Well, Find a job you love

and you’ll never have to work again.

I became, Flight Captain Parkin

Smiling in my VC10

At Angels 35

I knew I was playing my part.

Flying in to Seychelles International

Stole my heart.



Ladies and gentlemen

this is your Captain speaking,

sit back and enjoy the flight.


I flew high

with my ladies in the sky.

My VC10, my Trident,

my 747.

I always returned to the true love of my life

I tried so hard, flying high

to bring us safely home.



That land down under has been the

back drop for so much of my life.

With Rachel and Ian living in

Beacon Hill and Allambie Heights.

And Maitland is the gateway to a valley

where the Shiraz flows at will.

In my very own Priscilla I reached the

Palace Hotel in Broken Hill.





In the Philippines the reefs are so beautiful

you can never forget.

And that Bear Hunt from Calgary to Vancouver

was a dream from the onset.

Those European adventures left so many

memories for us all.

With Susan by my side

I’ve spent my life standing so, so tall.
