Helen Remembering Spaw (25) RE: Remembering Spaw 13 Jun 19


Sorry folks, but I'm going to lower the tone of this thread slightly. My memories of Spaw's contributions to the threads are many and almost always hilarious or right on point, but the comment from him that I always remember is his comment on a gift I sent to him from Oz once.

It was a jar of Vegemite, which had been under discussion in one of the threads. When he received it, as I recall he said he thought it was different but ok, but that he wasn't impressed by the Vegemite fragrance of his flatulence.

Sometimes, I think of Spaw and remember that comment, and sometimes I look at a jar of Vegemite and think of it too. I think the important point to remember here is that so many Oz people have lived on Vegemite for nearly 100 years, so it's a bit like everyone eating garlic - no-one notices that particular smell - if indeed it exists, which it might not, because he was always poking fun, especially at national icons. I prefer to think that he was making it up for jocular effect. We don't really smell like Vegemite. Do we?

I miss you Spaw, not least because our birthdays are so close. Geminis rule!!! Yeah!!!
