Fryin' and Cryin', Tryin' to Keep from Dyin'

It's going to be a scorcher today, and this is the first day of our big summer fundraiser, so I will be working outside all the doo-dah day. As usual, I will make sure the hundred-ounce Camelbak is filled before I begin the day. To compound matters, I'll be working the overnight shift once the event ends, so I've brewed a pot of iced tea which I then bottled and threw into the freezer. I'll have the luxury of sleeping away the heat of the day tomorrow, and I've already made a ton of hummus, tahini pureed with fish (canned mackerel), and tahini with yogurt, so I won't have to cook for days. Even though, unfortunately, it's not too hot to work, it's too hot to cook. Hell, it's just plain too hot:

It's certainly too hot for no a.c., as we have at the place in W.V.

Yet, just a few decades ago, that's how everyone lived.

I made it through- plenty of water and sheer stubbornness carried the day.

Stay cool. It's a scorcher here in Venice.

We had a 100+ day w/o power yesterday. I wanted to weep when the A/C kicked on this morning at 7am

Yep. Saw the specials, but it was as the Special Beat with Ranking Roger at the front. Still good.
