Suze:
Don't let the paper pushing depersonalized bureaucrats get you down. "Illigitimis Non Carborundum!".
As for gender angst, why not tell Willow when she arrives that she's going to be called "mate" Aussie style. That takes care of all possibilities.
Today is some kind of National Cat Day in the U.S. Check out the nice Op. Ed.. in the N.Y. Times.
I lived in Kansas City and spotted a twister about a half mile away.. The chances of you're getting hit by one are miniscule compared with a car accident.

Suze, Keep your eye on weather forecasts. you're 1 1/2 hours north of me and I don't plant annuals till Mother's Day, or later. Just make sure you cover them, if you get a freeze. I too am itching to get gardening

Hello love....and thank you, and they were only one dollar forty nine for six petunias, and if they freeze I will learn my lesson and plant them when you tell me I should have planted them.

Try covering them with plastic grocery bags if frost is in the forecast

When we lived in Brooklyn Heights I certainly could not afford $1.49 for even six petunias, much less afford all the stuff that you have.! My annual income was only $3500 ($1300 went for rent). The only plant we had was a Rose of Sharon that someone else had planted (maybe Henry Ward Beecher if he got a break from fooling around with his friend) and there was a naked man in a window just across the way. As you know we had a black cat, which we named the Monster of Depravity, who beat up all the other neighborhood cats. Our family was poor, but we were very tough. So tough that folks might have mistaken us for Aussies.

Ah ha...Aussies are very tough....I know that I am most definitely made of the strongest stuff. But I get that from my parents, who were Scottish and English from Russian and Polish parents. It is indeed an interesting mix.

As many of our friends here know, I have been very poor for years....it is only because of my dad's hard work that I have any money now. Nick and I decided to use a little to set up, and then my amazing man is going to take care of me. I am blessed all around.

And Bill ~ I appreciate beyond belief every single thing that we have bought for our home....I have NEVER had nice things of any kind before. Never. Until recently, the only things I have ever bought myself are the two laptops I own and my plane tickets to come here.

This is all very, very new for me. And it is new for Nick as well.
We just walk around our home every day and smile in disbelief....this is really ours. This is our life together ~ just the beginning in fact.

And your cat was truly gorgeous....I hope we can have a black cat. I really do.

So much love to you and your wife and wonderful Bosley.

You are indeed. Tough, loving, caring, observant, resourceful, and smart as a whip

We will definitely have a black cat... it's time to start looking.

You have set us up so well, in such an amazing surroundings. Thank you so very much for all you have done for us. I am really looking forward to supporting us financially from here on... and to taking care of you every day for the rest of our lives

Hi Suze!
I am SO HAPPY that you are beginning a new life. Russian, Polish,
Scottish, Irish! Now that's tough! And when you mix in Aussie I doubt that it gets any tougher than that. America is privileged to have folks like you and Nick.
One of my favorite movies is the one about Gallipoli in WW1 and the bravery of the Aussie's there. The so called "lost battalion", all gone, victims of English generals' blunders as well as misjudgment by Mr. Churchill.

Fondly

Bill and Boswell
