long-time readers deserve explanations
So here’s mine.
I’m just about done on writing about surfing – everything is here.
And it happened I was handed a couple of pages on Kerry Greenwood’s latest book ‘Tamam Shud’ the other day.
My wife. She thought I might find it curious.
Well I did.
Now I have a grand theory about Australia’s Greatest Mystery: The Somerton Man.
Professor Derek Abbott and retired copper Gerry Feltus have laid out all the bones of this mystery, I’m going to lay some skin over them.
– and, so far, everything is fitting just fine.
and thanks for traveling along here.
Not that it’s ended just yet.

It’s been unreal Pete … I’ve loved your surfing stories!
They’re still watching. Always have been, always will be. It all starts with a message that the file can’t be found. Then you know.
Subject matters may change – but the style remains…
As a selfish unskilled reader , i look forward to you opening up your style PB to the endless subjects that abound , it is fantastic that you are willing unshackle your creative spirit from the confines of such a narrow nepotistic self flagellating subject be brave be free write with your eyes & ears in the style you do so very well.
just between you and me sjh, this novel writing caper is a bit of a late night event, no wonder the old masters were into black rum and local maryjane – plus cold pizzas for breakfast.
Signing the exhumation petition will be a good step forward in solving the mystery. perhaps the only valid step. https://www.change.org/petitions/solve-the-taman-shud-mystery-by-identifying-somerton-man
Those blokes are looking at the wrong end of the dead man – his turned in toes are the key to the mystery. Everyone accepts he was the father, most probably. His DNA won’t tell us who he is, though I reckon I’ve got a good idea, just between you and me Bazzer.
He may well be the father, the odds are good. DNA could identify his country of origin and prove the love child hypothesis. If you’re saying the toes point to ballet dancing, I’m not necessarily convinced – diving might be a better option. What’s your idea? I’m easy to find.
dystonia … of the toes.
