Smile An entertaining web site...

I stumbled on this fascinating web site a year ago, and found lots of plain old fashioned entertainment reading the photo log the 91 year old site owner has put together. The chronicle of his walking journey is both captivating and inspiring, providing a look into an aspect of urban Australia most will never see. Hope you enjoy this as much as I have!

In brief
Alan Waddell was encouraged by his doctor to take up walking. After a while, repeating the same route every day became boring. So Alan Waddell decided to walk every street in his own suburb.
In December 2002, this idea of walking every street was expanded to include neighbouring suburbs and so his odyssey began.

In a manner of ill speaking, LOL... the knickers are catchy, ya think?

Hope I'm able to still get around when I'm 91, er, uh, if I make 90! At the rate of body deterioration when tiling, I'm questioning 80.
