Caine, I was going to call it 'Not Snow. Yet'

mrs 540, your outfit was outstanding at the meet. I have sent you an email asking for another email address, one to which I can attach the photo.

These are so beautiful. I can almost feel the chill in the air. Canada is so beautiful in Autumn...

and Oz is beautiful in spring. been following your weather. HOT. at least you can go swimming.

jesson says:

Spring is a special time in Oz. :-) Its been about 30C today with 30% humidity... nice and comfortable. Not too hot. ;-) I was in Vancouver about 15 years ago during a heat wave- it was 23C. I barely got out of my track pants and jumper. I learnt the lesson never to believe the travel brochures when they say "summer is mild'. Mild is whatever you want to make of it...

Leaves, leaves everywhere. I dare say that the hardware stores sells a few leaf rakes in the past month or so

19th Oct 2006, 14:01

swamprose says:

Hey J. I thought you were 'gone' into the never never. Yes, we have rakes. Metal, bamboo, short, long, wide, thin..but I leave mine alone. They make a mulch protection against the freezing..sorry it's probably about 40 where you are..

19th Oct 2006, 14:05

Jigalong says:

Well the never never didnt have any aircon, so four days and three nights was quite long enough thanks very much.

19th Oct 2006, 14:21

swamprose says:

what's the australian translation of 'wimp'?

19th Oct 2006, 14:28

Jigalong says:

I believe its wos, like "you woosie"
(Sounds like pussy, with a w).

Thanks for your sympathy,

Geodyne says:

I spell it "wuss", but it's still pronounced the way Jigalong describes!

19th Oct 2006, 14:55

Jigalong says:

They doent really teach you how to spell Aussie slang at school for some strange reason:)

19th Oct 2006, 23:44

jesson says:

LOL! How does conversation about Aussie slang spelling get onto a Canadian's moblog??? I love that we all want to know and understand each other...

A lack of aircon wouldn't have been what put me off Parrngurr or the 40+C... its the things that bite.... snakes, bugs... :-)

20th Oct 2006, 04:56

Geodyne says:

Don't you think that slang spelling classes ought to be mandatory? They do it for urban American...

Jesson: Swamprose has a wonderfully enquiring mind. We get all sorts of fascinating conversations arising from questions she asked.

And oddly enough, the bities wouldn't turn me off Parrngurr, but the heat would - I more or less grew up in NQld, and there's a reason I no longer live in the tropics! I've had enough heat to last me a lifetime...

jesson says:

Don't we have slang spelling infiltrating our everyday communications already?? eg text messaging and just plain terrible spelling (apart from typos). :-) My students have enough trouble getting the spelling of their name and a few basics right without confusing the issue with all the slang.

Did you see the interview with Terri Irwin after the death of Steve? She was joking about him saying 'Good on ya mate' and she asked ' I've got what on me??' How would you ever sort out the accents and then there's regional dialects and meanings for words. I once nearly got punched in the face when I said someone was 'slack'. 'Slack' to me means lazy, but to that person meant she was a prostitute. Oh dear!!!!

(swallowed your bait hook line and sinker, eh! ;-) )
