Expecting to see a few usual suspects soon. I am here in south west Queensland. I know @StephenWordsmith is around flying the Kiwi flag. Hoping to see a few more shortly.

I am here in New Zealand. I am curious to know, am I the only one who always gets a shred of doubt in my mind when people are writing songs about Summer or do others of you in the Southern Hemisphere also have to think twice. I always start questioning my knowledge of seasons during 50/90 and FAWM.

It's nice to hear songs about summer when the 2-week forecast for Wellington is horizontal rain that freezes your bone marrow on impact.

And collaborators from across the globe can appreciate the novelty value in singing lyrics about freezing extremities when they're in the midst of a heatwave (hi, @ductapeguy!)

I lived in Wellington so i know what you mean. Im so used to writing against any prompt i must say i don't hardly notice anymore. I usually try and play around with prompts so if they say autumn or snow i usually just use them in the lyrics but turn the story on its head.

adelaide over here Smile

Yeah well, I don't quite know where I am. Adelaide, yes, but it's a day to day living here with continuing health problems (improving) with the missus. So don't expect any plans or brave projects.

Sorry to hear it, Tim.

Another Adelaide here, though I'll be in Queensland in August. Visiting friends and family for a few weeks. Smile

Almost didn't sign up this year, but had a change of heart. Bring it on! Biggrin

Sorry to hear that @timfatchen, that was my 2018. Glad you made it @cblack

Aaaaaaand yet another Adelaidean reporting in for duty. Nice to see the crew back on board Smile

Sydney, reporting for duty Wink

Well, my band tanked. So I can probably actually do the 50/90 thing this year. Smile

I'm in Melbourne.

I'm Muswellbrook N.S.W.
