Assuming Qantas isn’t on strike, we’ll be off to North America in less than six days! The kids are looking forward to seeing their grandmother’s menagerie of cats and the raccoon mob that gathers at dusk every night (my mother feeds them!), and this will be the first time that Cherie has met many of my relatives. I’ll have several copies of the My Planets CD-ROM available for them to view. And thanks to CreateSpace, copies of the print book version well before the book is released back in Australia. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Corned Beef sandwiches at Slyman’s are bound to be highlights.
