raise that type of child. However flashes of madness can intrude upon my normal polite self if I feel emptied out, ( read gutted ), by a poste less than supportive. OK. I can be tough. Five % of the time. The other 95 % I'm a pussy cat. Which brings me to the point of this Thread. ( HE HE HE ). I feel as though I must have upset adelady. Her silence on my Threads and Postes is a concern to me as a fellow Australian interested in Chooks. And Bunyips. adelady, I humbly apoligise if I have been out of line and caused you some annoyance. It will probably happen again, but hopefully not to often. I need your supportive comments on a Thread of mine, Australian Excise Taxes etc in the Economy Forum. To advise Paleo about Conditions in Australia. Would be most appreciated. Oh, by the way adelady, I have been happily married ( to the same woman, God bless Her ), for 57 years. Well, when I say happily married, no pond is without a ripple or two. westwind.
