This was not some­thing that I planned

Llanelli Star - - LETTERS -

I have just re­alised that this will be the 250th page I’ve pre­sented to the lo­cal pa­pers and, in ad­di­tion to this, slightly sur­prised by the fact that I con­tinue to come up with new ideas and sto­ries on a weekly ba­sis.

This was not some­thing that I planned. I just hap­pened to be ap­proached and ac­cepted the chal­lenge in my usual en­thu­si­as­tic way. Learn­ing on the job is one way of de­scrib­ing the jour­ney so far.

Hav­ing said that, it has now be­come a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence to be ap­proached by the pub­lic while out on my trav­els, only to be com­pli­mented on my weekly news­pa­per ar­ti­cles.

It’s nice to learn that peo­ple are gaining some plea­sure from my work.

Even my doc­tor com­mented re­cently, which to­tally threw me as he was car­ry­ing out my first ever prostate ex­am­i­na­tion at the time. My re­ply was quite high pitched. Not the con­ver­sa­tion I was ex­pect­ing and not that I have a prostate is­sue, but I’m at the age where reg­u­lar check-ups are ad­vi­sory.

So, if you are read­ing this, clearly you are check­ing out my column.

If you are male and of a ma­ture age then make sure you also reg­u­larly check out your prostate con­di­tion.

You can thank me later.
