The Stones first album was released the same year as I started work, 1964.
Sticky Fingers, one of their best, came out in 1971.
52 years later their new release, Hackney Diamonds, hit the shops globally today.
Can't wait to get to spinning.
I can't believe these old buggers are still at it. Shame about Charlie Watts, drummer of the Stones 1963-2021. He was a classy guy.

 A new government, All Blacks into the semi's and a catch up with old friends. Nice one.

Richard (left) turned 60 and invited some of his cycling mates along. It was great to chat, relive a few shared experiences and have a few beers.

Richard, Me, Brian and Brent. We did a lot of miles and a lot of racing together when the roads were way safer than now, and on Sundays, people slept in. Meaning we had the tarmac to ourselves from 6 till 10 in the mornings. Awesome part of my life.

The harbour bridge is still well worth a visit.
The changing skyline of Tauranga city. The two towers on the right are the new 'Farmers Building' that has been under white plastic for two or more years.

Our container wharf. The best in the country.
Then a beer at the end of a beaut day.

More Old Album

 From the 1950's

With my older sister who's about to turn 77!

We lived in an ex army hut but obviously still had birthday fun (sun in our eyes there mum) and we went to church. Yes we definitely did that for many years. Makes me really feel old but maybe the family will get a laugh.
