Learning Waltzing Matilda, I instantly knew Australia was the place for me I'd live like a swagman with my pet kangaroo and play under the shade of a Coolibah tree It was Christmas there in the summer—Cool! So, I'd greet Santa surfing into the bay and kids never had to go to school I'd just swim and play baseball all day! Why was I living in L.A. at seven when lucky kids lived in an Australian heaven? 1/23/22

I like this one, Robert, very much. It exactly reflects how a seven-year-old thinks!
