by Arthur McKenzie
Arthur McKenzie now lives at the War Vets in Narrabeen. He has been there for the last four years having lost the love of his life, Joy, to cancer six years ago. With the help of his daughter Sharon he found this haven for the over 55’s and hasn’t looked back since. Life took on a new hue. Busy in his workshop along aside his friend Keith he made himself useful again. His life changed once more after meeting Pam and their relationship enhanced both their lives. Being an author Pam suggested Arthur might like to tell his story for his friends and family especially his grandchildren and now great granddaughter. The country boy is certainly now a city boy but his love of country is never far from his mind. Returning to Wingham and the Bulga Plateau recently with Pam the memories of his childhood came flooding back to his time working on the dairy farms and riding his horse to school each day. We hope you enjoy reading his story and realise what a lovely man he is and that there is a lot to learn from his experiences.
