Such a freak

The sun is freaking hot here now.

Somehow Chuck seems to have missed the memo about shedding. The poor pooch is suffering. We have taken to brushing him madly in an attempt to reduce the fur load, but he is going to have to help us out at some point.

*pant pant pant*

Eldest drew a great word picture one day when discussing what it would be like if dogs shed all at once, and they sort of shuddered, puffed and threw of this explosive cloud of fur!

I would hope that the did it outside.

I wore my bright red straw cowboy hat out today, as I could feel my brain frying as I walked down the street. You know that searing feeling you get on the top of your head that leaves you a little stunned and breathless?

Yeah.

Can I just point out that the local folks here do not normally sport hats at all. Indeed I am not sure you can buy a cowboy hat outside of carnival season, and certainly not a bright red one.

I think folks may be talking about me again.

Sadly, for them, I love that hat.

You, my dear, possess panache and (non-fried) brains.
Let them talk - bet they're envious of that hat!

What?! No picture of the hat?! You must remedy that! I used to love it hot - the hotter the better. Now, not so much, I like the inbetween. Hot enough to go barefoot but not enough to feel stroke when you step outside.

Bragging about your hot weather and your need of a cowboy hat! Some of us live in England, you know!

I wish I could pull off a red cowboy hat. I hate my head in hats. You probably look fabulous and they're all jealous, but since you didn't post a photo HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW????

And some of us live in Wales!! I like the sound of the hat.

Beth, honestly, I am not sure they are, but I love it, and that's enough.

Bodhi, there is a moment when it is altogether tooooo darned hot....mad dogs and English men and all that.

She, they were, umm, stunned....several of them tried it on, and asked me to put it on at intervals...lord what they think of NA now...I have lived in a trailer park in Texas, it must count for something.

kate, exACTly...

Boo, sorry.....

teachermom...I think I do look pretty good in it, and hats suit me....but a photo???

Helen, sorry to you as well, and I don't want to start any sort of sibling/historical battle here....
