Instead of G’day Mate, it’s Bon Voyage to Dave and Karen, who are happy as a box of birds to be headed Down Under for several months. This will be bonzer for them as they’ll get to lob-in and chin-wag with daughters and sons-in-law Jen and Vince, Lynnette and Brad and the nine grandkids they have in Oz.
But, by jingoes, they are in the cactus with Chloe and Soho, who are spitting the dummy at the thought of their favorite housesitters heading for Bulla Manka.
The rest of us are more or less resigned to seeing them head off to the Lucky Country since we’re pretty certain we’ve got Buckley’s Chance of changing their minds about going off to the land of joeys and the Bushman’s Clock. So instead of flogging the cat we decided to make the best of it and put some shrimp on the barbie in their honor. Twice, since they’re so special!
The CE’s sister, Gail, arrived for a holiday visit with bf Paul and her famous pesto in tow (the word is, you can get it past the TSA agents as long as it’s frozen solid…good to know!) so we gathered again last night:
The travelers are soon off to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in Hawaii and will then shoot on through to the Great Southern Land. We wish you well from the Coathanger to Brizzie and we have no doubt you’ll return to us fair dinkum Aussies!
