Some like it hot, I don't

OK, I'm ready for this whole summer thing to be over already. I am so tired of this near 100 degree heat. It is so horrible to go out for a run at 6:00 am, and to already feel like you are in a sauna. It makes getting through the rest of the day that much more miserable. I have now started to take showers at the coldest setting possible. Yes, I actually have been enjoying ice cold showers this summer - I find them to be quite refreshing of late.

This past Saturday, Bill and I went to a drive-in for classic cars at a place called Grill 57. We had not been to one in about a year, so it seemed like it would be a fun thing to do. Well, it would have been fun if the temperature was less than 90 degrees. Our Camaro does not have air conditioning and the grill is about a 40 minute drive from our place. When we got there, I was already too hot to walk around and admire the great cars. I was so hot that I had to seek shelter in the only place nearby - Wal-Mart. Yes, I was in a Wal-Mart. I had forgotten hope depressing Wal-Mart is. At least it was cool. After cooling, I was able to go back and admire the great cars, and it did turn out to be a fun trip. Bill and I both know now that we need to take 2 cars to these things. Our 67 Camaro and one with air.

Will you draw straws for who gets to drive the one without air? lol!

Hubby and I went to Winterplace a couple of winters ago and needed to get something so we went in search of a store. We came across a Wal-Mart after a fairly long drive since that ski resort is in the middle of nowhere. It was close to 11 at night and the place was packed. Obviously it's the happening place to go up there.
