June 18

When it is grey outside, and I see the palm trees swaying, I am always surprised when I open the front door and I get slapped in the face by high humidity and heat. It seems like it should be cold. I don't know if my brain will ever get used to forgetting about what cold weather looks like. It looks grey and windy. My body did adjust to being in a tropical environment, but my brain still is holding on to it's old ways. I have become a wimp in the winter , where I wear a jacket when the temperature drops to 70 and a wimp in summer by keeping the AC cranked up, 24 hours, round the clock. I understand that the whole country is having high heat indexes. Now , the good thing about living in Florida is that everything is air conditioned. Not always an option in the mid West. Every now and then, I say a few kind words to my ancient air conditioning system,change the filters and put bleach in a special place that a handy man told me to. I want my AC to really like living in this condo. Nice AC, nice AC.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
