One of our shipmates and member Les “Sluggo” Shephard is doing it tough in hospital and at home in Mandurah,
If any member in the Mandurah area knows “Sluggo” or would like to support him with a visit, I would suggest ringing his wife Ramona on 9534 9697 to see if this would be OK.

It is a sad state of affairs and tough on both of them

Hi all

Had a phone call from Raomon this arvo and she reports that "her man" is making a slow recoverery from his latest trip to Perth hospital
His progress is slightly hampered by the fact that he contacted "golden staph" in the re-operation on the stint
They bought him back to mandurah where he picked up pretty quickly. The combination of the stroke, medication and dementia has been a big hurdle to overcome but he is making progress

:D
Had another call from the West this week and this time I actually had a good chat with Les himself, so things are on the improve.
His main problem apart from his physical disabilities are that his computer is in need of attention so that he can get back online again :roll: :roll:
