Barb and Jim as far as I'm concerned it can never be too hot in the summer. They are so short I love every single sweaty moment of it.

Thanks for the best wishes. The kids will be fine. No gruesome rashes thank goodness.
I hate it when it gets 100 and over, the humidity down here is a killer, we live 1 mile from the Tennessee River and that doesn't help things at all. Last year it hit 110 with the humidity about 80%, that is miserable. We are prisoners in our house when it gets too hot or too cold. It looks like we will have a 6-7 month summer this year.

I was going to cut grass or fix the mower today but I had to fix the Air conditioner so if it don't rain tomorrow maybe then. Our neighbor across the street offered to cut it for us but I want to as long as I can. He is a good fellow, I will look out a lot of times and he will be weed eating our ditch out front.

It sure is nice to have neighbors like that.

I wouldn't do it.

Hey! speaking of that, Punksatawnee (?) Phil was wrong this year. We didn't get 6 more weeks of winter.

Kind of a cruel tradition..yanking a sleeping groundhog from his den. Maybe they should pull a badger or a wolverine out and see how he likes that.

I know what's going to happen now -
You'll all be whining about how hot it is!!

You will NEVER hear me whining about how hot it is

In mid august the nights are already getting really cool, rendering the pool to cold to swim in, because it just can't recover in the daytime

Summer is here so it must be time for bbq souvlaki

Tender chunks of chicken or pork, skewered with peppers and onions, serve on rice pilaf or in a pita

cut meat into chunks and let soak for a few hours or more in a mixture of;

3 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 salt
2tsp olive oil
4 garlic gloves minced

Thread meat and veggies onto skewers and cook on bbq

cook long grain rice in chicken broth instead of water
add 1 glove minced garlic and a pinch of basil
cook as normal

Don't forget the salad and tzatziki for dipping

Yum

Thanks for another good recipe!
I friend of mine made that, a long time ago.
Unfortunately, I didn't get the recipe from him; and, we've lost "touch"!
While you're at it -
"Tzatziki" recipe?? - maybe??

Thanks!

Good Morning Ross

The truth is I always buy Tzatziki ready made. You will find it in the yogurt section. In fact, you can probably buy a jar of ready made greek marinade. Up here we have line of products called presidents choice. There is an amazing souvlaki sauce called " Memories of Greece". Sometimes I'll whack a whole pork tenderloin with a rolling pin ( cover with parchment first) and let soak in that sauce. Throw it on the bbq and drive the neighbours crazy !!

The enviromentalists were correct....the mosquitos are already swarming and very hungry

Off to an office meeting...have a good day
