To make the most of Von being in town, Paul put on an open house today. Most of us arrived at lunch time and there was a lot of food to go around. Just about all the gang from last night turned up -- plus Tracy and Simon. So several hours of relaxed chats were indulged in. I heard quite a bit from Von, which I enjoyed.
As happens from time to time she reminded me of something I did in the past which I had quite forgotten. She remembers my house at Gordonvale with particular fondness so she reminded me of a time there when I paid the kids to weed my pumpkin patch. The pumpkin vine there was a very vigorous one which spread right out and I rather admired it -- so I must have wanted to encourage it. Or maybe I just wanted to give the kids some pocket-money.
It seems that Davey was again too ill to come along but there was some idea that he might turn up that evening. He has a quite serious illness, which is particularly sad in one so young.
