Bloggers PhotoHi it is time i introduced myself, I was born in Skipton Yorkshire, England, and still have a accent belonging to my birth place. in 1966 my wife Elaine and i and our two sons moved to New Zealand, where the boys were raised. then we  moved on to the city of Perth  in Western Australia.
After 45 years away we both decided to have a move back to the yorkshire dales where we were raised. leaving our children and grandchildren in what i consider the best places on the planet. (NZ-OZ)
Our reason for the move back to the uk was to be able to discover our back yard so to speak, and we have a desire to go to europe, especially scandinavia and germany.
 I would like to say how much i'm enjoying my trip here on soup, and really loved the poems posted, my bigest problem being time, i always seem to be catching up, being able only to spend two to three days on here, even then with limited hours, so please forgive me if my comments seem later than most.  I also love football (soccer) Newcastle United in England being my team, then music, all kinds but mainly Rock 'n' Roll, i'm  a avid record collector, especially old vinyl LP's of the Fifties. my favourite poet is W. H Davies, along with a few on soup here, I do not get a lot of time to read these days, but my favourite Author is Dennis Wheatley, also i love  the the Bronte Sisters, being raised only 10 miles from Haworth, one gets a real feel for their literature, when one visits the area.   Harry

MANDY TAMS THE GOLDEN GIRL


Blog Posted:10/16/2013 11:44:00 AM
Hi, just to inform everyone that Mandy is in hospital for major surgery, on Friday.
Mandy who has endured a good part of her life on crutches, having as a child been inoculated against polio,  the uk having run out imported a batch from overseas, that was contaminated, which although not instant reversed the effect, once a teen resulted in the start of her ordeals, of many admittance to hospital and to date over 30 times..for various operations.....
This lady whose blogs have brought so much joy to all us that have read them on soup,,with her wonderful sense of humour, whose poetry many with a wonderful twist at the end, is aptly named golden girl,,,,
So please think and pray for her on Friday, for a speedy recovery... and that she will return to lighten up our days very soon again....
Harry
