First full day... food and family.

We did what we always do when we first arrive in Melbourne. We made a beeline for the Dendy Deli with the family. I had possibly the yummiest lamb souvlaki I've ever had in my life... so good. We had our favorite waiter there who looks out for us and keeps us well fed and happy too. Then we walked up and down Church St. a bit to make some gift returns and exchanges for some of the lovely things my inlaws had bought for us as presents but as typical ingrates we weren't able to use.

We're now waiting for more of the family to come over to say "hello" and to point and laugh at us as the jetlag makes us more and more incoherent throughout the evening. I'm pretty good right now but I definitely feel a fogginess building again in my brain...hope I can blame the jetlag for this for the next decade or so.

Here's a pic of my lovely girl modeling her own new creation called "The Chained Scarf". We're willing to take orders for these one of a kind finger-knitted beauties. Let me know if you feel you can't live without one and I'll start putting her to work in the sweat shop to make them.

Oh my goodness. I think you may very well be the most dedicated blogger on the planet. You are logging in while on vacation in Australia. Amazing!

Now, if you are reading this, shut down the computer and go and enjoy yourself. We'll all be here when you get back. :)

Hi, Jan,
Nice to hear from you. I wish you all a great vacation. When are you gonna go for that Neenish tart?
Miss you,

PS: I have been thinking about the laughing yoga. It was just plain fun. Well, please take a minute now to practice the laughing yoga!
