POTY 2017

Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year.”

I told them I would accept the honour, which is well deserved and long overdue.

To save them the trouble of sending a team all the way to the Kimberley, I prepared my own photo.

Potted Biography:

Paper boy, diver, sailor, explorer, water supply engineer, writer, editor, humourist, conservationist, health inspector, investigator, chicken farmer and child-minder, Alan Freshwater’s working career spans fifty five years in thirty five jobs.  Known for his cooking skills, animal rights activism and charitable causes, he was once a contender for the highly esteemed Pullet Surprise.  He now lives the life of a recluse in the outback of Australia, turning down constant invitations to give after dinner speeches, and teaching indigenous children to fly kites.
