I did go shopping at 21h15 (9:15 PM). It was still too warm out, but I had to go before the store closed. It took an hour and I am now recuperated from the shopping. A cold beer helped.

Oh dear, CWS, best wishes for your dad.

It finally got cool enough to go to the pool. I floated around on the floaty thing reading my waterproof cased Kindle, and it was blissful!

You, your Dad, and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Just made a potato salad and some deviled eggs. Tomorrow morning I'll go to the deli for some meats, cheese, and French rolls. My brother called and wants to get together tomorrow - normally I wouldn't go to that trouble for a last minute request, but for my bro it's different. He only lives a couple of blocks away but now that he's retired, he works 24/7 doing his love - restoring old classic cars. I saw him more when he was working at his job full time.

Oh CW, I am so sorry to hear this. Prayers are on the way.

Thx everyone. Still no news. Still hot and humid but not as bad as it has been. Humidex was only 35 today. Yes, I got distracted thinking about the guys' gourmet menu...glad for the distraction.

So many corn cobs, so little corn. Himself grilled eight ear, I packed up seven and tossed the kernels from the eighth one into our salads tonight. We got 2# of kernels from $2 of corn. Since fire-roasted corn goes for $2+ per pound in the stores, I would say it was worth the bit of work to do it ourselves.

I was sitting here going through the kitchen stuff in the Zulily site. There is this little "counter wiper" for $5.00. Huh? It is a metal blade only as wide as your four fingers. I have one of them. It is called a bench scraper. And it is wider and does a better job. I just never though of it as an instrument to scrape the whole counter for other then when pie making. Now I know. There is more than one use for my bench scraper.
