A very happy 51st wedding anniversary to the Moruya “love birds” Barbara and Bruce Smith. This couple could teach us all a thing or two about how important “teamship” is in a successful marriage.
A happy 4th birthday to Zali Rowland-Smith last week. I believe plans are afoot for a celebration with a friend later this month!
The lovely Carol Osling from Mogo has just returned from a great 10 days in Claremont, Perth, with her eldest son and his family. Grandson Tom, who is nine, is a very keen cricketer, so Nan’s bowling arm needed a rest after a four-day “test” between NSW and Western Australia (just the two of them). Carol enjoyed wonderful meals, days at Cottesloe Beach, more great meals and shopping.
