  1. Hi there Dave,

    You along with the Australian cartoonist, poet and living Australian treasure – Michael Leunig have been that thin red velvet thread that has held me in there with mother Church of England this past decade or so. I discovered your cartoons and your oeuvre in the loo of our good friend John McIntyre, Bishop of Gipsland Australia.

    We moved to the UK 4 years ago, and somehow mysteriously at Friday’s Evensong I have found myself Canon of Rochester Cathedral. So unfamiliar is this Deacon girl from down under with Cathedral life, that she was completely unaware she has a specially desiginated choir stall. Let alone her Casalb was not kosher for the occassion.

    I posted in FB on Friday morning “Having smudged red lipstick on the white surplice getting ready for rehearsal for being collated as honorary canon this afternoon, I heard my own ghostly whispers “and that’s another reason why we don’t really like woman in holy orders”!!!”

    You are often quoted in dispatches like on Friday as I met with a young female mother clergy and I shared your church kitchen cartoon imagery as I was reminiscing with her about my torrid 2 years with sweet kindly pharisees at a Methodist church who managed to have every inch of their building, doors, cupboards locked – so much so, that at 10.28 30 mums, dads and children and I as church family worker, were locked out of church worship which began at 10.30. The 5 star kitchen was never used as no one could reach the standards of the OHS officer – which brought tears to my eyes, as in Australia, where we have scant resources, people, money etc – our postage sized kitchen created feasts for our inner city community.

    So thank you to you for the joy you give us and for a Dave Walker daily advent calendar!

  2. ((hugs)) Good words Sally.

    Good on you Dave. Keep going with the advent calendar, we all know you can do it! (or, something mostly resembling it).
