Too Damn Hot!

Boy, how I wish that we had some clouds in the sky right now.

Like most of the eastern part of America, we are in the oven for a few days now. Yes, I know it’s July, but when the heat index reads 115, well, I’d like to talk to those who don’t believe in global warming.

You know it’s hot out when even the bay water looks like it could be stock for soup! Yet some folks who have their vacation now are ON the beach. How they can actually stand the heat is beyond me. There are more heat advisories than you can shake a stick at, but just seeing that hot sand?**shaking my head**

Kasia and I walk early in the morning on the shadiest street. Once we take care of business, she’ll turn and look at me as to say,” Air-conditioning…NOW!” I can’t say I blame her.

Here’s hoping for cooler weather and that you are staying cool too!

“Weighting” for Spring?

Well, if you are, or were, here in the Mid-Atlantic states, you’ve missed it. The forecast has highs in the 70’s, so, in my opinion, you’ve missed spring. Perhaps you thought spring was a 50 degree day that happened a week or two ago. Maybe that’s why people of my age bracket can argue global warming. We remember spring. I think kids who grew up in the late 80’s-90’s never really got introduced to spring.

Larger people like me were never fans of summer. You looked lousy in a bathing suit, and you perspired ten times more than the percentage of humidity in the forecast. For me, it’ll be interesting this year, to see if there’s a correlation between losing weight and going through summer with minimal discomfort. After all, you know you really don’t like summer when you dream of an all terry-cloth clothing line, so only you would realize how much you perspire, and folks would just be checking out your terry cloth clothes. I mean, folks who are in shape look good in skimpy shorts and tees, and those of us of the larger persuasion who be limp from sweat.

Try to stay comfortable in the advancing temperatures. After all, October is around the corner….lol.

Charles at 70

I am watching ” Charles at 70.”

The program, on PBS, I caught as a history major who always loved British history and British royalty. I have to admit I was always an admirer of Diana, Princess ofWales. I still find it hard to see Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, on screen as Charles’wife.

Oh well.

The documentary featured the Prince of Wales on his various engagements through the year that has past, as this November past was his 70th birthday…it followed him from islands in the far Pacific, Scotland for representing his principal charity, the Prince of Wales Trust, interviewing at his home regarding his stand on environmental issues and global warming, and finally at Buckingham Palace.

It’s a rarity to see royalty on PBS. The last show I caught was on the Queen’s crowns and jewels she wore at her coronation. After this show on Charles, I assume they’ll have more coming out for us.

I’ll be staying tuned.
