110*, but its a "dry" heat...

Well, its officially started - the ungodly heat of summer that I've dreaded for so long is here to stay. Today we topped out at or near 110 and tomorrow will bring much of the same. I've gotta wonder how the weather folks actually say, with a straight face mind you, "there's a cooling trend starting Wednesday that will bring temps down to 105". No, my dear misinformed news professional, a "cooling trend" and "105*" do not belong in the same thought!! Cooling means, oh, going from 110 down to 85. Wishful thinking on my part! Poor Parker - I dropped him off for tennis lessons today at 8am. By 8:45, the temp had reached 100* already! When I picked him up, he resembled a tomato!! A wet tomato! Good thing we go from tennis to swimming...

Father's Day went well around here - we all went over to mom and dad's for dinner. Mom spoiled the guys and ordered a lobster bake from Legal Sea Foods. The gals and kids had burgers. Dad had a good day and evening. He may be relegated to the wheel chair for all time to come, but he gets around the house better in that chair than he has on two feet for years! He's moving all the time...

Baby J still has no name. He's growing like a weed - last week measuring at about 5 lbs already, so he's probably close to 5.5 now. I feel like the Michellin Man most days and am quite thankful for the pool. The boys are getting super-charged excited over the idea of this kid coming soon. Guess eventually we will have to name him!!

110ยบ should only be a temperature for an oven.

One of the times I visited Houston, the weatherguy said that humidity would be coming "way down" to 70%.

It's awesome that you're so close to the end!!
