    I was with another ForumGardener, Okie - who, very surprisingly, is an Oklahoman! We were actually heading to Biloxi via Shreveport.. got to Baton Rouge, drove round and round and couldn't manage to leave Baton Rouge. Did some great sightseeing as we circled - antebellum houses, the uni campus, wonderful old magnolia trees... and on we spiralled. After a few hours... we stopped at a Mackers and I bunged on my most aussie accent and all the staff left their workspots and came out to show the kangaroo how to hop it the heck outtta Baton Rouge. Quite an adventure.. And, retrospectively, a load of fun.

    That's amazing. We thought it was just us!!!!!!!! GUFFAW. Or some kind of wicked southern conspiracy against northern strangers.... lure them into an endless loop and when they are bewildered completely, toss em to the crocs er gators in the swamp. Of course I'm actually far more southern than they are. Whatever south yall's got, I got DEEEEEEEEEEEPER south in Terra Australis, the Great South Land.

    Pooh on the doctor's apt, but as fer the rest. Why don't I email myself over directly and we can traipse around BR together, in search of mischief!! (Are we likely to find mischief in Baton Rouge?). Otherwise, you could zot over and plough a ski slope or two with me.

    No, Melbourne's a nice city. It was founded a bit differently from Sydney. Melbournians reckon they're descended from good English stock - serious people, with money and class. Sydney's original settlers were mostly Irish and London Cockney convicts - who'd done wicked things like stealing bread to prevent their kids from starving etc. They were evil, creative, bolshie (contrary), loud, brash, fun and had bad attitood. Both cities are big metropolises now, and international, but both have retained in their psyches traces of their beginnings. I'm a Sydney girl through and through and proud of it.

    You said you were originally from Illinois, I think. Where abouts?
