Mar­riage de­bate

I re­fer to your edi­to­rial on Satur­day Au­gust 12 in which you state, quite sar­cas­ti­cally, that most don’t want a plebiscite.

Are you re­ally that bi­ased? The coali­tion was elected at the last Fed­eral Elec­tion. Their plat­form in­cluded a plebiscite on gay mar­riage.

Surely even some­one who votes La­bor, as you ob­vi­ously do, will ac­knowl­edge that the ma­jor­ity, that is most, do want it.

That’s why the Coali­tion, led by Mal­colm Turn­bull, was voted to lead our coun­try.

Mag­a­zine love

Last week we bought the Satur­day Chron­i­cle for the first time. I read the week­end sec­tion from cover to cover and en­joyed so many of the ar­ti­cles. I par­tic­u­larly en­joyed Pol­lie Tick­led and Mind You, the recipes and the story about things that go bump in the night.

This week’s story on the Queens­land ro­mance writ­ers was in­ter­est­ing.

Now I can con­tinue to look for­ward to Satur­day morn­ing when I sit in the sun on my front ve­randa with a cup of cof­fee and read the Week­end sec­tion of the paper.

Welsh in­stinct for para­nor­mal

It is said that the Welsh have an un­canny in­stinct when it comes to the para­nor­mal. My hus­band was Welsh and he cer­tainly had it. Be­fore our mar­riage he moved into a 300-year-old house in Here­ford, in the UK.

He told me that one evening he saw a lady dressed in a long brown silky dress and her hair in ringlets walk through the liv­ing room. I would not have be­lieved this but when he told his as­so­ciate, who was also Welsh and owned the prac­tice, he said, “You’ve seen her too, have you?”

Later, in Aus­tralia, I was singing a solo at a lo­cal church. Af­ter­wards a lady said that some­body was singing with me. On reach­ing home I told this story to my hus­band who said, “Was she stand­ing to the right and slightly in front of you?” to which I replied, “How should I know, can you see her?”

He an­swered in the af­fir­ma­tive and said she was wear­ing a cloche hat. I went look­ing for my par­ents’ wed­ding pho­to­graph. I showed my hus­band the pho­to­graph and he said that she was the lady he saw.
