Peggy Quotes 2

One minute I was crying with laughter as Peggy read 1950s advice for wives.Then, like a curving ball from nowhere, a wave of emotion hit me and I was fighting to hide sobs, blinded by mascara, when Peggy sang The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

32 Irene and nobbly tree.JPG

2009 JANUARY, FEBRUARY, MARCH Now back to 487 Kenepuru Road for what turns out to be a three-month lie-back-and-enjoy-the-NZ-summer. I have to get used to the fact that Irene is known in her habitat as Pyper. Pyper Scott. She made the name change when she ran Pyper's Place, her cafe in Asheville. People just called her Pyper and it being her mother's maiden name it came naturally to her to adopt it after her mother's death. We make the acquaintance of Earl Conroy, a nutrition guru (don't know if he would like that nomenclature) who, for our ills, takes us off meat, fowl, fish, dairy, wheat, alcohol, caffeine, sugar and other delights. Not so hard for Irene as she's been a vegetarian for forty years. We settle into supplements, citrus pectin, bowel cleanouts (thought we'd share that with you) and build-ups of immune systems. I lose 18 pounds over the 3 months. Am delighted. Trouble is, in October 2008 I gave away all the clothes that didn't fit me! Let's try on this a new image.
