For many years you have heard exciting and humorous tales about an elderly aunt/uncle in your family.Someone gives you a diary that once belonged to this relative, who is now dead.write TWO diary entries, each describing a memorable moment in this persons life.
Jed's Diary.
3(a) 21st Oct/1983.

Happy birthday to me! 57 years of my life have passed.. (which is not a good thing). Anyhow, I've been on my dream vacation for over two days now, sailing down the Amazon River. The weather fresh, but cloudy and the seagulls are chattering noisily above. River is calm, occasionally releasing high, curving waves. NO sign of a storm. Thank God.
Towering trees of all types loom above and the faint howling of monkeys are heard once in a while.
Had a most exciting experience today! I'm still feeling 'over the moon' and the memory of this time will definitely stay with me forever.
Goodness Gracious! My stomach flipped dreadfully as I plunged off the rocky cliff. It was actually 5m tall and as i flew, down... down... down... hanging from a tough, but thin red rope that clung tightly to my round waist, I felt all my body parts move from their fixed positions!
Yep! I went 'bungee jumping'! Crazy or what?! I can tell you, my hair looked as though I'd just been electrocuted, It looked hilarious, especially it's a bright auburn colour! and I was half dead when they brought me back to the firm ground.dizzy. But I may as well have another go tomorrow!
Anyway, I forgot it was dinner time an hour ago! Maybe I am getting a little old (no I'm not). It's too heart breaking to believe.

5th Jan/1985.

Oh, Thank the Lord! I've been on my sore feet literally all day and am now relaxing on the comfy, red couch with a glass of icy lemonade. Aaaah! How I get time to fill in my precious diary, I don't know!
Well, I decided that it was about time I knocked down the ancient garden fence and built a new one, (Not that it's damaged or scratched) Oh no!
Nobody ruins my property and gets away with it! It's just that I felt bored as usual, The doctors have also advised me to keep fit. Fit?! I'm as fit as a fiddle , thank you very much!
Anyhow, I did knock down the rusty, green fence and it crashed down in one piece, Not really. I had quite a hard time actually. The neighbors thought I was crazy! An old man like myself doing that sort of task!
"You should consider gardening." one of them called. Me! gardening! Pah! I'll have you know, I'm strong.
I didn't finish building the replacement. I'm tired, so I'll do it tomorrow. And then I'll paint it. Orange. Maybe.
