A few weeks ago our 15-month-old cat, a gorgeous tabby named Max, went missing. He was a roamer – neighbours from streets away had often told us Max had spent the afternoon at their house or they’d seen him strolling through their backyards – but he’d never completely disappeared before. He was always home for dinner and, a smoocher, he would always be home as our boys arrived back from school, ready to cuddle in a lap. But on a Sunday afternoon he was nowhere to be seen.

While trained medical diagnosis is preferable, we can all chart any skin abnormalities on a body outline – both front and back views – every three to six months. Any dark moles can be measured, noted and watched. Some medical centres have a “manage my health” system and evidence of unusual spots could be added to a confidential file for follow-up detection. For a toothache, see the dentist, for a WOF, see a garage, for your health, see a doctor. Act now! Mary Halse CAMINO TREK Reading about Julie Zarifeh’s Camino trek in the July issue brought back memories for me. I did the trek in 2006,…

Awards glitz KIWI ACTRESS Rebecca Gibney wowed on the red carpet of the Australian TV Logie Awards. The 54-year-old, dressed in a black fitted gown with billowing sheer sleeves, looked happy to be back in Australia for the event – she lived there for 30 years making shows such as Packed to the Rafters, before moving home to New Zealand in 2017. The actress will be seeing a bit more of Australia over the next few months while she films a new season of her popular crime series, Halifax f.p., which will be returning to screens this year, with Anthony LaPaglia and Jessica Marais joining the cast.
