WWII veteran’s postcard delivered 77 years later

<p><span>A letter written over 77 years ago by a World War II veteran has finally made its way home to his family.</span><br /><br /><span>Bill Caldwell was a little over 18 years old when he joined England's Royal Navy.</span><br /><br /><span>During his first week of training, he sent a postcard to his family back home.</span><br /><br /><span>The note was addressed to Mr Caldwell's "Uncle Fred" and was postmarked 1943 with a stamp saying: "Post early in the day."</span><br /><br /><span>Strangely enough, the postcard was not delivered to his childhood home, where some of his relatives still live, until February 2021 – over 77 years later.</span><br /><br /><span>While Uncle Fred has since died as well as Mr Caldwell 25 years ago, Fred's daughter Joanna Creamer said reading the 77-year-old postcard was "surreal".</span><br /><br /><span>"Well I am in blue at last. I did not think it would be like this – you don't get much time for yourself, do you?" the postcard said, according to the BBC.</span><br /><br /><span>"But I like it alright.</span><br /><br /><span>"I will write a letter to you all when I get half a chance so will you hold on a bit? I have 19 weeks here yet.</span><br /><br /><span>"Give my love to everyone.

"Proud mum moment": Sylvia Jeffreys can't wait for second bub

<p>Sylvia Jeffreys is one busy mum. When she's not in the TV spotlight alongside David Campbell on hit breakfast show<span> </span><em>Today Extra</em>, she's at home getting ready for the arrival of her second baby boy as well as looking after one-year-old Oscar.</p> <p>Thankfully, her mum Janine flew to Sydney to celebrate Oscar's first birthday so she's able to get some peace.</p> <p>Peace is quickly disrupted after Oscar is solidly standing and grabbing onto a flower.</p> <p>"To see him standing like this for an extended period is a first," Sylvia, 34, explained to <a rel="noopener" href="https://www.nowtolove.com.au/parenting/celebrity-families/sylvia-jeffreys-second-baby-66819" target="_blank"><em>Now To Love.</em></a></p> <p>"Because we're so on edge, waiting for him to take a few steps, which could happen any day now, we're always ready with the phone to capture that moment. This is a very proud mum moment."</p> <p>The Stefanovic and Jeffrey family waited for years for Oscar's arrival, who was conceived through IVF, despite Jeffreys being upset she might never have a child of her own.</p> <p>"There were a million stories written about me being pregnant while I was trying to get pregnant and not being able to," she said.</p> <p>"That was probably more upsetting than any of the other ridiculous things you read [about yourself] because it's just so insensitive."</p> <p>The second time round, the family is more prepared.</p> <p>"The second time around it was… spontaneous I'd say," Sylvia says, chuckling.</p> <p>"We hadn't planned to go down that path so soon, but having had not an entirely easy path the first time around, you can't be anything but thankful or grateful to have fallen pregnant this way.</p> <p>"Having said that, it's definitely a tight turnaround and people think we're nuts! When we tell them our boys will be 14 or 15 months apart, they roll their eyes and say, 'Good luck!' But the silver lining is that, with the world being the way it is right now, we're not missing out on anything being stuck in the baby bubble. So we may as well stay here in the zone and ride it out."</p> <p>Despite wanting a big family like the one she grew up with, Jeffreys is quick to joke she's not Octomum.</p> <p>"Look, I'm no Octomom – we're not going to pump out a dozen," she says with a laugh.</p> <p>"But both Pete and I grew up really close to our cousins and aunts and uncles, and we'd like to replicate that for our children. We've been fortunate that, on both sides of our family, Oscar was born at a similar time to other babies. So we've got a lovely little gang of cuzzies, which is great."</p> <p><em>Today Extra</em><span> </span>co-host David Campbell has been incredibly supportive of the family as they continue to grow.</p> <p>"I get very overwhelmed when people tell me happy news like that," David admits. "The eyes start to water. It's not a very manly reaction, I know. It's very much in touch with my feelings. But I'm just overwhelmed for her because I saw what she and Pete went through, and how much Oscar means to them – just how invested they are with him.</p> <p>"To know it's going to happen all over again and it's going to be just as good? I'm so happy. I don't have more of a visceral reaction than that."</p> <p>"I love who Sylvia and Pete are as people, and they should create more humans because they are good people. We need more humans from them – that's a good combination in the world."</p>

Terri Irwin says family found "meaning of life" after Steve's passing

<p>A 2019 interview has resurfaced about how close the Irwin family are and how the passing of father Steve, 44, brought them closer together.</p> <p>Terri, 56, revealed that the tragic death of her husband made the bonds between the family even stronger and built the foundation for a family tie that is incredibly close.</p> <p>"We are a family who works together, lives together and holidays together – we spend almost every moment in each other's company, whether it's at Australia Zoo or on one of our conservation properties here in Australia or making a documentary somewhere in Africa, so it's vitally important that we have great relationships – and we do," says Terri to<span> </span><a rel="noopener" href="https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebrity/celeb-news/terri-irwin-steve-irwin-death-53777" target="_blank"><em>Now To Love</em></a>.</p> <p>"We communicate well, and I think it's a natural effect of losing Steve. I think we became closer and stronger as a family and we have developed this awareness that allows us to truly value the people closest to us even more than we already did.</p> <blockquote style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 540px; min-width: 326px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned="" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/p/CLARU85BvCU/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="13"> <div style="padding: 16px;"> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: row; align-items: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 50%; flex-grow: 0; height: 40px; margin-right: 14px; width: 40px;"></div> <div style="display: flex; flex-direction: column; flex-grow: 1; justify-content: center;"> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; margin-bottom: 6px; width: 100px;"></div> <div style="background-color: #f4f4f4; border-radius: 4px; flex-grow: 0; height: 14px; width: 60px;"></div> </div> </div> <div style="padding: 19% 0;"></div> <div style="display: block; height: 50px; margin: 0 auto 12px; width: 50px;"></div> <div style="padding-top: 8px;"> <div style="color: #3897f0; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: 550; line-height: 18px;">View this post on Instagram</div> </div> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;"><a style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none;" rel="noopener" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/CLARU85BvCU/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" target="_blank">A post shared by Bindi Irwin (@bindisueirwin)</a></p> </div> </blockquote> <p>"It's sad that it takes a tragedy such as Steve's death to amp that up in your life, but it does make you want to live every day to the fullest and appreciate the people you love.

Bindi Irwin shares how Steve Irwin inspired her baby's nickname

<p>Bindi Irwin is keeping her father's legacy alive, 15 years after his tragic death.</p> <p>Speaking to The Bump, the pregnant wildlife conservationist shared how her dad, Steve Irwin, inspired her and her husband Chandler Powell to nickname their daughter Baby Wildlife Warrior, ahead of her arrival.</p> <p>"My dad would have been the best grandfather," 22-year-old Irwin said. "I always joke that if he was still here, we'd never see our baby because he'd take her on all kinds of adventures! I want to make sure our baby girl gets to know my dad and thankfully, we have many documentaries and photos we can share with her. I think she'll love getting to watch footage of Dad working with all kinds of animals and learning about his legacy.</p> <p>"My dad was the first person to create the term 'Wildlife Warrior.' Being a Wildlife Warrior means to stand up and speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We've been referring to our daughter as our Baby Wildlife Warrior. I know in my heart that she will forge her own path to make our planet a better place."</p> <p>Steve tragically died in 2006 at 44 years of age after being pierced in the chest by a stingray in the Great Barrier Reef.</p> <p>But Bindi and Powell's baby-on-the-way isn't the only one who has been given a nickname, as mother Terri Irwin has been given a special moniker as a future grandmother.</p> <p>"My extraordinary mama is my best friend and I know that she is going to be such an amazing grandmother," Bindi gushed. "We spent a long time searching for grandma names that also had an animal link. We decided that she's going to be called 'Bunny.'"</p>

"Rude" note about barking dog divides internet

<p>An aggressive note from a "fed up" neighbour has gone viral as people argue the right and wrong way to alert others about a barking dog.</p> <p>The note was posted on Reddit, which has since gone viral due to the nature of the note.</p> <p>“Next time you leave your dog locked in a room while you’re gone, we’re calling animal control,” the note said.</p> <p>“P***** off annoyed neighbours.”</p> <p><img style="width: 375.1465416178195px; height:500px;" src="https://oversixtydev.blob.core.windows.net/media/7839855/7d910ff54c6d297417f5ba8a61edf3072d1ab168.jpg" alt="" data-udi="umb://media/e76f69bc0a0c4f209c23bb51386ef3bc" /></p> <div class="post_body_wrapper"> <div class="post_body"> <div class="body_text redactor-styles redactor-in"> <p>The dog owners wanted the note leaver to come forward.</p> <p>“If you live in Stone Oak and left this note on our (door) let’s talk this out like adults,” the dog owner’s Reddit post said.</p> <p>“We went to the vet for our other dog and were gone for 2 hours.</p> <p>“I’d love to explain since clearly it bothers you to hear noise at 2 pm on a Saturday afternoon.”</p> <p>Commenters were divided, as many had been in the note leavers shoes before.</p> <p>“This is def an overreaction from the note person but I will also say no one wants to listen to your dog lose its s*** For 2 hours. So maybe you’re also culpable,” another added.</p> <p>“It’s incredibly inconsiderate to subject your neighbours to noise like that for 2 damn hours,” one agreed.</p> <p>Others fought back, saying two hours wasn't that long.</p> <p>“What do you want them to do when they aren’t home? They can’t control the dog. My dog barked when we first moved into our apartment,” one person said.</p> <p>“Dogs bark and as long as they’re safe, with water, animal control isn’t going to do anything about it. Also 2 hours is nothing, 12 hours you have a big problem,” another replied.</p> <p>At the time of writing, the note leaver has not come forward.</p> </div> </div> </div>
