must try and make it to Greens country, to catch up with Fritz and you. Marge & I will enjoy your musical company I'm sure.
Our neighbours are a lovely Dutch couple, Heinz and Ackkie (Agnes), Heinz is a retired engineer, and is always helping out, with things I am not able to do, like changing a globe, or things like that, that Marge finds difficult. Chantal's (our daughter)boy friend is also an Aussie born Dutch bloke. He like her is a Lawyer too.
We had a really nice Melbourne day, but right now, it looks like a typical London evening !! the changing face of Melbourne.
Would love to welcome you and Marj Glen I was I suppose a lady of many talents The stroke rendered my left hand useless in my piano playing. Worse than that my singing voice changed and our musical children quickly told me I was not singing in tune. If it had been right out of tune, I probably could have accepted that better. But having once had singing as my musical forte, it broke my heart when it was out of tune after a lifetime of loving singing and singing well. At first even hearing music was disastrous, all music sounded the same: a "tinny" sound. The neuropsychologist in rehab hospital gave me some musical tests. She said all was still there, maybe it would return with practice. I must admit that I haven't practised enough yet, because of my trying to fit in physio etc etc and still grieving for my lost voice has disheartened me,. I get the most incredible help now from listening to music, so that has returned
Please let us know when you're coming to Tassie.Pats
