OMG.. it’s hot..sticky, stinking hot..  ,my car thermometer said 91 when I came out of work. It’s cooler here out in the sticks.. but still too hot to move. I have said in the blog in years past that I think my IQ drops for every degree past 65 F. that would put me way in negative territory  about now..when the mercury.. or now.. more likely thermocouple creeps up into the 70’s I get in touch with my inner iguana.. I flatten myself on a rock .. limit my movement and drop into low gear thoguht -wise//.

I take off all the clothes that modesty will allow.. I go barefoot at work.  I start browsing sites for real estate north of the arctic circle.. .

You might ask.. How can a boy who was raised in the sauna that is Houston TX wilt in a 75 degree day ? I wish I could say.. all i know is that my blood has thickened to a sludgy, salty soup this afternoon .. I’m grumpy, i’m sticky… and thinking longingly  about shoveling snow…

keep cool

nite folks, nite sam



I walked out of work today at 6PM and almost melted.. the car thermometer said 89.. 89 !.. That would normally be one of our hottest summer days.. and it’s still only June 1. I am such a wimp when it comes to heat. I’m not comfortable when it’s over 70..   At 80 I wilt  at 90 I’m incapacitated.. how in the world did I ever live in Houston ? !

The car air conditioning has been out for several years.. it’s not something we normally need.. I got home.. the house was in the 80’s inside .. no escape..  Outside things were a little better because there was a breeze.. albeit a hot breeze..

We took advantage of the nice night to mess around with this hige ball that Max gave Gabe.. it’s inflatable and you get inside it.. We tossed it on the tramp and took turns getting inside.. A great way to forget your troubles.

I looked up and saw into Sam’s room.. I could see the spiral he drew on his ceiling right before he died.. In some cultures a spiral is a door to another world.


ok.. time for bed..

Now it’s down to 70 inside and outside.. and it’s only going to get up into the 50’s tomorrow.. now that’s my kind of weather-

nite all, nite sam
