2020 will go down in the history books as a pandemic year. Yet, regardless of that, I would be having my seventieth birthday. We Australians have been fortunate in how the powers-that-be have handled the pandemic (all except Victoria, but that’s another story). By the time November rolled around Queenslanders were out of lock down and allowed to travel freely within our own state. Pete and I decided to take a leisurely drive to Cairns and stay in an upmarket hotel for the Big Seven Oh. So, join us for the birthday bash.
