My mother still has friends who she met during her teenage years. One, who's husband is a retired Anglican Archbishop, is moving from Brisbane to the Northern Territory. Because they will be extremely busy in the lead up to christmas and they want to let people know of their change of address, they have already sent out christmas cards. Christmas cards in October indeed.
A couple of years ago when we were on holiday in the Northern Territory, we drove through the town where they are going to settle. I always thought the name was very odd and perhaps even that the place was mythical.
But no, Humpty Doo is a real place with a not so real large boxing crocodile.
