Heat in the morning, a blast from the AC in the afternoon.The heat I do for me, the AC is strictly for Dixie.
My DiL gave me a piece of candy that a friend made. It was like a truffle on clouds. But too rich for me to eat at one time, so I put it in a dish and left it on the counter. Mistake. It just sunk into
a soft blob. Still wonderful, but not with the expected texture. That's how warm it was in the afternoon. Still no rain. Still fires in California. Still smoke here. There is an Island that can be seen from PT, called
Protection Island. No inhabitants, people not allowed, except by invitation and manned by naturalists. I think it may be under the National Parks system. They had a fire that we
could see from here. It's a protected sanctuary for birds, so hopefully, not too much damage was done. My daughter, in Jerusalem ,tells of the fires, from fire balloons that are burning near the Hadassah
Hospital. My daughter in Colorado says that it looks like snow there with the ash blowing in. Remember the good old summer time, with the Good Humor man, playing outside until dark, playing pick up sticks
or jacks. If there were fires or acts of violence, I was too innocent and sheltered to be aware of that. And then I grew up.
