Nevyn commented that Michael forgot to mention Bush Tucker Man. I could not imagine who or what was Bush Tucker Man, but he sounded like a cross between Crocodile Dundee and MacGyver. That was it. I had to drop everything and go to You Tube.
I love Bush Tucker Man. And his hat. And shorts.
But before we go bush tucking with more of Aussie August…… (Michael, can “bush tucker” be used as a verb? I’m not sure who massacres the language worse--- Aussies or Yanks ---but regardless, I’m sure our British cousins “across the pond” are rolling their eyes). ……here’s a recap of your CHANCE TO WIN--- plus Michael has “sweetened the pot” as we say….

inside. Sorry. My bad.
Here’s the link where you can peruse the items:
So here’s what I do---I put everybody’s name in a hat and draw two out. How do you know I’m doing it honestly? Because I’m going to video it and post it. I will ship the book to you anywhere in the world.
And while there is no requirement to follow my blog or Michael’s in return (though he has a very cool blog and some great insights into the writing life) it would be really, really, cool if you’d do that. Well, if you aren’t already.
I can’t speak for Michael, but as for myself, I’m insecure, and need validation.
Michael’s blog “An Elusive Symmetry”
Michael’s book of poetry- "Ultramundane Shadows"
I think you can read the book of poetry FREE by going to that link. It's some great poetry.
If you’ve missed the previous posts, scroll on down and take a quick look----it’s a good chance to get up to speed on your Oz culture. These posts have been wonderful. Check out Michael’s next post on Sunday (21) , which mentions the best TV show I’ve not been watching. And for commenter Jack Colton, yes, Michael does have a very good upcoming blog on snakes.
And without further delay, for all my fellow Americans who have never heard of him, I introduce BUSH TUCKER MAN!!! (who, for some reason, I think looks a lot like Sam Neill)
And more, so we can all hear that gorgeous accent! He tells us how to find fresh water. And Bush Tucker Man---you are rockin' those shorts.
