It’s been hot here. I know that’s really relative or subjective because the rest of the country would consider our temperatures wonderfully comfortable, but I’m a wimp and I’ve been struggling to cool the house down enough to sleep at night. Our climate is supposed to be moderate enough not to need air conditioning. Generally I would agree with that except when the fog isn’t up to the job of cooling things down in the evening. Like lately.Then there’s been the series of misfortunes that usually hit me in threes… with water problems and batteries going dead and — I’m still waiting for the third hit….
So, I may have posted the above picture before, but it’s a favorite I came across as I was searching for something/anything to post. That’s Sam on the left, drinking from the American River in the Sierras south of Lake Tahoe sometime around 1978. Sam was my very first dog. Nobie, his sister, watches to his right…
Just looking at that river makes me feel a wee bit cooler…. 😉
