109 is quite enough

Car thermometers, given time to equilibrate after sitting in the sun, are pretty accurate. When yesterday’s high hit 109 late in the afternoon, my friends and I just looked at each other and said, “Let’s find a cooler place to hang out than this desert.” I mean, it is a matter of survival. We played Scrabble in my apartment, where the swamp cooler was able to keep it below 80 and it felt incredibly refreshing. We drank about a gallon of water and Gatorade and I made the word HOLLY for 42 points, once I was able to think clearly again.

  1. HI Ranger Kathryn! It’s Jim and Chris at last! We finally got into your blog. It was in this way—we spelled it out in a message to Amanda, asking her if SHE could try it. The spelling out turned blue, like a link, so I tried it, and VOILA! Here we are! We are still in process of reading o catch up on all your writings. You are a very good writer and photographer—nice website you got here!
    Love, J
