A little water.

Pooled water.

I ran about 123 errands. I returned just in time to avoid the rain drops. Two hours later, everything was soaked. I took dogarito for a late afternoon walk. I looked around. Everything is growing like mad.

Meanwhile.

Reports from around the country tell me that places are just burning up, either literally or they are just way too hot. It looks like the temperature in Los Angeles will break hot weather records by more than a few degrees. I’m fully in sympathy with my friends in these places. In Louisiana we are used to the heat. We have are ways of dealing with it. Good air conditioning. Lots of cold water. Sno-balls. 28 showers a day. And, grown men wandering around in shorts. Like me.

I’d like to be in a cooler place. There are a few places like that. High in the mountains, for instance. The rest of the country? Hot. Everywhere.

The picture. Less than 10 feet from the door. Sometimes you see them. Sometimes they see you. Heh!
