Have a Nice Day

The heat has been turned up. It’s hotter than a pistol packin mama. Yesterday at this time my indoor-outdoor thermometer read 104 degrees. Today it reads 106 degrees. That is the temperature on my concrete patio, which has the direct sun shinning on it.

My tomato plants are in pots sitting on the concrete. I have about 10 or 12 baby tomatoes on the first plant. I think I may be having fried green tomatoes if this heat keeps up. I just went out and sprayed the concrete for several minutes with water. It brought the thermometer down one degree. I’m such a genius. I know the plants appreciated it. The shade is moving onto the patio now, so they will get a break from the heat.

I went out to buy groceries and do a couple errands. When I finished my errands it was lunchtime so I went thru the drive-thru window at Taco time. Why do they call it a drive-thru window, nobody drives through it, at least not on purpose. I ordered myself one of those Cat Butt Burrito’s. I really didn’t know they were supposed to be called that until I told Chris what I had for lunch. She said her daughter says they look like a cat’s butt. I guess they sort of do, if you look at the end of it. I’m sure that is something you could live without knowing about, but if I have to think about it every time I eat one in the future, you may as well think about it too. That got me off the track, I was going to tell you that I ordered the thing, and didn’t order a drink because I was coming home to eat it. The girl in the window asked me if I would like a cup of ice water. I thought that was very thoughtful of her to offer me a cup of ice water. That was really nice of her and she gave me a senior discount too. I shall return very soon. She helped me have a nice day that everybody wishes for you to have.
