I guess "the boys" come to Sydney about twice a year. Barry turns 65 this year and lives in the hills outside Wauchope, and has done for well-nigh 30 years. Ross turns 60 this year and has lived in the same house in Newcastle for about 35 years. I am in the middle and, as readers of this blog will know, move at least annually. Dad will be 89 this year and has an older brother who will be 91. Of us all, Ross is the least healthy.
