I never realised that Australia had mountains. It is also one of the last countries I would associate with snow, along with Jamaica. So, I learned something today.
The Snowy Mountains sounds very LOTR/mystical too. I'd love to visit but the distance, cost and temperature hold me back. Plus it's huge and I don't care much for cities. Or spiders, snakes, scary-looking bugs, or dying.


The chocolate spiders look yummy. (I hate glace cherries though so will drop mine discreetly in the bin...I know, I'm picky) Xmas is here and I envy all the people who get to eat roasted poultry stuffed to the brim with festive flavour and stuffing and post photos lol. I have no problem with being single but it sure does limit your options in the kitchen when you want to be "fancy". I'd be eating it for the next 2 weeks. The left-overs wouldn't fit in my camping fridge either lol.

Back to temperatures for a moment.... I understand you have a rather important visitor arriving soon. Will you be turning the airco on at first to help them get acclimatised gently? Us Northen-hemispherers might be overwhelmed with such a wall of heat when that airplane door opens. Just trying to help!

@phoenix Umm, call me a scaredy-cat but exposed flesh near a source of hot oil spitting about all over the place really doesn't sound like fun. I think Xmas in summer weather is weird. Conditioning I guess. Then again, snow is hugely over-rated too. It looks great the first day but after that, euch! Slipping and sliding.

kaelci?

I will be entirely, unequivocally honest with you....
I am allergic to sports.



a reply to: LightSpeedDriver

My very important visitor has a similar climate to me, minus humidity and summer storms. He just had a 32C day, it's 30 there today, and it's almost winter; he'll be fine. I'm only a tyrant in my storywriting
the aircon can go on if he requests it, but I doubt he will.

Plus it's huge and I don't care much for cities. Or spiders, snakes, scary-looking bugs, or dying.

Australia is practically the size of America, but with significantly less people. We have our cities, and lots of townships with less than 15,000 people. I'm in one of those thankfully, I am most definitely not a city person *shudder*. I'm also near a rather mountainous region, so my temperatures aren't quite as horrid as those elsewhere.

Also, I'd be more afraid of the magpies than the spiders, snakes, and strange bugs.

Why are the magpies so....Alfred Hitchcock? We have magpies in the UK, they steal shiny stuff and possibly laugh about it in the trees while they decorate their nests with it. I guess all the spiders make them aggressive....?

I too prefer smaller places. 650,000 people here in Rotterdam, give or take. Public transport is pretty regular though, bus, tram, metro/subway/tube. I travel non-peak hours. You meet the weirdest people sometimes.

True story:

Last night I was on my way back home in the sub-subterranean transport and I get talking to a passenger. (Actually he starts talking to me but whatever...) He had one of those police GPS ankle thingies on and was drunk, but in a good way. We walked home together because we both live close by the same stop. He unfortunately couldn't remember the name of his stop so I helped him. Absolutely hilarious.

Fun fact: If you were to give every person on the planet 3/4's of an acre we would all fit in Australia with room left over.

You call that small ? 😳 I live in a city of 250,000 and I think it's too big. 10 to 15 thousand would be my ideal.. even smaller.

Perhaps I expressed it incorrectly, I only talk English here, not in real life anymore. I guess I need more practice.

"It's pretty darned big here!"

I also have my finger in some Marmite, in my defence....

That does sound like a nice community number.. I would prefer that type of community as long as there was access to good doctors, dentists ,etc.

We have everything we need within driving. I love it. One red light town and I think it's just for looks.

We also have a college so during school we are a little more active.

Sorry I missed all you lovely people earlier!

Gordi, Christmas in The Shed Lands is one of my favorite videos ever!

Light, I can't stand the heat myself and noooo, it is not Christmas if it's like Summer weather. That is too weird for me too! LOL

Wis, loved your photo!

Oh I missed too much to keep up and reply to everyone. So sorry!

Sorry for your loss Timely.


Hello everyone! Got the Grandsons tonight. They are enjoying their 1 show right now. Mater's tall tales. LOL Nana is mean and doesn't let them watch much tv. We play pretty hard! LOL They are 4 now. Man they grow up fast.

Thank you Raine !

At least it was quick. Mum was 84, she was experiencing shortness of breath and called an ambulance. As she was being taken into the hospital she had a massive stroke that she did not regain conciousness from.

Much better than being trapped in a useless body as some stroke victims find themselves ...

Appreciate every day and immerse yourself in the wonders of nature !


Ed: Thanks Chiefs ! I hope you are well !

My sincere condolences Timely. I hope you have company around you when you need it and peace and quiet when you don't. It's always too soon but 84 doesn't sound too bad.

Respects

I can't remember 4 but I can remember being 5. I was a little bugger, hyperactive, talkative (mainly to myself) and high on sugar. Sigh.... I never went anywhere without my pillow and I sucked my thumb. Sigh...

So very true Dave! I forget how long my Mom lasted after her stroke...days a week, I don't like thinking about it, but she lived a very long and happy life. Now I am fighting very hard to keep Mark from having one again. With his combined health problems, it is scary as hell. He has no paralysis and had what they called a silent stroke, but he had a mild one years ago. He is not a cat with 9 lives, though sometimes I wonder.

HUGS!

Kids do grow up fast. It's good that they don't watch a lot of t.v and that you play hard with them. I have seen my Nieces and Nephews grow into adulthood with children of their own now. I feel old. LOL
