Australia's Fires

Here's hoping none of our friends down under are in the path of the wildfires! I just saw that 84 people have died. Stay safe down there and know that us Yanks are thinking about you and praying for you and your families.

I just saw this on the news - I hope our Aussie boarders are not affected by the terrible fires - and are keeping cool during their unusually warm summer.

I'm praying as well. I hope they get them out soon, and with no more loss of life or homes. It's terrible.

Haven't heard from Attie lately. Hope he's ok. Guess he's not to pleased about that toasty warm weather that he seemed to relish ragging us about.

I just read that the death count is up by 20 since about noon my time. It's really sad that this is happening. I hope everyone is okay.

I know that Brooksy and mrsmac have not been on in quite a while, but, along with Attie, I wish them the best and pray that they are out of the way. Attie is in Queensland and mrsmac is in Sydney. I don't know where Brooksy is.
