I've been meaning to do this for days...no time like the present!



Thank you for posting the map, Leslie. As you can see, Sydney (where I live) on the east coast, is a looong way from Perth on the west coast. I think it takes about 4 hours to fly from Sydney to Perth, across 3 time zones. It's a big country!  :)

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

From Sydney to Perth (driving) is 3951 km.

In the US, an equivalent trip would be from Cleveland, OH to San Francisco: 3958 km.

In Europe, an equivalent trip would be from Bergen, Norway, to Athens, Greece: 3952 km.

Anyway you look at it, it's a long trip!

Okay, I just have to post this, even though y'all will probably think I'm crazy.
I had the strangest dream last night, I mean really weird.
In the dream, Heath and I were hanging out together, while waiting for the results of my father's surgery.
(I should mention at this point my father is scheduled for major lung surgery tomorrow.)
I guess my Dad and Heath both have apparently been on my mind a lot lately.

Any dream interpreters out there?

And I would definitely be driving, NOT flying, 'cause I have a flying phobia. I NEVER fly! I'll be retiring later this year. Maybe I could drive across to Perth after I retire. Take my time and follow the coast, rather than going straight across the Nullarbor Plain. It would be a little adventure for me.

NavyVet, I can't interpret your dream, but I hope your father's surgery goes well tomorrow.  Please keep us posted.

Oh, and maybe if you post your dream over here:

someone will be able to interpret it for you.
