A FEW days before Father’s Day I was listening to my father and brother having a conversation and thought just how far apart their realities are. The world my dad grew up in is something my brother can’t even comprehend and I’m pretty sure my father can’t really wrap his head around what it’s like to be a young person in 2019. Yet my dad is my brother’s role model, the person he most looks up to and wants to emulate. Even if he doesn’t say it, I can see that to him our father is a hero. And yay to that. I’m so glad that from him my brother can learn how to work hard and persevere even when things get tough. That he can see what it’s like to treat a…

food, glorious food!

MY FRIEND Brigitte Hayes (RIGHT) recently celebrated her 80th birthday in Pretoria. Brigitte asked all her friends and family if they’d kindly donate dog or cat food to the SPCA in lieu of birthday gifts. Guests at her celebration were astounded and delighted to see how kind everyone was to donate so much food to needy animals. We all agree that the SPCA takes such good care of our animals, and we were happy to collect all this wonderful food for their dogs and cats! I’d like to remind readers that the SPCA is desperately in need of dog and cat food. All branches in South Africa would happily collect any donation of food no matter how small. Some branches have already run out of this vital resource. MURIEL SEDGMAN, PRETORIA…

WEAR GREEN & GOLD WITH PRIDE I always feel disappointed when players selected to represent our country complain about bonuses before even playing. What more motivation do these players want? Isn’t it a national honour to represent South Africa? Wearing those gold and green jerseys should be motivation enough. I played high school and tertiary-level rugby, soccer, cricket, basketball and tennis but unfortunately I never made it nationally. The best I could do was provincial level. Remember, you’re not only playing to fatten your pockets and increase your bank balances but to represent the millions who’ve rallied behind you. I want to take this opportunity to wish all the teams and everyone participating in the Africa Cup of Nations and all world cup sporting codes good luck and to ask that they please make…

a woman’s world

To be diagnosed with HIV, realising your husband of years ago probably gave it to you, then a few days later being struck down by a rare form of meningitis – let’s just say I’ve been through a life-changing experience. But at the same time it brought out the warrior woman in me. I lost five months of this year. I had to learn to walk again and somehow find myself. Psychologically the pain became too much. I weighed 39kg when I was at my sickest. Today I’m up to 47kg again. The HIV is nothing. I’m 61 anyway and can’t see myself dating again. I had no chance of pulling through, but with God’s help, a few wonderful friends and supernatural guts I guess I beat the angel of death. Today I…

in brief

Thanks for the lovely spread on Meghan and Harry’s new arrival (YOU, 23 May). I thought readers might like to know the meaning of the long version of wee Archie’s name: Archibald means sacred, noble and bold. MARIE DIXON, EMAIL Nobody seems to say one sentence without the word “like’’ anymore. I thought it meant you liked something but not in the context it’s now used. Presenters on the radio are particularly bad. Just listen for a while to people talking. You’ll be amazed. ANGELA PETERS, EMAIL I had to have my fingerprints taken at the police station and was shocked at how primitive and dirty our stations are. I had to wash off black ink with thick, dirty degreaser in a dirty basin with ice-cold water. SA, clean up our government departments! WENDY, MIDRAND Why…
