Names

Yesterday Claire said she treated someone from... wait... she couldn't remember. She said the name was funny (as if Moose Jaw isn't) and that it's close to the US border. So I just pulled up google maps and had a look around. Now I can't work out if it's "Radville" (although it sounds like a place I'd like to live), "Brokenshell", "The Gap", "Surprise Vally" or perhaps it's near "Big Muddy Lake". "Hart Butte", "Willow Bunch"?

Crazy place.

That is all

We have a place called 'The Gap' over on the north side. It's near Keperra and Enoggera. And the nearest really big shopping centre is in Indooroopilly. And Gary works in Toowong. Hmm, what else? Oh yes, further up the coast is a place called Maroochydore, which for some reason my mother kept pronouncing as Makiadory. The big cricket ground is in Woollongabba.

We're swimming in odd names here.

I think USA has a couple interesting names too. Maybe South African town names don't look weird because they are in Dutch or French or Zulu ... etc.

So nice to see you are both still around - was starting to miss the news. We are moved now and will send you pics once we have a phone line in about a MONTH - how crap is that given I live in a first world country - honestly....

Scotland too has its plethora of names to keep you guessing - try telling the taxi driver to get you home to "Ballinluig" or "Auchtermuchty" after a heavy night!

Speak soon - and did you know you have a new cousin Julia as of Friday 22nd?

If you came across a town called Andrew or Claire, that would be pretty unusual.

Well we've got George !
