Hi, Vision. How was dinner? Crabs sound good! I hope you had a smooth week. No news here, just hot weather.
hey, talk to you soon I’m listening in the car.
How hot is hot?
Do you remember “Leinengen Vs. The Ants”? I think Ed's played it before. Kinda freaky.
We’ve heard Leinengen Vs. The Ants a few times now. Bill Conrad is a bad-ass in it.
Our heat is a humid heat, so when it’s 90 to 95 with anywhere from an average of 60 to 90 percent humidity, it’s a real booger to work out in it.
Back where I come from in Texas, we’re used to 100 to 110 degrees, but the humidity is usually very low. Makes a difference, but it’s still hot.
What a line!
We don't stay cool. We just drink lots of water and tough it out till the evening when we can take a shower and have a cold beer. :-)
JD: Oh shut up.
Yeah, that was great Johnny. I think she was Virginia Gregg, too.
I love Bing. What a silky smooth voice.
Yeah, from animals other than cows, too...
Seems the price of tomatoes is up.
I'm crashing Gina, gonna listen by the radio and get ready to take on the ants.
Have a a good, calm week.
You, too, Vision. See you next time, Lord willing.
