If wishes came true; Tropical Storms Eugene and Emily would park their amorous hineys atop the Texas drought stricken areas for about 72 hours and make serious thunderstorm babies.
However, I know this is just a dream. By 10 a.m. we are forced inside to ride out the day. Though we do check on our critters to ensure they are not baked by the heat wave. Seriously, just walking to the mail box can cause heat stroke. Our new normal temp by 5 p.m. is or on 114; seriously dangerous heat.
I know this is a little late but, Zephyr is now an official Snaggle Toothed-Cubby Bear. Just marking milestones and incredible rites of passage here on the farm.
Don't forget tonight begins the new season of 'Billy the Exterminator.' Billy started out with Mike Rowe on a Dirty Jobs episode and eventually A&E gave them their own show. The boys and I love this show because we learn about animals / critters most folks consider pests. Really, those critters are pests inside homes thus the need for exterminators. The shows that make our skin crawl the worst are cock roach (insect) infestations. YIKES!
So what are ya'll doing to beat the heat? I hate cooking in this weather so; we are having lots of tortilla roll-ups (wraps) and other kinds of no cooking fare.
