Summary (IBList user synopsis):

Josephine and Allan McRae are returning to Earth after a three year stint on the moon. They are fed up with the "pressurized rabbit warren" that they call home, the lack of blue sky, no rain, no country air--in short, they are homesick for Earth and swear never to return. It'll be great to be back... won't it?

First published in The Saturday Evening Post, 26 July 1947.
