They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Woohoo Kathleen!! 😂😂😝

It would have been fantastic if every polling booth had an immunization booth and we could have got 80% of the population flu vaccinated. Would save about 800 deaths in Qld and prevent a lot of admissions and hospital bed days.

Lexy is famous now 😎

Kathleen Carey the celebrity

Yeaaah Kathleen 🎉🎉

Kathleen Carey looking good 😀
