Hotter than heck, even at 6500 feet!
That must have been quite a trip! Cheers again for all the good you do 🍻

That must have been a miserably hot flight, Steve. Thank you again for all you do for the Angel Flight patients.

I'm making Mexican pickles with some of the zucchini and jalapeņo pepper from the garden, as well as a store-bought red onion. It will go with dinner tonight - shredded chicken tacos, aka pollo tinga.

Those are so colorful, GG. I'm sure you'll share a photo of the finished product when you post tonight's dinner photo, right?

I want to make a berry-cherry crisp later, using up the cherries I bought last week and a pint of blues from the same shopping trip. So far I've washed the cherries...:

Oh, sure Tacos are so difficult to photograph well - unless you're PowerPlantOP, of course.

Silly, I meant a photo of the pickles.

What are you doing?

Dang. I'm beat. Was down at the pool floating around on my floaty thing, and an ant that was floating around without a floaty thing bit me. Hard. I dropped my Kindle in the deep end of the pool, right by the drain. Took me over an hour of diving down, poking and dragging the Kindle with the skimmer net, only to have it sucked back into the drain. When I dove down, I couldn't see it, even though our pool is nice and clear. I probably should have gone home and gotten my mask. My hair clip escaped to the drain, and having long hair didn't help with the rescue.

I finally dragged it into the almost shallow end with the skimmer pole. Our neighbor's sister brought her daughter and niece down, and she rescued it for me, along with my hair clip that was lost in the effort. My eyes are now a lovely shade of red from the chlorine, and I'm not sure the Kindle can be revived, despite having a waterproof case. Thankfully I have another one, this was my pool Kindle.

If there is ever a next time, try to cover the drain with a solid object to break the suction. I hope your Kindle is able to work again for you.

It's my old Kindle, but made for great pool reading. I can't dive down as well as I used to, it's about 10 feet. I thought about turning the suction off in the pumphouse. When I thought I was close, I couldn't see anything! I should have gotten my mask.

I'm a former lifeguard and swim teacher, this was really annoying.
