I, of course, did the right thing and asked if Mary would like to visit Australia. Mary's response, "Of course not. I don't know you." She did however ask if I would like to visit America. Which, within two weeks, I did.
Mary met me Thursday, 29th November, taking me to her apartment at 10705 Yukon Ave. S, Bloomington, Minniapolis.
