Kind of like car makers have been doing for decades.

88F, and partly cloudy. Took the floaty thingy and Kindle to the pool. Three different families brought kids, thankfully they were spaced apart and not in the water all at once. One family would leave, and another would replace it. Not sure why all the kids needed to congregate around me and the floaty thingy, given that there was a whole pool.

Sounds nice. A pond would be fun. It's warm and windy here. I was just thinking that it would be nice to get a bird bath. May have to do that some time.

High of 86F today, sunny & hot. Around 6 pm it's become very overcast & humid. Looks like something is trying to move in out there.

Himself and our daughter dug a small water lily pond in our last home. As they dug the dirt out they piled it up so that I could use that as a base for the waterfall. Looked nice plus our darling daughter was the one who would clean it out each year!

I actually got to see sun today! Then I blinked and it was gone. Right now it's only 56 and my nose is cold! Rain on and off till the weekend. I'm growing gills.

It is your magnetic personality. It just draws folks and all those buggy things to you.

It is 66F. Windy as heck and a heavy cloud covering. The sun is doing its dangest to shine, but the clouds seem to be winning.
