  1. Hi All: Cheryl and I loved your picture/word summary of the Australian venture. You all look very well in your photos. I guess travelling really agrees with you’all. Are you able to keep up the Canadian and World news? I’m really pleased with Justin Trudeau’s election. Harper had to go!
    Travel Safe,

    Uncle Wayne
