Re: friends from Australia

Hi Bill!
It was good to see your response and discover there is somebody out there.
Nevertheless the phrase 'flogging a dead horse' springs to mind, despite your attempts earlier this year to re-awaken some life in the old beast.



Re: friends from Australia (and elasewhere)

It's right, about the'dead horse' Mate. Another phrase that springs to mind is 'All Quiet on the Western (Eastern?) Front'...

Maybe we should emulate the Arabs by 'Folding our tents and silently steal away..' (Longfellow, I believe, or maybe Kipling..?)
