Phil - I thought Belinda Green's compassionate nature and constant assistance to injured wildlife came across remarkably well.

And her cooperation and teamwork with Howie shone out.

Must be the SAhangover from the Adelaide Crows capitulation to the Richmond Tigers last Saturday which has cast a pall over the rest of the Croweater state.

Of course Phil you'll acknowledge full well that sport plays an integral part in people's lives. For instance, PNG is the only nation on the planet where rugby league is the national game.

But I digress - Howie is doing a sterling job despite injuries and advancing age. We wondered at our place why he had the large bandage on one hand/arm but a fall from a roof wouldn't have been ideal: a revelation from KJ in the yarn above.

Howie clearly lasted just the bare three years in the chalkie game so wasn't on board when the PNG Public Service Association rolled out the seventies 'golden handshakes'.

A very impressive man.

The episode on Australian Story was spun with Belinda Green, an ancient Miss World (or Universe or Galaxy or something), as the main focus but Howard stood out by miles.

The world is a better place for men and women like him.

And a surprising lot began their working life in PNG.
