How Hot Is It???

My gal-pal, Suz, sent this and, given the summer most of us are having, I deemed it worth for your consideration. I only give you the best of the best as you are the worthiest of the worthy.

"IT'S SO HOT! ... REALLY? ... HOW HOT IS IT? ..."

...the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.

...the trees are whistling for the dogs.

...the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance water comes from both taps. can make sun tea instantly. learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.

...the temperature drops below 90 F and you feel a little chilly. discover that in July it only takes two fingers to steer your car. discover that you can get sunburned through your car window. actually burn your hand opening the car door. break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 A.M.

...your biggest motorcycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death"? realize that asphalt has a liquid stage.

...the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter.

...the cows are giving evaporated milk. are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.


...that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling

...the Methodists are using wet-wipes

...the Presbyterians are giving rain checks

... and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water!

You’re welcome!

Can I take credit for the picture too?

That's a great photo. It's usually unbearably hot here during August and September. This year it's already been unbearably hot for a few weeks. So what will August and September be like? I don't even want to think about my electric bill.

Hahahahaha! In Brisbane (Australia) in summer it is ... you break in to a sweat the instant you step out from having a cold cold shower

[hoping to experience a "dry" summer sometime :D]
