Another Day in Fairy Meadow

The big (one block) downtown Fairy Meadow which is bisected right down the middle by the Princess Highway, is lined with stores and little shops, most of which have apartments above. Usually there are only two or three levels to these buildings which really makes the place seem very livable as opposed to living and working among the high rises. In fact, it's so relaxing that I think most people forget they're in a crowded suburban neighbourhood. Apparently this guy forgot as I strolled down the street Sunday morning.

This guy on the 1st floor (2nd floor to us Yanks) decided it would be a great idea to wash the insides of his windows. After all, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness" and to celebrate this proverb, thought it a good idea to wear what God gave Not A Damned Stitch of Clothing! Here he is, standing inside the window on the sill, washing away without a care in the world. I just stopped for a second and stared. No one else on the sidewalk seemed to think this was anything unusual. Maybe they always see this particular guy or its just something people in Fairy Meadow seem to do. If it's the later, I should get out more often. If you noticed, no pictures with this post...thankfully.

Yes you too can experience Australia in the raw should you decide to come down under for a visit. Up next, James Greer and very good friend Dawn!

Just caught up on your blog, Craig. Insightful and funny. Of course, I'm sick and drinking, so who really knows....
