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)

What a fabulous sky shot, cold and gray and windy here in Iowa today, but it'll be toasty at my Dad's house where the turkey is browning and all will soon meet!

Enjoy that wonderful sunshine for me too, I'll be back later, I want to tour your neighborhood...smooch!
