My Retirement - Sweating

Drained, but doing OK


Photo: Loop on the sunWinter of snow, spring of rain, now at the end of spring, we have the tropics.

Old jokes about heat: 
It is so hot that your tongue gets sunburned everytime you talk.
It is so hot that people are taking turns sitting in each other's shadow.
You learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.

and from the late, great Johnny Carson -it was so hot I saw a Brinks truck with a screen door on it.

The weather always gives you something to complain about.


  1. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  2. We had our summer in April! It's been cold and grey here today. Enjoy!

  3. Ha, great minds DO think alike! Yeah, the heat has already been brutal this year, and just think! It isn't even SUMMER yet. ARRRRGH! To answer the question you posed on my blog, nope, no Irish in the background. Got lots of Scot blood, plus Swedish, Italian, and German. And married into a 100% Polish family. (Guess that makes our kids Heinz 57ers ...)

  4. It is hot. HOOOOOOTTTTT. My poor plants must be withering outside. I need to get out there and save their lives.
