A WEEKEND OF STEENKING BLOODY HEAT HERE IN THE GODZONE . . . . SOME PLACES UP AT 49 CELSIUS, WE GOT LUCKY AND REACHED A MODERATE 38 YESTERDAY AND A POSITIVELY CHILLY 34 TODAY . . . . BEEN LIVING HERE NOW FOR THIRTY SEVEN YEARS, SUMMER STILL SHITS ME !!!
Yesterday . . . four fairly uncomfortable hours in the saddle, no matter where the Purple Penis and I went, including Springbrook, nearly 1000 metres in elevation above the sea level of the coast, we couldn't escape the heat . . . on the homeward leg we pulled into the shops along the Currumbin/Burleigh connection road for a cool treat . . . see those brown cattle off in the distance in the photo . . . two minutes after this shot was taken, one spontaneously combusted and the others just melted into the grass . . . honest.
