Some like it hot...
Some like it when the heat is on, too. But, I'm not one of those people. It is all I can do to make sure there are no chicken/cat/dog fatalities here on the "farm" (if one has more than 10 chickens...it counts as a farm, and we have 30 thanks to the monkeys shoving eggs back under the hens during brooding season). Notice, I didn't mention the grass (because it has been dead for a few weeks at this point). I was 13 in 1988 when we had a summer like this here in the Midwest, but I don't remember it. I do remember going to the pool every single day one summer (maybe that's the summer). This summer we can't even say, "It's not the heat, it's the humidity." I wish it was humid. I wish my hair was a little out of control. I wish I wasn't worried about the water table and its implications for our well. But, I am. There's nothing I can do but, continue to pray for rain.
