First words (from Don):

I've been working outdoors this week and the 'feels like'
(heat index) temperature has been over a hundred degrees
(F, that's around 38 C) every day for the past dozen or
so days. It's a few degrees cooler in the morning but it
heats up fast. I've only been putting in three or four
hours a day. That doesn't sound like much but it's not
bad for a 70 year old fuddy-duddy and a heck of a lot
more than some fellows my age can do.

And now for something cool...  :)

I don't take vacations. I dislike traveling, hate spending money
and have never been comfortable sleeping in a strange bed. That
being said, if I'm gonna go on vacation I'd sure prefer to go
somewhere off the beaten path. These sound cool.
So do these. [usnews dot com]
Do you have a favorite lesser known vacation destination?

Speaking of vacations, maybe I'd be ok with going to one of

I haven't been fishing in well over 20 years but I've been
watching Leo Sheng's youtube channel and suddenly I want to
go fishing. I've been accumulating fishing tackle at garage
sales, flea markets and on eBay for weeks now. First thing
on Monday I'm going to get myself a 'Resident Freshwater'
fishing license ($12 on account of I'm a fuddy-duddy) and
then I'm going fishing. If I don't catch anything I'm
going to blame Leo.

Last words (from Lisa):

I've been trying out a new project. I'm starting a walking
program to help my fussy back, gain strength and endurance
and to try to become a morning person. Summer in Texas
requires an early start to any outdoor activity.

I recruited a few neighborhood ladies and now have my 
'posse'. It's working on all fronts. Lookout, World!

See you next time!
