Tullawalla Booklets, at “Grill’d” On Pakington Street

Here I am at “Grill’d” On Pakington Street

Enjoying a few relaxing beers

I introduce myself to Ryan, chef and barman, in charge

We chat about our travel adventures

Then I happened to mention that I’m a writer

And he’s genuinely interested in my poetry booklets

After talking about the purpose of my writings

Ryan enthusiastically agrees to display a couple of my books

On the restaurant’s customer magazine rack

I’m humbled, and smiling, beyond pleased

I explain to Ryan, there’s an advert inside the covers

Informing the readers, that they may purchase the books

A few blocks down, on Pakington Street

At the counter of the M.S. Charity shop

With all proceeds going to the M.S. Society

I gratefully shake Ryan’s hand

And I say I’ll be back regularly, to change-over the booklets

Cheers To Ryan, and a sincere thank you to “Grill’d” On Pakington Street.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

      1. I’m on a roll Colleen, the owner of the Box Office Café, that I wrote about last, has also generously put my poem booklet on display on his magazine table, wow.. another chance to raise more money for the MS Society… I’m thrilled with the support my booklets are getting here along Pakington Street. Hopefully patrons will go and purchase some of my booklets at the MS Charity shop


      2. The whole process gives me a me a me a glorious feeling of purpose and achievement, and I know Carole is smiling at how my poems are helping out the MS Society ❤️❤️☺️


    1. I’m on a roll, the Box Office Cafe, that I wrote about last week, is also displaying my booklet today, with an advert in the cover, to buy my books at the M.S. charity shop,… and again the owner was happy to help out the M.S. Society. Yeah !! it’s all so super cool, and of course I’m very touched and emotional at the moment xxxx
