We're having a heat wave...

Oh my gosh. Only in New England could you have 53* one day and 92* the next. Yesterday I saw the thermometer hit 101*. It's not even the middle of June! I hate to see Mother Nature put so much effort into summer so early - she is gonna wear herself OUT by August.

She's gonna wear ME out too ... heat wave + menopausal hot flashes = one crazed woman.

And to add to the fun? One of the cats walked across my chest as I was reading in bed a couple nights ago, and I now have poison ivy on both ta-ta's. I'm red-faced and heat crazed and now I'm itching like mad.

This is no way to start summer.

Oh geez poision ivy...yucky.

Funny about the temps but everyday here in California our low is about 53 and 92-95 for the high...but it's good for the wine grapes!

Actually the 53* was our daytime temp. The nights had been in the low 40's. Until about 3 days ago!

I had to laugh, since you usually have three days of summer in New England. Last year we had over 30 days of high 90-105 degree temps. It was HOT, only thing we didn't have much humidity which was a life saver, otherwise, 105 with high humidity will just about put you under. Ask your Dr. to prescribe some Lidex gel, break the blisters of the poision ivy and use the Lidex, it works well.

Me and Tee will keep our complaints to ourselves for a few days and give you the pleasure or raking Mother Nature over the coals for descending upon you like a red, hot poker......you have until Sunday at 2:13 p.m. then we take that pleasure back.

The poison ivy thing? Sorry, that made me giggle even though I know it bites!
