    Hi Sandy, just read this tonight. Yes i have Anxiety and depression. I just want to curl up and sleep as I feel safe there, Going fishing is now a huge effort, I have a new Psychologist who is a big help, He is working on showing me ways to divert my thoughts onto other things and away from those that trigger attacks . Praying for you, Howard.

    Thanks to all the doctors appointments I don't seem to suffer from anxiety so much any more :)
    I am never home now lol
    I have been taking a few trips to Sydney as well to stay with friends which has helped me out immensely :)
    Plus I have changed the way I look at things, thanks to some wise words said to me on here :) I keep myself busy and have come to realise if s h i t is gonna happen there is nothing I or anyone can do about it :)

    Hi Sandy good to see you posting, life's a bitch [I know you won't take offence to that word] the older we get the more Bulls##t we have to go through. I got a few test results back the other day, Flying is out for a while longer, long trips are out for a while, advised to keep in range of a major Hospital. I'm not that close to one at home, spose you have to listen to the Experts.

    One thing on my legends list that my son has added is a deep sea fishing trip. I used to work on trawlers when I was younger, but he has never been, he is my fishing buddy, so would love to accomodate him while I am still able :)
    Anyone know of any that has reasonable rates? One day would be suffice. Anyone know any? NSW or QLD :)

    G'day Sandy, good to see you back again.

    There are a lot of charter boats working out of most of the fishing ports of NSW and Qld and picking the right one is the big question. I reckon you can't go past Port Stephens as being one the best locations and if you pick a charter that offers both offshore reef & deep sea plus estuary should the weather turn bad then you will be on a winner. Sorry I can't suggest any particular mob to try, but Google will help you out on that.

    Good to see you back girl, even if you're still struggling a bit. Your story is a bit sad. Life's just that bit bit harder when travelling is an issue but Eucumbene during the summer is a good place to get into
    fly fishing. If you could get there for a while I'd do my damnest to help. We have accommodation and all the gear there (in heaps). Noel

    Kev. I know you're not travelling as you'd like. I feel for you old mate. I'm still on the endless search for some good in this getting older business. Not succeeding. Still waiting here for the date for next cardiac surgery. Boss is in panic because book launch is only four weeks away and last time, the recovery time was about a month. Will ring again today to check. If it's not until later next week; I'll ask medico to defer it until after the book day. Like Sandy; we all have a cross to bear but I wish it wasn't glued on. I'd rather drop it. We think often of the good lady Lyn too as she is also carrying some of the load. Regards, Noel.

    Good luck with the fossicking, Sandy, it is also a passion of mine. Many years ago I took it to the next level as shown in the pic below. You will find that in some ways the results of fossicking are similar to fishing - there is a lot of water between fish and there is a lot of dirt between gemstones.

    Opal mine Jeff?
    We used to go fossicking as kids, bought myself a metal detector as I live in Gold country :)
    So I thought, well it's time to start getting back out there and do both things I love doing :)

    Sapphires, Sandy. Where I am kneeling is near enough to 60 feet below the surface - a lot of work for mixed rewards. We live on the mining claims for about 6 to 8 months of the year and then take off fishing somewhere for the remainder. It's a very basic sort of lifestyle, not connected to the electricity grid or town water, we use solar & generator power and have ample rainwater storage, good neighbours and I can leave the vehicle unlocked overnight with keys in the ignition knowing that it will still be there in the morning.

    I still chase a bit of gold every now and then, usually up the Cape or a cross country trip to WA. The good thing about gold is that it is easy to sell, not such the case with a lot of gemstones due to the increase in synthetic stone being churned out in Asian labs. Opal is probably the most easily saleable stone at the moment, especially high quality boulder opal from western Qld, but the market can be fickle and what sells well today may not sell tomorrow. It's a great past-time though, one that keeps you fit and healthy.

    The pic below is some nuggety gold from a little patch I worked not far north of Menzies in WA - 45 grams in less than 2 hours and sold it to a buyer the following day for $2,000.
