Sydney Opera House

Okay, I’m back.  Just in case you’re wondering why I’ve not been responding to “Likes” and other stuff, I’ve been away for since April 8 and just returned to El Paso only last night.  Where have I been this past month?  Three nights in Sydney, Australia, followed by a transpacific cruise to Seattle, Washington.
