FOR DOROTHY

We share the days and nights together, the mornings and the afternoons,
the kitchen and the news and weather, the birthdays and a hundred tunes.

Oh, but it’s not easy to express the way I feel. No, it isn’t easy just to show my love is real.

I like your style of conversation,
the way you walk and what you wear. I like your special sense of humour and jokes that only we can share.

Oh, how I love your eyes; they speak more than words of the song that is you inside.

So much of you is in my breathing. You’re written into every scene.
I love you more than songs and singing, I want to stay inside your dreams.

2019 - a big year 

July 26 1949 Robin Mann was born, 9th child of Arthur & Elsie Mann

November 5 1949 Dorothy Stiller was born, 4th child of Hugo & Valmai Stiller

December 20 1969 Robin & Dorothy were married at Christ Church Lutheran, Murray Bridge

So, in 2019 we have some special anniversaries to celebrate. Apart from a trip in Turkey in May, we're still working on other ideas. A night of music seems to be a likely starter.
