That is the part that gets the coldest. Also, I have a skin graft on the lower part of my right leg. I CAN'T stand anything to touch it. So I never wear socks. Even in the coldest weather or climbing through snow banks. It is a psychological thing, I know. But that is just the way it is.

Too bizarre to be true. A week ago, today, I had a pretty bad case of heat exhaustion. I've had it before, but only when I was either working outside in the heat/humidity, or taking long walks in it. So I just did not recognize it for what it is (when I know what's happening, I know how to head it off) and I got more sick than I needed to be. Two days later it was so cold one morning that our heat came on. Then we had a beautiful week in between, but it is supposed to start being hot again tomorrow. The weather this summer has been just flat-out weird. Mostly, to be honest, for the good.

That game was a joke. I can't help but wonder if the Tigers crept away in the middle of the night to go hide.

They certainly didn't look happy...

Ooo, sounds like you might be going to the game? The Dice-K, Danny Salazar matchup! Enjoy watching Salazar, he sounds like a great pitcher from just listening to games. And if you're going - like my Mom would always tell me when I went to a game without her: Bring home a winner!

A miserably hot 95 yesterday. It's 4 am now, hoping for a cooler day!

Yikes! I just checked and we're expecting similar: 29C with humidex of 38C.

Right now it's 21C (72F) and feels like 24C (75F) and sunny. That's the expected high for today.
