10th March 1973
Forty-three years today.
Strewth?! What happened to the time ?
Start to married life:
one VROOM VROOM super charged V8 Valiant ex-police chase vehicle
a home owned by the bank
refrigerator, bed and a carload of gear
2 mortgages and a personal loan
one wage earner – income $50/week
one university student
43 years later:
a VROOM VROOM ute and another little not-a-ute
(and the kids’ 4 cars – driveway looks like a used car yard)
Oh – and a 53 foot ferrocement boat too but that’s in the water
MUCH bigger, freehold home
2 kids, 2 girlfriends and a dog
LOTS of stuff – at least a shipping container load
2 self-funded retirees
It’s been a hell of a journey so far!
Happy anniversary to TRH
