Nope! It's your turn for a while! But, by the weekend, that heat wave from the east is making its way west, and we're going to be back into the 90s! I enjoyed the coolness while it lasted though, and had an early taste of fall to hold me over until the real deal!

Good idea - this segment is way too long! I'm doing research - not even good background noise.

I would love to go there myself!!! Last time he was in Alaska he ran a 5k. I am not sure if he is doing that again this time or not.
Oh man! How nice for him!! I bet he is looking fwd to that nice break!!! It will be hard to come back!!! I hope he has a safe & fun trip!

Glad to hear it wasn't broke!! Sending quick healing vibes her way!!!

He absolutely hated that, but it cooled him off a bit so if tomorrow is as hot, I will douse him again. Palmer has finished hiding in odd places and attacking me when I walk by and is now sneaking around the house. She is definitely up to something! It is still a bit too warm to sleep. I think I will read for a bit.

MERRY dreams!!!
Your Palmer stories are cracking me up! Glad to hear Shaggy is doing good!!

Thanks so much Meceka! It's a sinus infection, though.
