We have once again arrived at Tuesday – this time I was prepared…heh! We’re entering yet another hot week – we have an Excessive Heat Watch from Wednesday through Saturday evening…yikes! Seriously people – you’d think we moved to the desert. Wednesday and Thursday it’s supposed to break 100 degrees – some are saying 101, others are saying 105. Either way it’s 20 degrees hotter than ‘normal’ for us.

I’m so ready for fall to get here – there’s a reason it’s my favorite season. I prefer colder weather – you can layer if you get too cold, but if you get too hot, there’s only so many clothes you can take off!

Peppermint Patty is assimilating nicely with her brothers – they hang out together without any growling or barking going on:


She’s slowly but surely getting more comfortable and showing more personality each day. She’s even learned to sit for treats, and is very close to sit and shake. Apparently Mini Saint Bernards are very smart and can be taught tricks, so her and Maxwell will be our tricksters (Reddington just doesn’t seem interested in learning anything beyond ‘sit’).

I thought this was very interesting:

I didn’t realize that ‘sliced bread’ hasn’t really been around that long, in the grand scheme of things:

And check this out – guess some of the stories our grandparents and great-grandparents told about when they went to school may not have been as exaggerated as we thought:

This is a perfect map – I can relate:

  1. So many of those cracked me up! I’ve been driving a hearse! Isn’t Betty White an amazing person? I loved to hate her in Mary Tyler Moore! And then loved to love her in the Golden Girls. And she is funny! And sassy! I think that’s why she’s lived so long. It took me a minute, but the Ikea one was genius! Hope your weather cools a little. We’re hot and getting hotter here in Texas!
