One of us is retired (Marji). One of us was supposed to be retired (Jim). Instead of heading out in March to hike the 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail, we are headed to Melbourne, Australia where Jim will be working for 5 months and Marji will be taking advantage of being footloose and fancy-free in a new country! We will be leaving behind the promise of Spring and Summer in upstate New York!
This blog will be a journal of our time in Australia and Marji will will usually be the writer, but from time to time Jim may put in his 2 cents, which may be difficult, as we believe that AU has done away with their penny!
We have 2 sons, Tucker and Corey, and one daughter-in-law, Alison, who we hope will visit us at some point during our 5 month assignment.
