ONE YEAR AGO...

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS WELCOME -

GREAT-grand­mother of five Dul­cie Brooks proved you’re never too old for Santa when she asked him for a new body this year at age 97.

Div­ing back into the 1930s, Dul­cie re­mem­bers the first time she sat on Santa’s knee at age 12 to ask for a sleep­ing doll she named Myra.

Dul­cie said she re­called cut­ting down a nearby tree as a makeshift Christ­mas tree, which they dec­o­rated with hand­made dec­o­ra­tions.

The Whit­sun­day Times

team wishes our read­ers a Merry Christ­mas and a happy and safe New Year.
