Dear Reader…

Dear Reader,

Today’s temperatures around here are still hotter than a mouth full of jalapeño peppers–and that is HOT! Oh, what to do, what to do??

How about a few, it is so hot jokes to cool things down:

It is sooo hot, I saw squirrels fanning their nuts…

  • farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs…
  • the cows are now giving evaporated milk…
  • even the sun is looking for some shade…
  • water in public swimming pools is evaporating so fast that children are encouraged to swim in the deep end and keep ignoring the, “no peeing” rule!

This one is way too funny…

“It was so hot…all the corn on the stalks started popping and flying through the air. The cows thought it was snowing, and they froze to death!”

This has nothing to do with temperature but everything to do about my obsession about blogging and um, perhaps yours too?

An obsessed blogger’s mantra…

“Thou art to me a delicious torment.”

Oh, how delicious it is to be tormented by something that fuels your creativity, keeps you up half the night as a lover would with an insatiable appetite.  Give me more and more words, more images or whatever it is that has you passionately pouring your heart out onto your blank, clean page.

It is all because, like Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote,  “Our chief want in life, is somebody who shall make us do what we can.”

Glen Campbell Tribute

Glen Campbell: Always Gentle on My Mind–Photo credit: kfjmiller

Writing is a ‘somebody’ as it can make you do what you can and for me, it is ever Gentle on My Mind. (I know, I mentioned this song in yesterday’s post, but  Gentle on My Mind is such a classic country song with clever lyrics–not usually found in today’s music…I cannot help but mention it again…just saying, dear reader.)

Oh, we have to pray for Glen Campbell because he recently cancelled his love for singing and touring due to his Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis…what a legend…what a performer…

Okay Reader, let us be thankful to the fine folks over at: Hot Temp Jokes for supplying the laughs that cooled things down a bit. 

Now, time to continue on with our ‘hot’ blogging life…carry on dear Readers!!

****

Has blogging become your delicious ‘hot’ torment…yet?

    Pretty much. And I love the jokes, ‘specially that last one! Did I mention it’s been way hot in my apt? And we don’t have AC. So ALL my fans are on high–blowing Hot Air. Yesterday I was actually sick. Today I spilled the bag of ice cubes on the kitchen floor–and said a “swear”! Thanking God for cool showers…

      DId you know that if you take a hot shower, you will feel even COOLER when you step out? Try it! My Mom used to hang a wet sheet in front of the fan. Used to roll up a wet dishtowel and wrap it around the neck…. Keep Cool everyone!

      Sis, one blessing we can be thankful for is, at least God did not cover us from head to toe in fur. Ugh, I hear you on hot air blowing around–maybe makes it worse? Retired Ruth stopped in with a hot weather tip: hot showers actually make you feel cooler than cool ones. Makes sense, as our pores are opened and the heat from our ‘hot’ bodies can escape…lol! As for ‘swearing,’ I live by it…:)

        Yeah, I’ve heard it all my life: the “science” of Hot showers and Hot drinks, to cool you off–blah blah blah. If I wanted to SWEAT, I’d just forget about the shower entirely. Give me ice, ice and more ice in my drinks and COOL showers. See how cranky I get when it’s hot?? (I’ve cut way back on the swearing–trying to be a lady an’ all, in my older age. But sometimes one just flies out…)

        Maybe the Ice Age movie collection can help ease up the heat related cranks, sis…hehe.
        I am laughing on your swearing: ‘one just flies out’…too funny! 🙂

    Sunshine, please send some heat and sun over to Holland. It’s only raining, looks like it’s autumn, and when we have sun for one day, in between the rain, it’s too stuffy. Thank you for the laugh on Tuesday morning 🙂

      Oh, dear Arindam, hope your slaps to your own face is just light taps and not blow outs! Lol! Today I joke about the heat, in a few months I will be lamenting on the icy cold temperatures. What a yo-yo existence, eh?
      Thanks and be good to yourself…:)

    Thanks for the jokes (even though we’re in winter) – it’s always nice to have a good giggle. I know what you mean about the blogging, though. Within days of starting, I began to see every moment in blog format – scary.
