Australia Day

A day of events for us as a family.

"40 years ago today Sgt Pepper taught the band to play" ; but I digress. It was hot.There was a major.  petrol strike and my Dear Doctor spent the day delivering 7 babies. The 3 boys born all had James in their names in honor of James Cook who discovered Australia. My dear daughter Heather was born last but so worth waiting for. Today she officially turns 40. See previous post for celebration.

Moving right along in the history of the family 10 years or ago so my son-in -law Gene who's Birthday is tomorrow  became an Australian citizen. Like the rest of us he holds dual citizenship as a Kiwi with the country of his birth New Zealand. Go All Blacks!!

Oh for those who don't know it's the holiday and marks the last of summer. Back to school next week.

My Australia Day Aussie Hero's laundry bag for 2013. Go to my side bar tonight and check out all the amazing Australian themed laundry bags for deployed service personal. It was a challenge and so far there are over 60 entries.

Quilters know how to celebrate*!*!  giving.

Have a wonderful day everyone.  Terry

P.S. just checked it's 20 years ago today Sgt. Pepper taught the Band to Play. My memory is altered by a good line and I'm keeping it in the post.
