Living in a country which gets hot at this time of the year has hazards when a Jolly Red Fatman flies around the world at superphotonic speeds.
The sparks from his passage can destroy Christmas Day for so many people.
Including the firefighters.
This was the view from my balcony before lunch-time this Christmas Day. (The snow is courtesy of Matt from WordPress.)
The Maylands Golf Course had been attacked by a stray angry spark from the hoonish driving of the escapee from the North Pole. Much slower aerial performers were dropping river water on the blaze.
I don’t think he was charged with speeding, let alone arson!
