August 21, 1979: Bill looks back

November 13, 2017

Time turns by slowly and peacefully for Bill Reid and Topsy.

As the sun moves its rays further around the verandah of "Mallanbool", both creep after it, until it slowly fades and then completely disappears for the night. 

The 90 year old bachelor and his cat find life peaceful at their home in North Murchison. 

Bachelorhood has its good and bad points, but one of the nicest things about it is to be able to quietly follow the warmth of the sun with a good book. 

Mr Reid is one of the last World War one veterans.
