It is not about Shannon who is more than just a pretty face, it is about what he has stuck on his tumblr. How sad are the photos of a closed kiddie amusement park.
But if you want a daily dose of really sad closed places to thoroughly depress you, subscribe to Abandonedography.
No tears were shed when our Wobbies World closed. I think it was a blessing from our lord.
This evening I asked our ex NT politician friend who is now a broadcaster on an older people's radio station, when will nursing homes and aged care places cease to have a piano and the residents will no longer sing It's a Long Way to Tipperary, and White Cliffs of Dover? He said in about fifty years. Just to note, while Golden Days Radio only broadcasts on FM radio airwaves, 95.7 and not digitally, it does stream over the net and has many overseas listeners.
At the age of 84, our friend's broadcasting receptionist died last week. We spoke to her on the phone a few times and R's sister spoke to her when she was here in March. She lived in the same East St Kilda street for her whole life. Her parents were married at St Mary's in Dandenong Road, she was christened in St Mary's, she married in St Mary's and her funeral was at St Mary's. She did venture outside St Kilda though, working for many years at the West Melbourne Telephone Exchange. She was nice to talk to on the phone when we called to gee up the call in ratings for our friend.
