The road to "guess where" ... paved with good intentions! 

Once again, my best laid plans of posting on my blog early this week, were shot to flames. I had guests in The Bunker over the weekend. Please see my update here.

Once they'd checked out I motored up there with my mop, bucket, cleaning products and fresh linen. Before work that morning I had cleaned the unit and changed the linen before setting up the props for a cheese and wine board to post on my blog.

Back at the shop, I washed the shelves and floor, and while this was drying, I set up my display on the veranda. 

In between networking with the veranda visitors, I set about  meeting my Probus Newsletter deadline. This was Tuesday afternoon.  I enjoyed writing this newsletter immensely. The June meeting's speaker spoke about his experiences as a Private Military Contractor in Iraq. He was incredibly soft spoken and humble stating that his mission during his 13-year stint in the Middle East was not to make war but to protect lives.

He acted as a bodyguard for VIP’s, sheiks, engineers and construction workers who were involved in projected to rebuild the country after the 2003 war. 

A most thought-provoking talk.
