Working outdoors in southwestern Western Australia's reliably wet and windy winter is not without health risks. There was no escaping last week's horizontal rain so I was soaked a couple of times. Oh well, it's better than sitting behind a desk all day. Anyway, as a consequence of the rain I've picked up a good old fashioned head cold (you'd reckon they have a cure by now) which means I'm even more groggy than usual. Throw in a couple of cold and flu tablets and some medicinal whiskey and I could end up posting damn near anything.
