Day 11/90: A new Peter, Samuel Peter Kennedy 27/11/14, 3.49pm 9.1lbs 53 cm

Our very good friends Greg and Chelsea Kennedy, of the Perth Kennedy’s said a while back that if they had a boy they would give him Peter after me as a middle name. At the time I thought that was a pretty nice thing to think about but did not dwell. Well Samuel Peter is now part of the future. What a great honour to have friends do that. Elizabeth feels like an Aunty, Mitch like he has a little brother and me well it is just special. People get to live on in memories but there is one person who like it or not will carry a bit of my memory in a unique way. Imagine he will probably live to be 100 and I bet will be fluent in Chinese by the age of 5. I find it also exciting to think about the relationships that may form around the edges of this over time. I will post a photo when I get one.

Spent yesterday driving up to Echuca to farewell Patsy another great person. It was a fantastic drive, beautiful day and a really good funeral. She would have been very happy a long and interesting life well explained with mirth, humour, respect and sadness.

Still have not heard from the PM re a chat but am making some background moves on it. I don’t have much time so will need to push hard whilst not creating angst for him. Tomorrow checking into Crown Towers with Elizabeth for the day/night to relax and maybe polish my blackjack skills. I am feeling lucky!

  1. Congratulations to Samuel Peter’s family… the next generation. May they be afforded Dignity, in all aspects of their lives. No surprise our PM has not responded. Many of our current politicians seem bereft of any moral or ethical fibre. I continue to be in awe of you, Peter. My generation thanks you for what you are striving to achieve. Deborah James
