Hot, Hot, Hot

White Sands’ Dunes

“It’s gonna be hot and wet! That’s nice if you’re with a lady, but it ain’t no good if you’re in the jungle.” — Adrian Cronauer, Good Morning Vietnam

It has gotten hot here in Sweat Louis. Hotter and earlier in the season than usual. We set a record earlier this week, a new all-time high for one of the weekdays. In addition to that we got a heat index of over a hundred. Plus, the following day’s low was also a new high. But it is supposed to cool off next week, so we will get a temporary reprieve, before summer begins in earnest here. 

Time Passes By

Boy Lincoln

Dan texted us today that he had just learned that the time period between Abraham Lincoln’s 2nd inauguration and Joe Biden’s birth is shorter than the time period between Joe Biden’s birth and Joe Biden’s inauguration. It is amazing what you can learn on the Internet. The other day, Anne and I were walking the path around Tower Grove Park, when another couple came up behind us. They were speaking to each other about their different experiences with drugs. The woman announced that her mother had had LSD when she was twelve. Her mom’s older sister had given it to her, without telling her what it was. It really freaked her mother out. The woman ended her story by saying that that was in the seventies and things were different back then. It was all I could do to not turn around to look at them, with my mouth agape.
