|I took this photo a few minutes ago - see how I'm "enjoying" this heat? Oh man.|
Oh my God. OMG! Is it ever hot here in good old Slower Lower Delaware. This is Miami weather.
Heat index 105 with maximum humidity. I feel like I'm walking in the bottom of a warm pool with the oven door open. What is going on here?
As regular readers of this superior blog know, I like to include current photos with my blog postings. Not for me the generic photos that are the realm of the lazy and still in the closet bloggers. So it was some challenge this morning to venture out our garage door to look for a suitable subject to convey the heat and humidity of this day at Casa Tipton-Kelly. NO ONE IS OUTSIDE! Even the birds are keeping a low profile. I trudged (and "trudged" is the appropriate description of how I walked to the other end of my back yard) to see if there was any insect activity in my perennial border. Ah ha! I captured an engineer bee working on my recently bloomed oregano plants. Oh how the insects love my herb plants. Bill doesn't like them because they don't display big blooms but the insects thrive on them and that's why I plant herbs (lavender, dill, oregano, sage, thyme) in my perennial border.
So back to my Daily Photo. I looked around and saw no other suitable subject so I go back to.....ME! Yep, here is a photo of me a few minutes ago wilting under this heat and humidity. And, if I do say so myself, I don't look too bad for a 70 year old geezer on his way out do I? It's the lighting folks. A little trick I learned from Joan Crawford.
So here we go folks. I worked last night at the hotel. Sold a lot of rooms. I am working again tonight. Then I'm off until next Wednesday. This working two nights a week suits me very well. Gets me out of the house, gives Bill a little breathing room, reinforces my self-esteem that I still matter in this world and I get to meet a lot of new cool folks. You would be surprised at the variety of folks who check in our little boutique hotel here in Lewes, Delaware...the First Town in the First State. Yep, no one else can say that folks and believe me, I saw it a LOT when checking in guests for the first time at our comfy, cozy hotel in downtown Lewes.
I have a little headache now just from that short sojourn outside to take a few photos. I can't take this heat folks. I can't breath. Now I see why they always warn the old folks to stay inside during heat waves like we're having now.
That's about it for now. I'm on this computer this morning staying cool until lunch time, then a nappy nap before I go to work this afternoon. And as someone from my past often says when he ends his posting: "and so it goes". Or was that Walter Cronkite?
