After 43 years Dunny has retired!

Well that's a coincidence - same for me.
I've slipped right into it but the other half seems to be suffering a bit :) .

Fellas in October I will have been retired for 15 years.
Let me assure you if health remains reasonable it only gets better than at the start of your retirement.
Enjoy the years to come.
cheers RICHO

My other half is struggling a bit too. Must be catchy?

No I am still handling my rod and my little white balls as regularly as possible. I think we need to catch up sometime Andy?

Another yakker (ex/part time yakker :oops: ) would be interested in trying a "reef" up that way if you wish to "point" ;) it out and have him tag along. By the way he normally catches zilch :lol:

No worries Steve when the testicles melt from my icicles. I mean when the icicles melt from my testicles.

Would be good Steve - always enjoy your company and I've noticed that Dunny is much better behaved when there is more than one companion !
