A group of Aussie friends from Adelaide and the Barossa had scheduled a going away part for us in mid-April.
However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison just banned … well, I’m really not quite sure what he banned. Pretty much the same rules that were just put in place in California, I think.
Rules about how many people can attend any get-together. About how far apart those people must stand. The new rules mean we couldn’t sit down together at a table. Couldn’t share food. Couldn’t do much of anything that actually falls under the definition of the word party.
Looks like we’ll be here for at least another 90 days. So we can worry about a going away party somewhere down the road.
We miss everyone at home in America, but we love our Aussie friends, too, and will miss them when they finally let us leave.
