About 3 Hours

If you wonder how long I can stand to mow in this heat, 3 hours. About a half a gallon of water, 2 Popsicle's and a cold piece of pie later I may have enough energy to stand up in the shower. There was this one time I had to sit on the floor and let he water do the work. That which doesn't kill us can still be a beast.


  1. For me it's cold cereal and bomb pops...and ice water.
    Eaten while sitting in front of the fan...I can be outside a long time when it's hot but it makes me a real grump. (even more than normal)

  2. MUD, I feel your pain. It is as hot as the bad place down here in Louisiana...and I have a bunch of grass to take care of this Summer (it seems to be gaining ground on me every year).

    Thanks for the advice. I think I'll try the "water" thing.

    Heck, it's so hot that I finally gave up today! I'm sitting here in my office, looking out the front window. And I just saw a dog chasing a cat down the street...and they were both walking. The cat finally stopped and laid down. The dog took a sniff, looked around, and walked on off. True story! Pinkie Swear!

    Man, it's hot.
