Farewell to a Good Mate

This life of retirement has meant that we have made a lot of new friends in our new found pursuits. The obvious fact is that we won’t be lucky enough to know them for a whole lifetime. Perhaps that is why seniors laugh a lot. They are laughing at the ups, the downs and the inevitabilities.

Today we say farewell to a very dear mate, whom we were lucky to meet when we joined our caravan club. A mate who possessed the quintessential laid-back dry Aussie humour that this culture is known for. A man who deserved a gold medal for his humour, who unwittingly provided me with many stories for this blog. A man who, when everyone else was enjoying a good pub meal, was known to say “I’m only here for the beer!”

Thanks for the memories Trev and may you long be remembered by your friends on the road.
