Texas Summers

Okay, folks. It's hot! I mean, it's REALLY HOT! If Satan lived in Texas, he'd have to go to Hell in the summer time just to cool off. We officially hit three-digit temperatures yesterday, and the weather man this morning said we can count on being in the 100's and 110's for the foreseeable future. When it "cools off" after the sun goes down, it's still in the high 80's and low 90's!

This means I am now even more grateful for Druscilla, and that we don't venture out of doors unless we absolutely have too. I sat down in my car yesterday to go home for lunch, and the sunlight coming through the windshield had heated up my seat so much, that I got a butt-burn through my pants! Now, THAT's hot!

Poor Ziggy growls at us every time we try to take him outside for a walk, because the ground is so hot and dry the little pads of his feet get burned - even on the grass. So he walks really wierd pulling his feet up really high as he steps. He reminds me of the famous Austrian military high-stepping horses when he does that!

So, we're all just kind of laying around and being slugs this week. It's too hot to even eat! (But I still haven't lost any more weight. Seems like if I'm not eating and it's really hot out, I should have pounds melting off. But I don't.)

So, for those of you living farther north, be very grateful!

Well, Sweetie, you could go out and lie on the sidewalk and see if the sun melted any of you. Maybe not in your neighborhood, though, people might think you were taking up a new line of work. Love you all!

Actually, the way this neighborhood is, they'd assume I was dead and come see if they could "relieve" me of any gold teeth, jewelry, pretty shoes, etc!

I actually got to see something interesting today when I was walking Ziggy at lunch time. Two police cars had blocked in another car, and they had all the doors, hood, trunk, etc. open. Then they started rummaging around in the trunk around the wheel wells, and started pulling out "bricks" of a white substance! Something tells me it wasn't sugar...

maybe it was magic carpet

I'm sure there are a lot of users out there who think it's "magic", but it doesn't have anything to do with carpet!
