@Frozenoem , glad to hear Joe finally made it to his forever destination and his family and friends were there to encourage and see him on his way.
We survived the hike in and back left at 5 am -66*, arrived at 97*, returned at 87* and gully washer of thunderstorms and rain.
Think Chou/Joe’s kids understand why he wanted to come here for final rest.
Happy Monday, Porch Peeps,
@LaDolceVita ...You and "WVgirl" (for some reason her ID didn't come up when I typed the @ key) are both brave to post your photos. Even if I could find one I'm not that brave. LOL! 😸
@Frozenoem ... I'm taking your "stock up" advice...After the post office I stopped for wine. 👍
Still hot here. Can't believe how long my AC has been on without a break. Going to hate to see the next electric bill. 🙀
You all take care.
Good evening to everyone on the Front Porch on this Sunday July 26th, 2020.
There is a wall of water running of our roof. The heavy rains willing continue into the early morning. Climate change is giving us a full plate this Weekend. Hurricanes to draught to tornado's cutting a bath across the land. I fear we will see an increase in weather events in the years to come.
Afternoon, I seem to have hibernated 97*, when the room starts spinning time to nap.
Happy 🎁 Birthday hope you enjoyed it.
Hope all are preparing to stock up on vittles like Jed Clampett - I am. With dead hitting 1000 per day and a second shutdown looming, bought little things like food.
Think I’m taking my hike tomorrow, shouldn’t be more than 97*, no other alternative.
Quick in and out with backup plan of lodging elsewhere for WA state contingent.
Presently sterilizing my Camelback and bladders for water storage.Joe enjoyed hydration so, he won’t mind sharing my backpack with them.
I’m outta here at crack of dawn.
Happy Sunday, Everyone on the porch!
@wvgirlforever ...Happy Belated Birthday!
It's 90 right now, feeling like 97. I went out to the porch to bring in a couple of water bottles for the water cooler, and the air is thick!
Even in the Acme this AM, although it was cool, you could feel the humidity. The employees were a bit sweaty even in the AC.
The Acme was frustrating this AM as they are enlarging and remodeling. There were so many things I couldn't find. One of the employees grabbed me an aisle map and that certainly helped, but next week I'll need another one since they'll be working and moving stuff all week. 🙀
My Ebay sales slump ended today with a sale, and the same person bid on 2 more for next week. 😸
So off to the post office I'll go tomorrow.
Earlier this past week, when I was on the porch with my morning coffee, I kept smelling bacon. I thought...who has the nerve to cook bacon on a weekday?! LOL
So, since that was in my head, I decided to declare today a "cheat day," and I cooked myself some bacon this morning. So good! But still hard to eat on one side of my mouth.
Still nothing earth shattering going on here...I guess that's good, but then there's nothing even slightly interesting going on either.
I sure hope they don't decide to do another SHUTDOWN! That would just about kill everyone's spirit!
Hoping everyone is enjoying some coolness any way you can get it.
