The baby wombats need your help

By johnboy 11 December 2008 32

The RSPCA has been been hit by a spate of orphaned baby wombats and other native wildlife.

    “RSPCA ACT has been overwhelmed with injured and orphaned native animals during the hotter months of the year. Used to caring for wombats on an individual basis from time to time, RSPCA ACT wildlife staff are currently caring for four of these appealing native creatures.

    RSPCA ACT will need to provide hands on care for these four wombats for at least 18 months, a challenge for staff but also a huge burden on already limited facilities.

They’d like you to know that it’s an extra demand on their strained resources. Also try not to mow down as much wildlife with your cars.

They’ve kindly provided us with this picture to show just how cute a baby wombat can be.

I’m guessing this is your cue to provide money or help.

What’s Your opinion?

Done – matched and raised. 😉

And by the way, I wasn’t having a go at all pensioners – just the ones who have no idea and will feed their bonus through the pokies, stick it up their arm in ‘medicinal’ fashion, piss it up the wall at the club or waste it on rubbish at Harvey Norman, etc.

The late Gordon Piper (Bob Hatfield) had a leg amputated due to chronic diabetes complications, and also faced charges of child abuse (Found not guilty).

Apart from that he owned and drove a truck, served in the Royal Australian Air Force, sold real estate and laboured on the tunnelling for Sydney’s eastern suburbs railway.
Piper is pictured on the Wall of Achievement at Penrith City Council.
He set up a television training centre and community theatre in Penrith, supported the Penrith Rotary Club, performed for the Lions Club of Cambridge Park, and belonged to the Variety Club of Australia.

(From this article in the age)

Pity about the whole court thing, apart from that he seemed like a really nice guy.

I met Sid Heyland in Grace Bros once, he was trying on suit jackets and when he saw me and my mum looking (I was a tacker, mum was aghast being a big ACP fan) he jokingly asked if we could help him remove the security tag – always a funny guy.

Bet ya didn’t know that 🙂

2 Aussie personalities that are dearly missed.

Now Joan Sydney (Matron Sloane) – something in my latter adult years made her Matron Sloan character uber sexy to me 🙂

I think Frank and Shirley inherited Fatso after Simon and Vicki moved away to the US (since Shirley was Vicki’s mum). So… everybody’s right!

Oh yeah, that was sad.

No, it was Shirley and Frank Gilroy who had Fatso.

Oh I think you will find it was Doctor Simon Bowen who had Fatso after he hit him with his car.

Of course this gave Simon every opportunity to see more of Vicky, but after she nursed Fatso back to health Simon was never able to release him into the wild.

Now….what about when Molly died?

ant 9:50 pm 11 Dec 08

No, it was Shirley and Frank Gilroy who had Fatso.
