Diane's blog records life in the slow lane

Blog_Image Diane Bohlen’s Adventure Before Dementia blog is a homely and warm place to visit. Diane blends spare prose, often with a PNG theme, and great pictures. You can visit ABD here.

“There are people all over Australia who used to work and live in Papua New Guinea,” Diane writes in her latest post. “Some of them have joined the Papua New Guinea Association of Australia. We sometimes get together to rekindle friendships, reminisce and discuss ideas for the future. Colin (Mr Mellow Yellow) organised a lunchtime get together at Sofitel Hotel in Brisbane. He arranged for us to meet in the Whistle Stop Bar at Central Station. Then we adjourned to the restaurant for a buffet lunch.

“When we all had our fill we went to the coffee lounge and discussed ideas about the future objectives of our Association. Among other things we would like to strengthen the civil relationship between the people ofAustralia and Papua New Guinea. After coffee it was time to roll our big bellies home.”

Thanks for the kind words about my blog. I have a slight mistake it should read (Mr Mellow Yellow) not the reverse.
