When Kate was a young woman, not so long ago, when she found herself in a bar talking to some young chap, she tells me that she would invariably ask the potential beau whether they would like to go to Cooktown. Her notion, she says, was to see how spontaneous and adventurous they might be, or at least to test their wit. However, it would seem that no young man was willing to take her suggestion seriously.

When she told me this story, a little while back now, and even though neither of us is as young as we once were, of course I said that we would go if she wanted to.  And so, here we are.

All is well.
