Thinking of Leguan and the COVD19 April 5, 2020

Filed under: Uncategorized — Leguanite @ 5:58 pm

I am a Leguanite through and through and although I do not have as many family members as I did when I was growing up there I still care about what happens to my Island. I am hoping that being surrounded by water will protect my people.. It is easy to curtail the number of visitors.

I want to emphasize, this is not something to play with. This virus is deadly and has killed close to 60,000 people world wide and it is not finished yet.

You must follow the protocols set out by the professionals and experts in the field: Keep your distance from other at least six feet. Avoid crowds, stay home, cough or sneeze in your sleeves. Wear a scarf, handkerchief, bandana over your mouth and nose when you go outside. If you feel sick do not mingle with others. Stay indoors. If you follow these simple instructions you will drastically reduce your risk of getting this virus or passing it on to someone else.

Please be safe act responsibly and take this time of isolation to get to know you better.

Love you all.

 

True Leguanites – Herman and Lynette Austin February 3, 2019

If you know Papa and Rita Austin you know Herman.  He married his childhood sweetheart Lynette and they lived happily every after.   They must be one of the oldest couples in Phoenix Leguan.  Herman was a star batsman on Phoenix Team when he was younger and Lynette, well she was always shy and a behind the scene kind of person but she loved her man to bits.

I grew up in their yard a lot and did a lot of errand for mama Rita her mother in law.  Lynette was always a kind and generous spirit and we got along well.

I remembere them with fondness. I am sure they are one of the oldest couples in the village. God bless them.

Happy Indian Arrival Day To my Guyanese brothers and sisters May 6, 2017

indian arrivalday

Aunty Chalma, 89, is the oldest surviving worker of the Leonora Sugar Estate. Her parents were born in India and came to Guyana to work on the sugar plantations. Aunty Chalma cut the ribbon to open the open-air museum on Indian indentureship at the Indian Monument Gardens in Georgetown this afternoon. While today is Arrival Day in recognition of all the peoples who came to Guyana, it remains Indian Arrival Day in recognition of the first set of Indian workers who came to then British Guiana on May 5, 1838.
