I'm buying a small plastic (not blow up) pool today, next time I'll plunge myself into it before becoming so miserable with the heat. I'm sorry for complaining about something so many people can just 'take'. How do they do it? I dreamed of snow yesterday. When snow covers the ground I dream of spring.

I'm not particularly an unhappy person, I was just way past my limit for heat yesterday.
It can get dangerous when it is so hot. Specially for the elderly. Take care and drink, drink, drink plenty of cold water. Don't get dehydrated.

got it.....
I'm not elderly yet, I'm working my way there---I've never been able to handle the heat, not in my childhood, teenage years, ever...I wonder if I was stolen from an eskimo tribe, definitely not from an african tribe.

No, not mine, but he's got the right idea!

From FB, to remind folks to keep their pets cool.

Trying to figure out a good vacation this summer with the family. The daughter & dh really want to go to florida & do disney. I have osteoarthritiis in my knees. The water exercises have been helping some. Big mistake, last night I tried aqua zumba. My right knee has been killing me all day. I am wondering how I would be able to walk the miles & miles through disney.

I've started taking my shower in the afternoon during the hottest part of the day 3-4pm and not drying off all the way, then I sit in front of a fan.

I think I remember that Disney has scooters to rent. Give them a call and find out. I know when I went to Dollywood, they had them and I rented one. Saved the day for me. They have hills. Steep hills.

They have wheelchairs at Disney you can rent. I went to Disney a couple of weeks ago. At least the one in California rented them. Check online.
