Thank you all very much for your kind words
. Mainiac: Thank you to you and your wife - the picture is very cute
As for the fireworks - well, I don't really do anything for Australia Day anyway, and I don't go to the fireworks here in Sydney. Crowds, transport, etc., are a bit of a nightmare, and besides, my poor dog needs me at home as he is scared of the fireworks noise. Like Tim, I can hear them from my place, even though the city is app. 40 minutes train ride away (or about 30 kms away).
Ayewing - you did a good job with the pic
. Glad you had a great Aus Day with your relatives
