Doesn't apply here in Australia, right? Nothing I might do that I will regret until February, local time, yes?

Hahaha Cosmo. As soon as I saw you had commented I thought "He's going to roll his eyes over this one." So yes, translate it to 'Local Time' - though here, we have no 'balmy spring' unless you count the 5 or 6 days that it doesn't get above 89 degrees F. And the chill of autumn ??? I laugh ..... no chills until late December - and only because I'm determined to wear my sweaters :)

However, I do remember my children reading Tuck Everlasting in school, and I thought this was a fine bit of writing for 13 year olds to be reading.

'Tis fitting the ferris wheel...the Brisbane Ekka has just begun here...as it does every August. It lasts for 10 days.

What is an "Ekka" I hear you ask...it is the main annual agricultural show and fairground held in Brisbane, Queensland's capital city.

"Ekka" is affectionately short for "Exhibition".

Oh Lee - what fun! We typically have our 'county fairs' in early autumn - September or so. In Houston, it's the RODEO that starts in February. Each to its own season, yes? Ferris wheels? cotton candy too? funnel cakes ??
