Do you see what that is? It's a boxing kangaroo light-up pen that was given to me by my Australian friends. I will be there in July teaching at Quilting in the Highlands out side of Sydney. Joe was not so sure he wanted to go with me - he thinks that Australia is like Southern California but with a much cooler accent (and no in-laws). So I had to promise (lie to) him that if he goes with me he will see LOTS of boxing kangaroos and we will certainly meet the real Tasmanian Devil. Now he wants to come with me. In fact, he says I had him at LOTS of boxing kangaroos. Welcome to my world. I can't wait for Joe's disappointment when the Tasmanian Devil's father is not wearing a Hawaiian shirt. My life feels like a bad cartoon episode.
