GOF is a reclusive, cynical, irreverent, sexagenarian Australian who lives a life of great contentment and financial inadequacy with his long suffering partner of 36 years in a remote location surrounded by tropical rainforest. He is not connected to Australia’s electricity grid, political stupidity or rampant consumerism.
“The Bucket” is my autobiography diluted with a whole lot of nonsense. There are some stories about growing up in rural Australia, many more about working, trekking, and flying a Cessna 182 around remote areas of New Guinea during the period 1968 to 1979, (see “PNG Stories” here) and many tales about the failures, personal foolishness and wonderful rewards of trying to live a life of self-sufficiency in tropical North Queensland.
One of my heroes is the satirical lyricist Tom Lehrer, who once stated that;
“Life is like a sewer. What you get out of it, depends upon what you put into it.”
That pretty much sums up what it’s all about.
