Well, if you ever want to share, PM me.

And if you want to go Hollywood... I would help you write it and I think Carl could help us with all his Hollywood contacts.

In fact, I just received an email from the crazy camel himself saying he'll act as our agent and represent us, for a small fee, of course.

It's definitely bold!!

I don't like to have too much arrogance or over-enthusiasm with my meal either.

I just want a friendly & on top of things server. If I get that, I'm happy to tip very well!

Boy, it is a warm one! I did my errands early this morning. A lot of the places I went to were talking about closing at noon due to the heat as the employees/volunteers were miserable and not much foot traffic. I think it is a good idea! Better safe than sorry when people's health is concerned. I am really worried about Shaggy - he is a long-haired, black and brown dog so he must be very miserable. He is up there in age, too, so it is not a good situation for him. I'm staying home for the next few days to keep tabs on him.

Stay cool, hydrated, and MERRY!!!

Really?????? That is never heard of here in Texas. We NEVER close anything due to heat, even construction workers are out in it. I wish places would close! We get over the triple digits and life goes on as usual.

I guess it's like you all up north laugh when a few snowflakes headlines our news here. They will do all day coverage with "Breaking News" because an inch of snow is on the ground!!! Ha ha! Well, it is breaking news to me.

I do hate the heat and glad people take it serious enough there to close places down. I have known too many people here dropping over from heat exhaustion and strokes because they HAVE to work in it. Not good!

Hope Shaggy will be okay!

Same here, about the snow. In Oklahoma, we'll shut schools down if we have too much snow (i.e., an inch or so), and a lot of businesses shut down. Nothing closes down for the heat, though!

Sorry to all those suffering from this heat. We are having very unusual weather here. It is so nice out that I have the whole house opened up and fans running. We have never been able to do that in July, this is a first! Usually the air conditioner is going 24/7. I am LOVING this weather!!! I want to bottle it up and keep it all summer long!!! I am sure the triple digits will be back to visit soon so enjoying this while I can!

Stay cool my friends!
