The Logan Fountain in Philadelphia, a great place to keep cool...



Could it be Karla, Karen & Micki,

All from Texas sending heat north most quickly,

What did we ever do to you, never sent you winter,

I hope if you did; while walking barefoot you get a splinter…


Or could it be that guy J. Allen & his lady, Jan,

Sending their heat our way, trying to make me sweat off weight,

That must be their idea for me, yes their plan,

Never did I send them any cold, as I didn’t think it right…


I can’t think of anyone else, seems most live to the north,

Some of course live to the west, but they are a bit there cooler,

Whoever did so should roast in the fires of center city Philly,

Wearing the hottest clothes there are and nothing frilly…

If you can't hang with the big dogs, then get off the porch...

Damn It, Jan said that already. So get off that porch, ride that bike of yours, and sweat, sweat, sweat, like the rest of us are doing right now!!! (And get yourself a little plastic kiddy pool to cool off in afterwards, like me and me dogs are doin.)

Sorry Ed, but I had to cool this place off down here. Heat indexes of 106, whewwww!

I have a confession- I was a bit of an idiot today- went on a difficult hike through Northern NJ today and didn't bring water this time.
When we got back to the car we drove to a gas station and bought 2 bottles of 20 oz vitamin water each- slowly put it all away.
My brother weighed 5 pounds less after the hike- even with that water.
We really could sweat it off today.
Tomorrow I'll be back at work in frigged air conditioning. I'm ready.

Hey- I did go jump in a lake after the hike also.

Not me, Ed ... but thank you for the cooler temps. Supposed to be around 90 all week. :)

(((HUGS))) and love, and continued prayer, Karla.
