Gwen's Gang

There is a Face Book site set up to remember the late Dame M. Her Boarder, who died last year, is included, on fact dominates. Gwen's Gang is slowly dissipating and is close to dissolution from deaths, distances and differences. (omg, I did not even try for alliteration)

If you have Facebook, there is tribute site to Dame M and her Boarder. Maybe you can see without joining Facebook.

https://www.facebook.com/gwensgang/ You may even spot R in one of the photos, but I am nearly always behind the camera.

http://highriser.blogspot.com.au/search/label/Dame%20M  Wow, 76 posts tagged Dame M. It is ten years since she died, yet the memories are so fresh. It is not just about Dame M. It is about how our lives have changed since then, partly because of her demise, but more to do with us just getting older.

I need a photo. Here is Dame M with her US citizen younger sister sans her ever straight laced husband who visited Melbourne while on a ship cruise, and Dame M's delicious charmer great nephew and his then girlfriend. Our female hairdresser friend and myself used to swap sexual fantasies about Dame M's nephew.

Reckon they are sisters? They weren't terribly fond of each other and lived very different lives. Ah yeah, I did not remember, but her name tag says Valda. Dame M's Boarder always attended to Dame M's hair. He combed it up the day she died.


Perhaps I need to add a tag, maudlin.

  2. Yup, even those of us who avoid FB can look. Thank you. Some wonderful smiles.
    And I can so understand a teeny fantasy or two about the great nephew.

    1. Grace, yes she is still missed. The great nephew may not be so good ten years down the track.

    1. Yes, very clearly sisters, Strayer. She has lived in the US for most of her adult life and had a American accent.
