'Day all. Anyone interested in folktales, especially magic/fairy/wonder tales, collected in Australia, I know quite a few, and am definitely interested in discovering more. Drop us a line. Oh yeah! Do yous know about the Australian Fairy Tale Society's Inaugural Conference at Paddington Uniting Church, Sydney, on 9th June, 2014? Hope to see you there.

I am happily telling in Canberra, especially to children and their parents from 0-8

My resource collection has built up over the years and I happily use puppets, props and participation with the groups I am involved with

Today would have been Mabel's birthday.

I celebrate her life & friendship & mourn losing her recently.  She left a legacy among those of us who had the good fortune to know her, either online, or in her beloved Australia.

Fabulous news for you & also Marilyn!  May your homes also be well. 

A comparatively very minor house flood that happened last year was nothing to what is happening in Oz.  Still it gives me an understanding of how it will disrupt lives long after the waters are gone.

LoiS(tay well & help where you can)

Hi Lois and all. As far as I know, all Qld Storytellers are fine. Shirley did a ring/email around yesterday. Strangely enough I am, once again, out of Brisbane during the big flood. I'm down in Deniliquing visiting family and having a break. In the 1974 flood I was out of Brisbane. I was flood bound in the central qld town of Aramac waiting for the inland sea to retreat. Eventually flew out with the flying doctor and got back to Brisbane in time for the clean up.  I have a strange sense of deja vu about it all. Still people will have some amazing stories they will want to share.

So it's even in New South Wales?  Jane Tanner just says NSW & I've no idea where Bateman's Bay is, but that's Anna Jarrett's home.

I know Queensland normally counts on the rains flooding at least the north, but this is way beyond that & I join you in your concern for your countrymen.  It's impressive & scary to see the devastation.

Hope it's a G'day wherever you are!

I see the flood waters have reached Brisbane where Marilyn & Daryll live.  Everybody else is in NSW (no doubt holding your breath!)  If you're currently o.k., Marilyn & Daryll, please give us a shout!  Anybody else if you've been travelling in Queensland during this, let us know more about how you're doing.


In the meantime our prayers are with all involved in the flood & for Marilyn & Daryll.

Just posted in the Forum about the passing of Mabel Kaplan.  I know there are many others beyond the shores of Oz & her beloved Perth who will miss her & want to know.
Comment by Marilyn Roberts on December 13, 2010 at 3:54am

I too pass on my best wishes, sorry Lois I can't tell you more!

Comment by Lois Sprengnether Keel (LoiS) on December 12, 2010 at 2:36pm

Has anybody heard how Mabel Kaplan of Perth is doing?  At the beginning of December it was posted on the email list, Storytell, that she was ill in hospital with further tests pending.

Have heard nothing further there.  (Just sent an offlist email to the Storytell member relaying the message from her source in Oz.)  I know it's a big land, but I also know Mabel's done a LOT for Aussie storytelling, so I'm hoping someone knows more.  Don't want to just email Mabel if she's still in a bad way.

LoiS(till wishing for a G'day for her!)
