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)

Oh friend, I needed a break away from the weather to come walk the sunny, sandy shores of your world, mines a bit nippy right now. I'm taking a break from the two foot drifts that keep me from leaving the house...such is winter in the Heartland!

But you in Australia have your own issues right now, hope the typhoon is coming to an end, those poor people, I've been through a hurricane(Charlie) and it ain't no fun!

Take care my friend, enjoy a few rays for me aye!

The danish newspapers are writing that we wash our clothes in to cold water, so it's still dirty and full of bacteries etc.
Your sign tells the true :-D

LOL.. :) If it was my mom, she'd stay away from there.. even if it was a pun or catchy titling :D Nice photo and haiku..!

Interesting sign. I guess you could say they are in the recycling business. Keep on clicking.

Anything to draw attention. Which, I guess, is what marketing is all about.

I might be reluctant to shop there, but I think I would be curious. Guess the very young might find it attractive. Good find!

Ebie said...

Very intriguing sign. At first, I thought it was a laundromat.

Lesley said...

I thought it was a laundromat, too!
We have stores called Garage Clothing and Garbage - both seem to feature jeans and very young sales staff! But this would intrigue me to at least peek inside.

I prefer clean clothing, but I'd be curious...

How funny Gemma! That sign lends itself to all kinds of interpretations (and I am probably too old to have even thought of some of them ;>)....
