Introducing myself

G'day, I was looking for a Discussion Group so that I will be able to receive help. I was born far too early in 1941. Long before all of this technology. I preferred the days when you wanted to turn on your T V. You had an On-Off switch. Now you have to search for the remote!!!!
There are so many things now that I do not understand what they are.
I was born in England and worked on the P&O Passenger Liners. I was a Chef. I enjoyed being at sea. In the Galley, there were about 20 Chefs all about my age. Mainly we sailed from London to Australia. After 5 years at sea. I fell in love with Australia. I came out to Australia in 1969 as a 10 pound Pom.
I have never looked back. My first job was as the Head Chef at Orchid Beach Resort, Fraser Island. The most beautiful Island in the World. I worked on the Island for 5 years. I purchased a property just outside Maryborough Qld. Married and had 4 children. I worked in Maryborough as a Catering Manager and now I am retired.
I am almost 80 but still enjoy working on the property. My daughter called mum on the phone. She asked if she could talk to dad. My wife said " He is on the roof cleaning the guttering. That evening after tea my daughter phoned and got right up me. Telling me that at my age I should not be going things like that. I told her that mum would not climb the ladder!!!

Welcome to the forum. I am 74 and I clean out our gutters cause husband is too fat to climb a ladder. It is what it is. 😂
