Keepin 'cool

It has been so hot in South Australia for over a week...40+ degrees Celsius (104 degree Fahrenheit) everyday. Very dry also.

A guy at work lives at Maude. His wife sent him these photos of a little Koala which just walked into the back porch looking for a bit of heat relief. She filled up a bucket and this is what happened! (Photos are dated 30 January, 2009)

  1. Wow!

    I have a post somewhere in my archives about the stuffed tiger my father brought me from a tour of the Steiff factory in Germany when I was little. My little sister got an animal, too: a gray koala. I've always been interested in tigers and koalas and it's all his fault.

    Those pictures are adorable!

  2. I love Fig Newtons. HAHAHAHA! Cutest koala but I understand they can be gremlin-like.
