- MYSTERY INSIGHT (Who am I?)
‘Passing through Bangkok Airport intending to stay one night en route to the final destination, I was arrested and taken to their Jail with men at the end and women down the sides. I was made to sit down and not speak. The wailing was awful, arms thrust out pleading for something? Eventually my partner was allowed in but no talking, and if they asked questions they were threatened by gun wielding Police. After 3 horrible hours I was taken back to my luggage and finally informed that someone with my exact name and passport was wanted for drug possession’ So, who’s the jail bird amongst us, think you know? There was a huge response to last weeks ‘Who am I’ with incredible thought and deduction used to establish the Mystery Insight. Though a number of residents answered correctly, there can only be one winner who got in first and this weeks Winner is, Elly & Ian who guessed Maree’s dog Bella. Your prize is in the post.
I’m looking for a Mystery Insight for next week so please start writing.
- ONE WHO HOLDS THE COMFORT OF OTHERS ABOVE THEIR OWN
It is with much sadness that I advise the passing of one of Hester Canterbury’s newest residents, Len. Though I only knew Len for 3 months I enjoyed my chats with him and found him to be a true gentleman. I have no doubt the community will pull together to support Barbara through her transition without her soul mate. If you would like to attend Len’s Service of Thanksgiving it will be held in St Dunstan’s Anglican Church, 163 Wattle Valley Road Camberwell, this Friday 2 December at 2pm.
