I borrowed this from Facebook.


Today it is Australia Day and ain’t it bloody great,
to cook a chop and drink a beer because we celebrate.
We celebrate our heritage and those who came before,
we celebrate this wide brown land from centre to the shore.

We lift our heads and banner high for those who fought and died,
we raise our glasses to the ones who failed but really tried.
We sing the praise of winners in all their chosen sport,
we toast ol’ Mother Nature for the lessons we are taught.

We drink with Jock or Pat ‘cause they’re all Aussies now,
we doff our hat to those who mine or those who use the plough.
For we are all Australians and I’m telling you ol’ mate,
I’m proud to be an Aussie ‘cause Australia’s bloody great!!

We share our land for many to come and see,
we give them the Australian Courtesy.
We send them home with great Australian Memories.
Why because were Australian,
Australia’s bloody great!!

I saw your blog header on Saturday, so, John and I decided to watch Crocodile Dundee II that night, to celebrate Australia with you. He's been keeping me up with your flooding tales from facebook. Hope all is well now. He even found your house on Google (he thinks) and showed it to me.
