Australia Day - January 26

It was another grand celebration!
Our Aussie mates, Tim and Sandra, know how to throw a party! 

Sandra welcomed us all and as is the tradition,
she captivated us with her reading of 
"My Country"
by Dorothea McKellar

The love of field and coppice,
Of green and shaded lanes.
Of ordered woods and gardens
Is running in your veins,
Strong love of grey-blue distance
Brown streams and soft dim skies
I know but cannot share it,
My love is otherwise.

I love a sunburn country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror-
The wide brown land for me!

Larry added a few verses of his own! 

Good on ya Tim and Sandra, it was a ripper!
