Thank you entropy_house and shimere277 for the puppies! They are indeed adorable and have been amusing themselves chewing on the unread mail in the inbox of my neglected email.
Back to reality tomorrow, but in the meantime, have a pretty sunset...

From the Requestathon leftovers, the prompt was: the boys as rival crime lords in prohibition-era Chicago.

Sydney has been enveloped by an incredible dust storm.
It's amazing. Eerie. Disturbing.
I'm just so surprised that people were still out exercising in this; even inside our air-conditioned office the dust is present.
The sad thing is too, that this is precious top soil from west of the Blue Mountains, an area that is still very much in drought. Another blow for the already struggling farmers.
