Starting next week (September 26, 2012) I will be posting 3 times a week--Monday, Wednesday & Friday until further notice!!  Thank you for noticing this notice.

The air conditioning repairman (God bless him!) just left.  I don't fare very well in the heat.  I don't know what the temps have been where you live, but here it's been HOT!!  We were driving down the coast Saturday night & it was 91 degrees in Malibu at 5 pm. I feel like I have just completed basic training for Hell!

Several years ago, Bud & I took a cruise to Mexico.  The ship docked near a beautiful lagoon so the passengers could go ashore & then go swimming in the ocean.  We went to the lunchroom to grab a snack.  We were in our bathing suits & my hair was soaking wet & was plastered to my head.  Next to us was a man with his two small children who were wondering out loud if the water was too cold to swim in.  The father suggested to his kids that they ask me, because it was obvious that I had just been in the ocean.  I HADN'T GONE IN YET!!  I don't know if I was having a hot flash or if it was the weather--or a combination of both.

I think the heat is too much for some of our furry--& feathered--friends, too:

And it's not just live things 
that are affected by the heat:

It'll take me a couple of days to get back to normal--whatever that is.  How about some cartoons while you're waiting?

I hate it when I get all sweaty--it makes my feathers stick together!!----fishducky

PS--I'm thinking of using one of these pictures regularly on my posts.  Which do you think would be more appropriate?
