My in blondes on a beach lived nearby, and also would frequently call in unannounced.
One sunny morning while I was working bare in the backyard my father in law walked around the corner of the house, and was right near me before either of us had the chance to avert the situation.
I stopped shovelling and tried to stand “strategically” whilst carrying on a somewhat aawkward dialogue for some minutes.
He then went indoors to see my wife (his daughter).
Oddest and most liberating was being in a crown of 4,300 naked people posing bare in central Melbourne for Spencer Tunick in October 2001 – at some point of the morning it occurred to me that whatever our race, we’re much more alike than we are different – a fairly serious and encouraging thought coming so lately after the terror of September 11!
