The Things You See in a Heatwave

Back in June, JJ (@JolietJake) wrote a post entitled I Bought A Naked Blonde on Ebay. You can read it here: (http://www.mylot.com/post/2947301/i-bought-a-naked-blonde-on-ebay). Replying to my comment, JJ mentioned that he still keeps his eyes peeled when on the highway, I guess in the hopes he'll come across a naked blonde. This reminded me of a very hot day when myself and three other ladies were returning home from a meeting. We drove past an old dairy farm. A rainwater tank was standing at the end of a building and water was being pumped from an outlet at the top of the tank. Standing under the stream of water was a naked man just washing himself and enjoying the cool water. He had his back to the road but we gave him a toot anyway. Every time we travel that road which we do often I watch hopefully for the naked man but he has never appeared since. Maybe it was a hallucination caused by the hot weather but I live in hope of one day seeing him again. The photo is a bare tree trunk. I don't have any photos of naked men.

Wait until the weather gets very hot then check if he is there again, cooling himself off.

I've checked every summer for several years! I don't know where he can be.

@JudyEv Perhaps some other lady saw him and took him away.

@Kandae11 Or maybe his wife had something to say about his public bathing. :)

That is a funky looking tree trunk with those "knobs."

Words from Pratchett floated before my eyes...
From Discworld & Terry Pratchett Wiki Jump to: navigation, search A Wizard's Staff Has A Knob On The End is a famous drinking song, first mentioned in Wyrd Sisters. Due to the song being built around double entendres, Nanny Ogg has taken a shine to it, and

@judyev Mercifully your photo collection is modest enough to exclude such things. The second or third most recent entry on my catastrophic blog has a photo from pixabay you may wish to use. If you look closely the gentleman has a map of ND tattooed on his left cheek.

I guess it was hot and the opportunity was there. In his defence, it isn't a really well-travelled road.

The sayings keep popping up. Where does 'keeping one's eyes peeled' come from? :) And glad you had a laugh.

Maybe he's hiding behind the tree. But it's the tree trunk I find interesting. The nodes bulging out of the trunk look like butts sticking out. Of course it might only be my mind playing tricks on me.

I suppose I did choose quite a good photo to illustrate my post. And you're right. The bulges do look a bit like butts.

He was near a farmhouse. He might have had to stay there for ages waiting for a car to go past.

In outback Australia you could see anything! Coober Pedy has some 'characters' and the Ghan goes through there.
