“WHAT CAN I REMEMBER” AND ALSO “ON GROWING OLD”
Two contributions from 92 year old, Mary Leonora Smith, a regular reader of this magazine, from Old Toongabbie.
But first her letter to me....
I have so enjoyed the stories you have printed, so thought I would add just a few of my own. Perhaps there is someone still living in the area who will share these same memories?
My parents, Bob and Zenobia Brown came from England after the First World War ended about 1919, Dad from Norfolk, Mum from Cornwall. They settled on the site where “Wagon Wheels Nursery” had their nursery. I was born on that little farm; where I believe an aged care facility is being built; perhaps I will make it full circle?
I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager; the enclosed “On Growing Old” is my latest; I hope you enjoy it.
I am 92 now, running out of time and inspiration but I am blessed with a good long term memory.
Thank you for the memories...
Sincerely, (Mrs) Mary Leonora Smith nee Brown
