Spontaneous combustion.....!


Coming down the escalators from ONE40WILLIAM (Aimee's workplace) on a 41C day in the city, not surprisingly I was drawn to the cool blue reflection of Kelly Slater riding the big waves in an advert for Quicksilver surf gear. Thanks be to 'someone' the temperature is dropping to a much cooler 26C today, just in time before we all spontaneously combust!  Wouldn't that make for an interesting headline..'seen yesterday on Murray Street in Perth, Western Australia, one minute she was walking along chatting, the next pouffff! she spontaneously combusted' haha! Excusez-moi , as I type this it's still hot and my brain (?) seems to have turned to mush, normal (?) function will return later in the day, stay tuned. You have no idea how tempting it was to join in the wet fun below, next time for sure. Seriously TGIF, have a good one, take care.....

  7. 41 degrees... We're expecting a cold front this weekend, with probably some snow on the hills around town. I could do with 41 degrees!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. I envision melting more than combustion, the headlines would highlight all of the strange puddles on the sidewalk.

  11. Oh yes, that fountain will be a very tempting thing for me along about August here in the Arizona Desert. When you speak about hot temps, I know exactly what you mean....HOT, HOT, HOT!

  13. I have great empathy for you as we have many "too hot" days here in Florida in the summer. When Lois was running races, many of the sites brought in fire trucks to spray the runners as they came across the finish line.

  14. With those temperatures I am surprised that the fountain is not standing room only! Lovely shots - stay cool!

  18. Haa , being a kid again, and not wondering "may I or may I not, will I be ridiculous?"..No, only jumping into fresh water without any question , and enjoying the fun and the good of it...

  21. Okay...I looked up the celcius to fahrenheit conversion. That's 105F -- hot, hot, hot! I wouldn't have thought less of you if you had skipped through that freshing fountain. (Although with that temperature, how refreshing could it be?!) Awesome reflections, by the way.

  22. The kids look like their having a great time. I can see why you were tempted to join them. Me, I'd be running to the air conditioned shopping center.

  23. I wouldn't mind joining in that wet fun right now!

  24. You can't spontaneously combust Grace. We will miss your daily post. Hot over here too. Enough for me to run through that fountain.

  25. Wow, I'd like to be in the middle of those fountains too!
    God bless you!

  26. This really looks fun in the hot weather. Never been in Perth, so it's great to be able to see what the town looks like.
    Have a great week. I'm just doing my internet "eco travelling" by SkyWatch.
