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!
