A brush with fame ...

Our local University has opened a new garden celebrating Australian Aboriginal heritage... the plants are some of those traditionally used for food and medicine.

My DD2 was responsible for organising the event so I went along to see what she did


After the speeches there was some music (look at the size of the little chap doing the didgereedoo... just a tot... so good too!)  Kooma Didgeri Dance Troupe


... and dancers.....
(those are some of the new plantings just behind them)



Troy Casser-Daley did a couple of songs for us...


... and Roger Knox sang.... such  a gentle man with real interest in people.... 


Herb Wharton gave us a few stories and read us one of his poems
(a real character and I could've listened to his stories for longer)


 ... after the entertainment we had a chance to meet and greet.... lots of people were signing up for autographs but I didn't have a paper... so he asked "Would you like a photo"....
"Oh yea... sure I do...."


Righto, Gotta Go.. better download some of my most recent favourite country music!

.... well after I phone and tell DD2 just how proud I am of her ...

Hello Fiona,

You must be so proud of your daughter. I love Troy's songs, a photo is so much better than a piece of paper!
Happy days.
Bev.
