Does everyone have a mister? HA! You know. One of those little sprinklers you attach to a garden hose that puts a fine cool mist in the air?

Blogger Yoga Korunta said...

Diva Jood, it's HOT here, too! But not as hot as George's destination!

Jimbo, what a great idea! This could be done while sitting in porch chairs cooled by an oscillating fan!

C'mon Barbie, NSM, and Jood. We're going to Jimbo's!

Blogger barbie2be said...

oh, we're going to play in the sprinklers at jimbo's house? are there going to be margarita's involved?

Blogger Jimbo said...

Si, Senorita Barbie, Margaritas y cervesa.

Awwwww, I missed the ranting. The heatwave passed over here. I guess the midwest is getting it now.

DivaJood must be ecstatic! She was really suffering. Me? I just popped in my lil' AC unit in my bedroom and was good to go!

Oh and a few margeritas!

Blogger Yoga Korunta said...

Helen, the Great Heat Wave has been here, in Ohio, for the last week. Temps are back down to a comfortable 88!
