it's a tad warm down here in Sth OZ
Today's temperature reached 44.7C, that's about 112.5F.
Our news program had a story about sharks and jellyfish on the beaches, and there were plenty of people on the sand, looking rather pink....one woman they spoke too had shoulders and face that looked remarkably like that middle slice of bacon up there.....
I think back to my childhood and the days I spent at the beach, mostly in the water, and I tanned very easily all spring and early summer, so by the time the heat hit in February, I was browned enough (very brown) to not burn, unless I deliberately sunbaked, and I didn't, and was back in school by February anyway. I'm very grateful now for sunscreen which I have been using daily for twenty years now.
I've also been wearing sunhats for years and last year finally got myself some prescription sunglasses, instead of those little clip-on ones I was putting over my regular glasses.
Best purchase ever!
and one final message......

Tomorrow is supposed to only reach 29C, my gosh, it's going to feel almost cold after today.
On the upside, I'll be able to walk outside without frying myself.
And breathe out there without gasping like a fish out of water.
I may even visit the kitty cats, see how they're doing.
