THOUGHTS FROM THE SHOWER
4) Condolences/In Memoriam/Wreath Funds
Eileen Catherine Waldmeyer (nee Townley)
30th April 1931 - 13th January 2018
Passed away peacefully in Auckland, New Zealand. Cherished wife of Ivan, Loving mother and Grandmother to Liz & Willie, David & Cheryl, Carmel & Richard, Brian & Susan, Pauleen & Norman and all their families.
It broke our hearts to lose you. But you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
The Bowman Family would like to take an opportunity to convey their heartfelt thanks to so many friends who attended the Memorial Service for their beloved John and for their tributes to John and the loving support and comfort extended to them on their sad and tragic loss.
Happy memories for all the times we laughed together right back to school days and more recently my last trip to Zimbabwe.
What a privilege to have known such a brave, gentle, talented, beautiful lady.
Deep and sincere sympathy to all the family
COOPER - ALAN.
SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO THE COOPER FAMILY ON THE PASSING OF ALAN. HE WAS A WONDERFUL MAN AND A TRUE GENTLEMAN. OUR HEARTS ARE HEAVY AT THE LOSS OF THIS WONDERFUL MAN.

8) Bulawayo News
(The right thing to do in Zimbabwe after 2000)
Few items on shop shelves
Hard to find a loaf of bread
Had to make do, by ourselves
Bake a healthy loaf instead
With the weekly donation of oil and meal,
Swapping recipes while in the queue,
Laughingly encouraging others to deal
With the dry red beans in a stew!
We were a resilient clan --.
When such shortages were our lot
And lucky to have a wonderful man
For Bert Bouwer grew vegetables
On the vacant plot
Near to the cottages and flats we rent
We residents, at this time of need
Were more than grateful, the quality excellent
Grown from his own, self-planted seed.
When, at last shop shelves began to fill
The prices rose at an-incredible rate,
For high inflation controlled the till
And we became billionaires -of this high inflate!
New bearer cheques were issued, with which to pay
Till the factual, dreadful final, crunch came,
To our great dismay!
A total of twenty - three zeros, from our currency removed,
And one trillion Zimdollars, became
Only one, US dollar, that proved
To be the total loss of all our investments
In Cabs, the Post Office and Savings Banks.
Carefully planned for a secure retirement.
The money, from the sale of our house
Thus frittered away,
All accounts were at nought
From that day!
Thank goodness my husband, Ken
Had not lived to see
What had happened to all our savings
I had to make new plans to cope,
Probably a little better off than many,
Just couldn't sit down and mope.
There were letters to write, the garden to tend
Which was of great interest, and always keen
At one time, Bulawayo's rose queen
From someone, desperate to immigrate south,
The sale of my car brought in useful Rands,
Gave me sufficient funds
To tide, me over and see me through
The difficult times all had to endure.
Because Ken was a soldier and P.O.W
In the last war,
Through the Help Network I was able to secure
British ex-army funding from the Green Howards,
Of great benefit, just once each year.
In 2008, after Ken had died,
I, in my eighties, had some time to spare,
Had to decide
What I really wanted to do
Write poetry A dream come true
Thoughts came crowding into my head
As I lay awake in bed,
Of situations, people, and my great love of nature,
The insects, mammals, reptiles, birds, trees too,
Were what I had tried to nurture
In the children I had taught at school,
A longing to know, more about their intriguing lives
Our interactions with them should not be cruel,
But understanding, and learning
Of their amazing, diverse lives,
How each adapts and survives.
I did some research
Read over, crossed out, changed to review
Their stories, I tried to put into verse,
Added personal thoughts, experiences, and drew
To illustrate a few.
I don't know who will read my poems,
But I spent many happy hours, had great fun
In writing some.
Found it therapeutic too!
They, plus the small, cottage garden,
Have kept me busy and smiling through!
