♫ Violent Femmes – Blister in the Sun ♫

Even though this is the lake, doesn't that fiery sun make you feel hot? That you are "blistering in the sun?" With a heat dome hovering over the Plains and the Midwest, everyone will be sweltering in triple digit temperatures and extreme humidity this week.

The last time we had a heat wave like this, we were camping in Upper Peninsula, Michigan. It was nice & cool up there on Lake Superior. When we came home, we discovered that all of our poor fish had died! *Many Tears* The house was an oven and smelled awful. We had forgotten to turn the A/C on (it worked back then).

Speaking of A/C, this morning I broke down and called the A/C man. We really don't want to end up like our fish!


Happy "HOT" Soundtrack Monday and Keep Cool Everyone!

    So, you called the AC man, did you? I'm sure he rushed right over. Not. He probably told you he had about 47 people in front of you and he could see you, oh say, around October. And then it's gonna cost about $450 bucks just for him to tell you they don't make parts for that old thing anymore. I think you'd be better off just buying movie tickets everyday, or spending an awful lot of time at the mall. So sorry. It's been a wonderful, mild summer here so far, but I'm sure we're due for some heat pretty soon.

    Love the isolation on your boat. Between the color and the clarity, it looks like its popping out of the picture. Neat.

    Happy Belated Soundtrack Monday :) I'm now trying to catch up with all the shots in the group... I've had a couple of weeks of laziness...
    I had to scan through the comments here to see if I'd already commented... apparently not. But I do recognise the shot :) it's beautiful :)
