As many Australian place names seemed to fit well into the Wizard of Oz Werewolf of Oz theme, such as there being an Emerald at the end of the travel quest in Queensland, I just found out this morning that this year’s Australia Day is at the end of the week where we say goodbye to the WoO serialisation.
Australia Day Sunday 26th January
Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Yes, I was alerted to the fact that it is Australia Day this Sunday, January 26th, by a Shooters sports bar advert.
I had already been thinking of dragging out Goodbye to WoO week as long as possible, and this gives me the perfect excuse.
So now you know, the final part of the Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps serialisation will be this Sunday.
