Back in Indianapolis we have done almost everything Indianapolis has to offer. We have visited Costco and Whole Foods, Kezza loved both of these.
We went to the Zoo which has Lorikeets and Budgerigars. I felt quite at home when a Lorikeet perched on my shoulder and pecked at my ear.
And in May they are getting a Koala which will stay until September. I will hang out and chew some gum leaves with it.
Kezza and Hansel and Gretel left today to go home via Houston and Los Angeles. Silence has fallen upon the house and Robbie is out and about doing his thing.
Now that I have fulfilled my grandfatherly duties I can start doing the immense pile of stuff I have to do around the house and garden.
Saturday is ANZAC day and there is a formal function being hosted for Aussies and Kiwis by Indiana University. I had no idea why this was happening until I found out that the President of IU is an Australian – and incidentally knows Cate’s brother.
Did I tell you that we also found out that we have relatives living a few blocks from us? Weird.
Anyway we have rounded up all the Aussies and Kiwis – there are about thirty of us – and will have our ceremony along with some honorary Aussies and Kiwis. After that there may be Lamingtons, Anzac biscuits and Billy tea.
