One of the wonderful things about blogging is the lasting friendships I have made. Two friendships have been very close - and one of these friendships is with Denis of The Nature of Robertson. Denis lives in Robertson, NSW and blogs about his community. He is a a great naturalist and birds and plants - particularly little tiny orchids - are part and parcel of the blog. Denis and I do watch out for one another a little. So if one of us goes quiet and there is no known reason for it or we know that there could be a health issue (neither of us are getting any younger), we are in touch.
So it was yesterday. No emails had dropped into my box. Bit of a delay in posting to his blog. Hadn't heard of any trips or visits to be made. So I rang. Denis is not a well lad. He is laid up in bed. Last night he rang after watching the ABC news on television. An item had made him angry. Could I please do a guest post for him on The Nature of Robertson? A few brief instructions followed. I went off and composed the post. Rang him back, received approval, and published. Please visit the post here and you might like to leave an encouraging, get-well comment.
