Sounds like summer time.  Never know when a little thundershower will pop
up.  

Good to hear you are doing okay though.  It's still fairly moderate here but
it is warmer than yesterday.  Guess it's supposed to heat back up for a few
days though so that we can get some thunderstorms.  Guess they are thinking
the most likely on Monday, but sounds like a hot weekend coming.  Well
relatively speaking.  Not over 100, but when used to days in upper 70s the
90s will be felt especially if the humidity comes up too.  


Well the Pat is up and roaming around, so should go see what she's up to.
