This evening The Doctor and I have been having a wonderful talk.  You know the one, eye to eye across the table, sincerity, hand holding, and smiles.  We started naming things about Australia and our trip here that we love and/or are grateful for.  The list started getting long, so we decided to give it a place on honor:  a post on this blog!

I'm sure we will forget at least half of our list, but here is a good sampling:

Oddly enough, our list started with me saying, "I like having lizards in our house!"

We then continued with this list:
