Family visit last week

Shopping till they dropped
almost done
Melissa visited last week and it was wonderful to have my little family all together. I can imagine that my Mum felt the same way. For just a few short hours those you love most on this planet are with you and you know they are okay - I guess some may not understand this feeling and see me as a worrier - but most going back generations seem not to die what you call a natural death and the rare few who have made their 80's are rare indeed. So when we are together I feel a sublime feeling of "All's right with the world". We had a day in St Kilda and went to our favourite place the Chapel St Bazaar. If you have never been there you have to go...there is anything and everything there. I came away with a book on the life of Red Skelton - one of my favourite old time comedians. Melissa got two antique - Retro tall coloured glass bottles and Alison ended up with a small gold brooch with her name on it  -  Alice (we call her Little Alice) .

A right pair of posers

and more

Then we hit the photo booth  we were mashed in together

Six years today

Rest in Peace lovely Don - 1950 - 17th May 2007. Its six years today since Don was killed by gross medical malpractice - and still no one is accountable. He is remembered with great love and affection by our little family, and I know where his soul is now - that's what those who brutalised him don't seem to understand. One day they will have to answer for their criminal behaviour - in a higher court than the ineffective ones we have on earth.

The Australian & New Zealand Geo-Engineering Protest - Melbourne Event 2...

This is video of the rally I went to in April – was a great day... just thought you might be interested – these are good, wide awake people. They are aware on many issues regarding Fluoridation ELF  and GMO. Felt was amongst mates. So good not to have to continually explain myself which is usually exhausting,

Mum's day

And this niceness from my other daughter who lives in NSW

Dr John Kaye asks questions in NSW Parliament over Don's death

John Kaye from the NSW Senate has asked these questions on Don’s death... I would really appreciate if people felt able to just write one line to Dr John Kaye by way of support – it would mean a lot as it is a solitary battle and one which any husband or wife who loved the other would have to fight. Best wishes Therese Mackay
