Feb 2016 to Now
Waiting for a safe world.
Well not quite… up until April 2020 we were taking care of Joann’s dad, Joe. It’s been a wild ride giving him a fabulous last 5 years. He passed on April 2nd, 2020 at 98 years. Went quickly and never really suffered the full effect of the Covid lockdown.
We’ve been in a holding pattern waiting for the Vaccine. Now we are both double Vaxed and double Boostered so we finally have plans to head back to SE Asia the end of October 2022. Not to say living in good ol’ Victoria has in any way, been a hardship, oh contraire.
