It's HOT!


.....the birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
.....the trees are whistling for the dogs.
.....the best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance. water now comes out of both taps. can make sun tea instantly. learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
.....the temperature drops below 95 F (35 C) and you feel a little chilly. discover that in August it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car. discover that you can get sunburned through your car window. actually burn your hand opening the car door. break into a sweat the instant you step outside at
7:30 a.m.

......your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?" realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
....the potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter.
.....the cows are giving evaporated milk. are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.


ETA: I wish I could say that I was clever enough to write these, but it was on an e-mail that I received!

Hey, Mrs K.
Did you write that? That is so true and funny! :) It is SO hot outisde! I can't wait until the fall!

Becky said...

Hey, sounds like Florida!

Actually, I am not even kidding on a few of them. I always park at the very, very back of the parking lots under the shade. It makes about a 15 degree temperature difference.

And when I take my walks at 6:30 in the morning I do sweat before I get to the end of the street.

But my favorite one was "the trees are whistling for the dogs"

Oh, that was a good one. I hope y'all had fun with those. I can see your kids getting creative.

"What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"

This made me laugh out loud!

We are having hot hot weather here too. I tried to go walking at 8:00Am a couple of days ago and it was already too hot!

Pretty soon the snow will be falling...

Momma Roar said...

That was cute! Did you or one of the kids write that?

We have had a bit of a break in the temps tonight - beautiful evening to sit outside and listen to the wind blow through the trees.

Jodi said...

LOL ~ Very cute ~ I love these. Like Becky (and maybe this is a trend learned from Florida, where I grew up) I do park under any spot of shade no matter how inconvenient! :o)

Gena said...

So funny and so true! We haven't had a day below 100 here in about a week and a half. And, I really don't have truly cold water anymore. It is just sort of lukewarm. I'm so ready for Fall!

Kelley said...

Goodness Tracy, praying that it cools down for you!

My favorite temperature is 56 degrees.

These quips are *funny*! hot pads to pull the worms out... haha.

Jennifer said...

those are so cute!

I can really relate to the 95 degrees seems chilly one. That's the reason I've been delaying mowing the yard this week, thinking... "on Saturday the high is suppose to be 93, so I'll mow on Saturday." Yikes.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Angie said...

I have to agree that it sounds like FLorida! I feel that heat!
That is the cutest string of sayings!
Have a blessed day! I can't wait to see what your finished rug looks like.
I saw one once in a crafty magazine especially made for the bathroom---made of recycled towels!
Thanks for always sharing your neat ideas!

I'm the one covered in a throw after the sun goes down.

Found your whole grain pancake recipe. Sounds yummy! Maybe I'll add some blueberries.
