Giles is now fully retired
and living in Wollongong. He has succumbed to vertigo and diabetes, both affliction of old age. So he no
longer travels anywhere beyond his front door.
He enjoys a glass of wine or beer occassionally.
He is in reasonable health and welcomes visitors. He also maintains the Balgownie Hotel Joke Book here.
The ANU Poets' Lunch and the Emeritus Faculty have together published a
book of his poetry. The work is available on http://gilespickford.net/papers_poems_yarns.html
