    Default Sorry for months absence shipmates

    Had a few problems recently. First after many consultations confirmed cancer of right lower lund. Had removed at Gold Coast Private Hospital and after seriously checking the entrails of the removed lung part, operation declared a success. 3 different cancers found in wreckage. Hopefully no flotsam.
    Great bricklayer at GCPH and had rally good smoko's morning and afternoons. Best were the chocolate donuts.
    Home one day then Gold Coast University Hospital where found and hopefully cured a gastric ulcer. Worst catering mob ever sailed with. Reckon even easy going Manchester crew would have had the cook off.
    Home now and walking a bit slower.

    Colin mate, you were in good hands there some very good hospitals in Queensland.
    As a Cancer survivor I can understand your situation, though mine was not as rough as yours, but give it time and you will be sailing again.
    Never ever give up, it was caught in time and there is nothing better than that.
    Happy daze John in Oz.
