This really breaks my heart.

I am unable to go up to Bali this year and missed last year because my son wanted to go on a cruise to Tahiti. This year I am having knee surgery - $37,000 worth - think of the number of needy Balinese that would feed!
However, I didn't ask to grow old - it comes as a complete surprise! - and as Maggie Thatcher once said " Old age isn't for sissies", so I guess I must be like the serene Balinese who simply accept and endure.
Perhaps when my surgery is complete and I have my bionic knees I will be able to walk the streets of Bali again and shop till I drop. In the meantime Larry it's up to you. I hope your words may have inspired some of the doubters to return to the 'Isle of the Gods' and spread their hard-earned dollars as far as they will reach.
