Opis ebooka McALISTER'S WAY - Free Serialisation Vol 03 - Richard Marman

MCALISTER’S WAY FREE Weekly Serialisation Volume 3 Chapters 4 & 5 A Young Adult Action and Adventure Story for Baby Boomers Here are some more reflections to ponder over the next two serial chapters Chapter 4 A teenager’s first sexual encounters can be awkward and embarrassing and I’ve tried to tackle the issue sympathetically and with tolerance. But, here’s a conundrum for you. In the case of boys an experienced woman may be just what they need to get the ball rolling — forgive the double-entendre — yet for girls an older man may be seen as a sexual predator. Chapter 5 I fell in love with the Great Barrier Reef when I first went there in 1972 and have often snorkelled and occasionally dived there since then. Despite the latest bleaching, it’s still the most spectacular reef in the world. There is something extra special about sighting your first shark when snorkelling. ============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: McAlister’s Way, action, adventure, Zach, Danny, military, helicopters, choppers, soldiers, airmen, attack, New South Wales, Australia, Sydney, Merimbula, plane, flight, fly, Young Adult, YA, explore, discover, New Guinea, enlist, MIA, Missing In Action, Japanese, WWII, war, WW2, Tropic of Capricorn, Indo China, Vietnam, , accompanied, advantage, alcohol, a-penny-a-point, attention, AWU, bambino, barmaid, barracks, barroom, Beatrice, Beryl, Bob, Calm, camp, cane-cutters, Canna, cigarette-smoking, Cobar, Coles, coraggioso, Cowra, Criterion, cutters, damage, Danny, deck, den-of-iniquity, diesel, diggers, discover, dockside, drink, English, equipment, GI, Giovanni, girls, Gladys, Great Barrier Reef, grog, handsome, hell, Hotel, hover, Hoy, hydro-electric, inch-by-inch, Italian, Jack, killed, Lady Burdekin, Lenny, luck, machine, Mackay, Margaret, married, meat-and-two-veg, Noemi, north, opportunity, Penina, Plantation, POW, prawn, Ricci, roared into life, rozzers, Saturday, scatter, shack, shotgun, soon, stiletto-heeled, trawler, truck, under age, union, veranda, Whitsunday Islands, woman, work, XXXX

Chapter 4 Lenny, Noemi & Gladys

Noemi was bored and wilful – a naturally dangerous combination. Other than hard work, there was little social life at the Ricci property except Saturday nights when the family got together for a feast, wine, music and dancing. Unfortunately the young bachelors generally headed into Mackay after lunch to fill their bellies with beer before the hotels closed at 8pm. In this regard Queensland was better served than other states that still endured the six o’clock swill. This was generally followed by a taste of sin supplied by local working girls who’d either dodged the police or paid them off. So there was little potential romance left for Noemi to pick from.

Of course one of the young fellows she fancied was none other than handsome Leonardo Esposito who called himself Lenny because he thought it sounded cool. Lenny had been a bit of a hero in the Libyan Desert before being captured by diggers and shipped off to Marrinup in Western Australia, but the camp was overcrowded, so he was transferred to the Prisoner-of-War and Interment camp just outside Cowra in New South Wales where he sat out the war. Lenny hadn’t found being a POW any particular hardship. He was cheerful, optimistic and was often in working parties employed on local farms, market gardens, orchards and building projects. Although flatter, much of the country reminded him of Italy, especially the months when he was billeted at Coonabarabran while working on roads and farms in and around the Warrumbungle Ranges. Lenny also had a way with the ladies and, with so many men fighting overseas, he was only too happy to ease a little loneliness when he could. The fact that he’d learnt English, could play a guitar and croon Italian love ballads as smoothly as Dean Martin added to his charm.
