That's why retirement is great. My husband was a heavy duty mechanic who had to work out in all sorts but now he can stay inside whenever he likes!

Wow! All kinds of good stuff here! I'm so happy! So glad to have all of you! Thanks so very much!
Yeah it's hot here too! But getting cooler as the summer is over now. I'm so ready for the fall! Winter Migration is coming up! All kinds of birds to see!
I feel for your hubby Melinda! Must be tough.
And Patricia with the fires it must be hard on your asthma.
I hope things get cooler as fall approaches.
I love the cartoon Patricia! Very cute! Lol - thanks I needed a smile.
I hope all of you are having a good day!

Patricia, lol at the Eagle cartoon!  Wow, forest fires!  Scary!  My husband is a package-car delivery driver (One of the BIG companies), and his body just can't take the heat anymore.  No air-conditioning in the trucks, but it wouldn't matter anyway, as he is in an industrial park, and is in and out all day.  He comes home and stands in a cold shower with a cold beer.  I feel really bad for him.  He can deliver stuff in sub-zero weather though and it doesn't bother him at all!

Time for a chuckle.....

Booklover, I'm in the middle of the province, also with 4 seasons. It is usually low humidity so it helps with the comfort levels, but not in summer where we get some real scorchers. We've been surrounded by forest fires as well which makes it really uncomfortable when hot & smoky. Tough on asthma! My husband is not tolerating the heat as he used to either & finally invested in a portable air conditioner which isn't perfect, but does help.

The stacked-up birds is cute.
