Retired detective sergeant Dave McAlpine relaxes with a few Aussie cobbers next to the gum-tree fringed billabong on a mate's property in remote northern Thailand.
Dave'll need all the rest he can muster - "matters" are now moving very quickly.
Great to see you in fighting fit readiness old mate - and good to be back in harness with you!
Every touch leaves its trace.
PS - with apologies to Arthur Streeton!!!!!
