Default April the first

Sometime in April, the cotton trees blossom, and shed. This year it happened on April Fool's Day, and they blossomed and shed all at once, as you can see by how much is piling up on my porch. Tomorrow, I get to shovel all the cotton up and send it off. Oh, boy!

G'day VT

Wonderful, mate - very good ... and I hope you got lots from the cotton pickers co-operative to fund your next cameras & etc. Here in the great land downunder, we have a native animal that does something for us just like your cotton trees.

It's been mis-named a jumping cat, but it's more aptly named a woollarby, and the country is well described as riding on its back

It goes around scratching and digging for gold, when it finds a few nuggets it puts 'em in its ready-made pouch. It also provides rapid transport taxi services to & from the rail station, and mobs of 'em can be seen lined up ready for you to just hop on and off you go

Regards, Phil
