Deviled Ham

Gather my friends for I have a tale to tell...

It involves this ham

And this giant water, I mean pond

You may not have noticed, but Saturday was horrible! It was about 38C/102F and if you don't know temperature - that is very hot!
So I was sitting in the backyard wondering - why when it is so hot do people get to swim and ham just has to sit here and watch? Then I remembered the fish is filled with water...I know, because it is quite tasty.
So I jumped into the fish pond and rolled around. Then I had to jump out and roll around all over the ground. I performed these activities a few times before Mom came over yelling in some incomprehendable language.
I'll admit that I was a bit muddy...and forget "how many leaves can you spot on this ham?" It was more a case of "Can you spot the ham amongst the leaves?"
Mom was too angry to take photos...but here is an artistic impression of what I may have looked like.

So I had to go have a shower and a lecture about giving the fishies heart attacks...

sorry guys.

Though I think that's what they get for swimming in my water bowl...
Happy Australia Day!

Wasn't it hot....we nearly melted and it was only 31 up here in the mountains. No wonder you jumped into the fish pond.....38 CRIKEY. I'm sure the fish didn't really mind sharing on such a hot day.

OMG we saw horns on your mom's drawing, Hamish! Hopefully that was just a slip of her artist's brush!
What a perfect spot to hang out on your super hot day!
Happy Australia day!

Love ya lots,

Hamish we think you did the correct thing by immersing yourself in the pond! If it is as hot as 38C you have to keep cool. Shame those fishes put loads of mud in the bottom of it though! hee hee.
