It's Australia Day today in The Land Down Under ( where women glow and men thunder). Depending on which side of the fence you're on, it's also called Invasion Day. This unique country, which is also a continent and a planet, was the subject of another post where we laid aside some of the mysteries - mysterious only to US citizens, actually, who as a whole are sadly lacking in geographical knowledge and even a fleeting interest of the same.
My dear friend - I'll call her Diane - is from Australia. She told me that in America the holiday is called Hug an Australian Day. So now you have it! You have got to find yourself an Australian to hug today.
The Official Bird of Australia
I gave my friend - I'll call her Diane again - a hug at church yesterday. Otherwise I would have to go visit her today to give her a hug but she's probably having Vegemite sandwiches for lunch, so I thought better of it.
I also told Diane that I would post her address in case anyone does not have an Australian of their own to hug they can stop by and see "Diane".
Happy Australia Day to our Aussie Friends!
Stop by tomorrow! There is a mystery afoot! A missing gem, a thickening plot, a famous detective......
