Last Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel

yellow-ribbon2Rest in peace Faole Bokoi, the last ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel’. During World War II, when Australian troops fought in the rough terrain of Papua New Guinea against the invading Japanese, a group of locals, known affectionately as the Fuzzy Wuzzies, helped the Aussie soldiers defend their country. One of their most selfless acts was to carry wounded Aussie soldiers out of the harsh terrain of the Kokoda Track to hospitals . The legend of the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ came to light when soldiers began sending poems and letters to their families back home mentioning the Angels.

LEST WE FORGET

It Has Been A Year

Robin WilliamsThe world has definitely been a sadder place since Robin Williams left us a year ago today.  He was the go to guy when you needed a laugh. You could watch his movies and stand-ups over and over again and still find little quips you missed. I still haven’t been able to watch a single one since he left, despite the networks efforts in keeping their ratings high by playing Mrs Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting nearly every week. No Robin Williams, your passing has left a big friggin hole that can’t be filled. Nanoo Nanoo.
