Snow at the pines - 20:38
At the northern end (full size)
Near the exit of the pines (full size)
As Crash and a few
others have mentioned, the snow that fell yesterday in inner city Canberra was
a somewhat rare occurrence. After Crash had the fun of riding in the snow, I
got a bit of that experience this morning also. There was still a fair amount
of the stuff on the ground at Majura Pines and in th vineyard and surrounding
areas this morning. Ron Brent had his camera phone with him this morning so
took a few photos, two of which I have uploaded here.
It is almost a shame I will not be in Canberra this weekend, last year Crash,
Jaymz and I headed out to the brindies for a ride up Warks Rd to Bulls Head
with the last few KM in the snow, that was a heap of fun and it would be a
good weekend to do that now too. Ahh well.
I let myself in with this chainsaw - 09:10
I was rereading the Liberty
Meadows "Big Book of Love" last night at home. A reprint of most of the
1997 run of Liberty Meadows strips. One strip had Leslie in Frank's room going
on about being sick with some other random disease. The end of the strip Frank
asks Leslie how he got in. Leslie answers "I let myself in with this chainsaw"
and he is pictured holding one. So sure the context may just confuse the
issue, and maybe you had to be there, but I cracked up big time. I think that
would be a great title for a blog "I let myself in with this chainsaw".
Anyway for anyone who wants some more obvious humour, go have a look at what
list of things to do.
