I fly out early this morning for Australia. Because of all the time I have been away over these last few weeks, coupled with the terrible phone lines and my sick computer, I am unable to put that many posts into draft, so I will leave you with a long post and hope you will pop back and visit me on my return on July 21.
I will celebrate my 12 month anniversary while I am away. Gosh time flies when you are slumped for months over a hot computer and cold phone lines!!! I have been unsure what I should post to celebrate, so I have put down some links to my favourite posts over the 12 months ........

I had trouble getting into my room the first night at the hotel in Goroka, so the desk clerk sent for security to help me with the lock. It was unable to be fixed and I ended up in another room.
“To shoot rascals!” he replied vehemently.
“Oh,” said I, “Do you have a problem with rascals round here?”
“Oh yes, they come and steal things.”
“Do you shoot them with your bow and arrow?”
Again he looked at me as though I was really weird. “Yes.”
“Where do you shoot them…..in the leg?” I asked hopefully.
“Wherever I can,” he said quite smugly.
“Oh….have you shot many rascals?” I asked timidly.
“Yeah lots,” he answered quite gleefully.
