“WHAT CAN I RE­MEM­BER” AND ALSO “ON GROW­ING OLD”

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Memories -

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
