It has been insane.. I can't think of how many days the index has been over 100 up here.. Supposedly it will break this upcoming week, but I'm not holding my breath.

My supervisor called me earlier today and notified me I would be working this weekend with a minimum of 8hr/day shifts.. This really blows since most of my work is outside and my moral is already plummeting.

In my previous life as a mailman, our vehicles would get well over 100* with little if any cooling(no a/c, horrible ventilation, the fan blew the hot air off the windshield in your face...)... Hang in there Tibb; keep hydrated and DO apply some good ol' ss!

One good(?) thing; I haven' had to cut the grass in 3 weeks!!!

And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!

real winner there Jon...
I think I read somewhere there is a special sort of justice in jail - I hope they have something very special for someone so heartless.

My dogs stay home all day in the nice air conditioned house rolling on my sofa (where they're not supposed to be) while I'm out earning their food money..

I suddenly feel very used..

My daughter acts like she runs the kitchen ... If she were a person she'd probably put her name on my SLK

Geesh.. Even with my AC on it's 79 in the house.. granted it's a very old house and I've barely touched it. Before this heat wave came in I was two thirds of the way done with the new overhangs (still need painted)..

As it sits right now.. I'm still two thirds of the way done

Yeah..these two are way cheaper than child support. I buy a single 30lb bag of food every other week and we go to the vet once a year..

Lesson learned the hard way; keep an extra bottle of sunscreen in the glovebox. Sure makes life easier. Stay cool and safe out there, friends.
