AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Methinks thou torture...us poor Northern hemisphere slobs moving into winter, no flowers, drab brown greenery, yet there's a bright side, we've had unusually mild weather of late, very unusual for November, usually we'd have a snow by now. Maybe it'll be a mild winter this year...cross them fingers and toes for us down there...heehee!

See ya tomorrow...I haven't even got a shadow yet...could be a close one, I had to work all day in the drab rainy weather and will work tomorrow too...errrrr!!!
