Five Minutes to Midnight

The average life-expectancy of an Australian male is 81.5 years. In view of my proximity to that lapidary age, I thought it was time to record those parts of my life as yet unchronicled. These reminiscences are bookended by the 2021 recollections of my wife Jo and myself, who count ourselves fortunate to be based in Adelaide, one of the world’s safest and most liveable cities.
