Autumn for Brian

Brian, you said on Claudette’s blog how you loved autumn so here’s some pics from my file of autumn here in this lovely valley I live in, in Tasmania, which you may like to see. {I am not good with the camera like Claudette is though}





Autumn Thoughts

Autumn is my favourite time:
The heat of summer gone,
Springtime but a memory,
And winter hurrying on.

Golden days of luxury
That money cannot buy;
Warmth of season’s sunshine
Blue of season’s sky.

Time for deep reflection
In my autumn soul
To look for rhyme and reason
That makes me fully whole.

For winter will encase me
Sometime down the years,
But autumn builds my confidence
And takes away my fears.

For memories that will always
Bring this autumn glow,
Will never be removed
By winter’s cold and snow


And more thanks!

So today Claudette came to visit with her head shaved as close as mine, except in the past week and some days mine has grown half a centimetre or so. Thank You Daughter!

Today to use a much overtaxed phrase, I think she is “awesome” to have done what she has done in support of myself and for the benefit of sick people.

Today I need to send thanks to Marion and hope Claudette passes that on, because you have all tipped me over the line of $9,000!

My hope now is to reach {Maybe???} the 9,6000 mark which amount would fund a six months research project for Leukaemia and associated blood diseases.

Am I being greedy? I don’t think so, as this is not FOR me or even ABOUT me, but for those who need help in treatment and for cures to be effected.

So THANKS! all you generous people.

And YAY!!!!!!!! Number Nine is rather unbelievable but wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!



In the past two days I have received sponsorship from unknown people for the  Leukaemia Foundation Shave that I have just participated in.

It doesn’t take much brain work to know that my dear daughter Claudette is behind this and that this is the “surprise” that I was forbidden to read about on her blog.

I am very grateful to her for whatever scheme she has concocted among her peer group bloggers, and I would like her to pass my gratitude on to Brian and Ian for their generosity. I truly appreciate it! When strangers offer support it’s a big lift of heart to me.

Many people have helped me in this fund raising effort and everyone has my thanks for what they have done. “One can do a little, but many ones can do much”

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!


World’s Greatest Shave {Day}

Enid shaved 2017

Here is me without any hair,
I took a look and it was there,
Then the clippers went clip
{I’m glad to say without a slip}
And suddenly my head was bare,
No grey, no green,anywhere!
But it doesn’t take any sort of care.
No plaiting, no pinning out of my eyes,
No bad hair days to bring forth sighs.
And people somewhere may have a chance,
To laugh, to live, and even dance!
So goodbye hair, I know you’ll be there
Maybe ready next year, for me to share.
