Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?
No, I can’t recall that ever happened to us. I don’t drive as you know but David was always careful to fill up before the petrol got too low. Naomi is the same. David and I did once run out of oil on a holiday road trip. The car was running badly so we stopped in a small country town. I asked him “Have you checked the oil recently?” He checked it and sure enough that was the problem. We bought some more and all was well. I knew this because whenever Naomi and I would go on a road trip together she was always meticulous about checking her oil at every petrol stop.
Which are better: black or green olives?
For me neither. I don’t like olives at all.
If you were a great explorer, what would you explore?
I don’t think I would care to endure the hardships of the pioneers who discovered most of the known world. However, if I were a more adventurous traveller I would love to explore the remoter parts of China off the tourist trail.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful that I have a nice new kitchen door that works and that I now have catches on my old wooden windows and all my doorknobs work again. This week the weather is quite warm, the last burst of summer perhaps. We are planning to open the Op Shop on Saturday for people who can’t get there on weekdays and we’re hoping we’ll have a good day. Other than that I hope for a quiet week.
