Adelaide in the 70's

This makes the second story in a total of three so far in which I make a point about the weather. So let me say that I'm not normally so preoccupied with it, but today is an exception as we are going to the tennis at Memorial Drive, and in taking our seats close to the front of the Northern Grandstand, we are exposing ourselves to a sun which on the local news last night was shown to fry an egg within a few seconds. And it's here, in this egg-frying sun, that we will remain for an entire afternoon.
