4th July Again

Mum, I know I need to become an Australian citizen. Just need to find the money and do the paper work. Life seems to always get in the way. Each year as Australia Day approaches I think of it.

Will you and Dad come down for the ceremony. I still remember what a wonderful ceremony it was when you and Dad did yours. Heh Tony, what about you. Want to join me?

Ok back to moving over from England to Australia. Mum I thought I worked it out all wrong but redid the dates. I am sure I was five years and nearly 4 months when we moved from England. That made you 25 and Dad 27. You were born early 1949 and Dad early 1947. Tony was 10 weeks off turning three. I was born March,1969 and we moved July 1974.
