As Time Goes By
What did the patella say to the femur?
I kneed you.
Did you know?
Jedi Master Yoda, Miss Piggy, Cookie Monster (and more,) are voiced by the same
actor, Frank Oz.
As time goes by...
Balaklava resident and Saddleworth Primary School teacher, Jenny Shepherd, (Go
the ‘fro!) has opted for an easier, shorter hairstyle style nowadays, while her farmer
husband, Philip, has (thankfully) ditched the side burns.
Good to see both Jenny and Philip with full heads of hair– even at their ages!
Rainbows are more common in mornings and evenings, but if they appear after dark
they are called moonbows.
Busy time for members

CWA is holding an Open Day
next Tuesday, October 22, from
10.30am to 12pm, and again from
1.30pm to 3.30pm, at the CWA
rooms, and all ladies are invited
to attend and see exactly what
In between those times, the
ladies will head out for lunch, and
everyone is very welcome to join
You don’t need to know any-
thing about any type of craft, as the
ladies there can give you lessons
and show you the tricks of the trade!
There’s knitting, sewing, cro-
cheting, needlework, scrapbooking
and more – whatever you’d like to
have a go at.
New members are always
welcome, as Cheryl Webster has
“I was born and bred here and
have come back to retire and de-
cided to go to CWA and see what
it was about,” she said.
“It’s very social, and a great way
to meet new people and make new
CWA has all equipment on hand,
including sewing machines.
Ladies (of all ages) are invited to
bring their own craft if they wish,
or just come along and see what is
available at the rooms.
CWA also runs craft classes in
school holidays for children, so
keep an eye out for classes next
“I think the older CWA ladies
have so much information and
knowledge to give to younger
people,” said Cheryl.
CWA is also trialling a night
craft group, with the first one on
Tuesday October 29 from 7.30pm
“If people don’t want to do any
craft work, they can just come along
for a cuppa and chat, and ladies
can stay for as long as they like,”
And if you like cards, CWA has a
card afternoon every public holiday
at the rooms, starting at 1pm sharp.
Sometimes the ladies travel
around the district, going out to
lunch or the cinema, or have guest
speakers at the rooms.
CWA meetings are on the third
Tuesday of each month, but craft
sessions are open every Tuesday
from 10.30am, and you can stay
on and play cards after 2.30pm.
“It’s a very casual atmosphere
at CWA these days, and we’d love
to have some new members,” said
COMING from the Barossa, full
of rich German heritage, I grew up
with many German names.
I loved (and still do)pronouncing
Saegenschnitter, Grosskopf, Burge-
meister, Sickerdick, Kassebaum,
Schubert, Schulz, Schutz and Schutz,
(obviously a family dispute in there
somewhere!) Schmidt, Heintze,
Krause and Klingner - and more!
As you know, Australian Luther-
ans, who migrated from Germany,
have a strong connection with the
Barossa Valley and winemaking.
The Lutheran settlement brought
with them expertise in grape growing
There’s even a Lutheran Win-
emakers’ Club which produces
classic cases of wine once or twice
a year, with proceeds going to the
church’s mission work.
Winemakers, like Hentschke’s
and Whistler’s Wines, are involved,
and many winemakers say having a
a great way
to meet new
glass of wine with others is a great
way to socialise.
Coming up on November 3, is the
annual LLL at Balaklava Lutheran
Church. (There will also be others
around our district). The idea is
to have a long lunch, not only the
longest tables possible, long relaxed
hours spent eating, drinking and talk-
ing, but the longest meals stretching
from New Zealand, across Australia,
and ending in WA.
It’s part of Mission Outreach,
called “Operation Connect,” reach-
ing out through hospitality and
connecting everyone from different
walks of life. It’s a great way to meet
new people, so get a group of your
friends together and come along to
enjoy a meal and glass of wine.
You can attend church service at
11am or just come along for the lunch
at 12.30pm in the hall. For catering
purposes, please RSVP to Jutta on
8862 1633 by October 27.
Get in the pink
FRIENDS in Pink is holding its
Mini-Field of women at Balaklava
Triangle this Friday at 10.30am.
Everyone is invited to attend to
pay tribute to all those affected by
breast cancer in our community.
Each year, people hang pink
tags on the pink lady silhouettes in
memory of their loved ones lost to
breast cancer, but this year, everyone
is invited to hang a yellow tag on the
pink silhouettes to acknowledge all
other cancers. Following this, eve-
ryone is welcome to have a cuppa
and cake at Wendy’s Cafe.
