Historians are like deaf people who go on answering questions that no one has asked them.
A kayaker checks out the competition down at Hinsby Beach, May 2010.
Theme Thursday delivers yet another tricky one this week for us Antipodeans.
In Australia, CANDY is a stripper. CANDY is a working girl. CANDY is a woman of ill repute.
CANDY is not lollies.
CANDY is not sweets, nor is it sweeties.
CANDY is not toffee, loll-loll or ket.
In Australia, CANDY is most certainly not confectionery.
The man in the kayak may well be eye CANDY (for some), or arm CANDY (for others), but I would advise against eating him (there are laws about that).
I'm glad that we got that sorted...
