I wonder how Hilda has time to take a vacation between writing LTEs in support of every faux progressive tax and feel good public initiative. I wonder if she took the T?

Celebrate?! Summer can make like a tree and get out of here. I don't like feeling like I'm going to melt as soon as I step outside. Can we fast forward to October, please?

I'm surprised someone hasn't said they drove up to Alliance, Nebraska.

I made 12 pints of cherry jam from the cherries I picked a few days ago. Then I had pasta with fresh-picked green beans, chard, and some pesto I made Sunday. Love that the garden is producing now! Picked the first ripe tomato today and it looks like one zucchini is about ready.

I watched my 5 year old learn the fine art of the cannonball in the swimming pool. I even told her it's not an official cannonball unless you yell the word "cannonball!!" right before you jump in.

I just let it all hang out. In fact when I let it out it felt so good I decided to just leave it out.

It is so hot out, the dog told me he isn't even going to bark at the mailman today. That is pretty hot. It is so hot out, the dog told me he wasn't going to chase the cats today unless we took the car. That is pretty hot.
