SATURDAY 9 OCTOBER HEALESVILLE
John had been asked to play in one of Lilydale’s competition bowls sides today, so we drove to Lilydale.
Refuelled Truck – 71cpl.
I went for a walk around the Lake, then drove myself back to Healesville, where I cleaned the inside of the van. Had bought the papers on the way back, and read those, some, too.
Late in the afternoon, I picked up John from the Ferntree Gully Bowls Club, where they had played and we drove to his sister’s at Beaumaris. Together with another sister and her husband, and John’s niece and her husband, we had an excellent banquet meal at their favourite Chinese restaurant. It was a very pleasant evening.
What had been a humid day turned into a night of lightning and thunder storms, thus we had a tough drive back, through sheets of rain. It was 2.30am when we got back to the van!
John’s sore throat is much worse.
