world travel

I was asked to post some holiday snaps. This is a picture of my visit to Perth, W.A.

As you can see, there was a heatwave at the time, but luckily my hosts had a backyard pool where we could keep cool.

On hot evenings, we would put the table and chairs in the pool, and eat dinner there. Who said Australians aren't civilised?

Adolf! What a wonderful city Perth is! Fabulously cheap beer as well. Oh, it brings it all back. Perfect place to drink Victoria Bitter! Great people to drink it with as well. The cooling breeze is called the Doctor, isn't it? Hope this wind helped you! Hotboy

I love that idea ~ sitting in the pool while eating dinner! That is a "cool" pun intended :)

Is it true that West Australia was the only bit of Oz not colonised by convicts, such as the Irish revolutionaries, and my chums the thieves on the bourgois?(Can you spell that one, Adolf?)Is it the only place where being a whore is illegal, except Kalgoorlie? Wonderful place Australia. The best place! Hope this helps. Hotboy

Dear Robmcj,

Your photographs are very impressive.

I completed the airport run this morning to collect the Sundays and deliver them to participating residents of Kalimbuka.

We actually refer to these newspapers as the 'Smundays' because they arrive a day late.

Well, to cut a long story short, there's an item in the Sunday Times about penguins, in the context of the film 'March of the Penguins' which has apparently taken much of the USA by storm.

Being a UK newspaper, the item's focus is, naturally, on the sexual tendencies of penguins.

It claims that quite a high percentage of penguins are either gay or bi-sexual.

I was just wondering if your experience on the UnHeard of Islands can confirm this?

Excuse me!! The Penguins are normal here on the Unheard of Island! Perfectly normal. If skinny dipping is normal, they're ever more normal. But sometimes they have to squeeze up close due to the inclement weather. Hotboy

LA - puns creep up on me all the time too.

HB - What can we do about it? You're the wordsmith.

MM - on the UnHeard OF Islands, many penguins are quite tolerant of bestiality. Allegedly. To hotboy that counts as normal.

HB - bourgeois or bourgeoisie. I hope that helps.

HB - history isn't my strong point. Except concerning the 3rd Reich. They have whores in Hamburg, if that's any help.
