There Ain't No Way To Hide Your Lion Eyes

Yep, it's summer. The universities have closed for the year. There are Christmas carols playing in all the shops. The schools are winding down for the long break. The beaches are preparing for the onslaught. Oh yes, and the ice cream manufacturers are ready to rake in the profits. Paddle Pops are a big Aussie favourite, as you can see by this sign on a footpath outside a milk bar, or what the rest of the world would call a corner store, or a convenience store.
Yesterday we actually had thunderstorms in the morning and the temperature dropped a bit, but by mid-afternoon the sun was out again and it was steamy and humid and hot. When I got home, I left my car windows down and half an hour later when I opened the front door I realised the weather had done a complete turnaround and it had started raining again. So of course my car seats were very damp and I got a bad attack of WBS - Wet Butt Syndrome!
