Never Too Late
Lianne dropped her bags in the lobby, looking around at their home for the next three weeks. “What do you think, Mom?”
“It doesn’t feel like Australia. Seems like any old hotel, any old where!”
Lianne couldn’t help but smile. “You’re not really complaining, are you? Not my fault you finally got your courage up and ready in your mid-seventies! I didn’t see us camping out in the Outback! You’re a little long in the tooth for that now, don’t you think?”
Mo frowned at her daughter. “Not like I had the chance till now. The men in my life either didn’t want to bring me or join me so now that I am free, dammit, there is no way I wanted to miss this.”
“We are here now and I’ve a bunch of excursions planned so you can finally see the land you’ve dreamt of. It’s never too late.”
