Relaxing.......haven't been home long from working at our car club's annual car show. We worked the food (who woulda thunk?). We grilled 400 cheeseburgers, smokies and hot dogs. We also grilled onions and had all the trimmings ready. We are pooped! But it was a beautiful day weather wise and we had fun!

Do you ever watch Braaimasters? (And that is not a cheeky question).

No, it's not on our "normal" TV. Maybe I can find it to stream. It sounds like something I'd like. There used to be an Australian grilling (BBQ, Braii) program on and it was pretty good.

I am, of course, LOVING the heat wave!
I can totally understand why you love the heat, it gets so cold over ther, nice for you to have some warmth and sunshine

That is very sad indeed

SimonBaker, I am so sorry to hear such sad news. Having lived in Texas, tie downs don't always work they way they were intended to.

Today is the start of our third heat wave this month. Temps will be in the 90's for the next six days. The good news is that I am located only a block from the ocean and we have an easterly wind coming in from the Atlantic. So this area along the coast will only go to the high 80's. I still am not going out.
