"Hi Luba & Chris,
Cheryl and I would like to thank you for our wonderful stay at your house in mid-October. You may remember us - we were the twins and were on our way south to the Snowy 60th reunion in Cooma, where we had a fabulous time! Anyway, you were delightful company, made us feel welcome, and your apartment was lovely. Thank you for helping us out with directions, too. Our entire stay in Australia was just wonderful and we have fond memories of people we met and of places we stayed, like Practically Lakeside B&B." Carol & Cheryl ... California
