The flowers around here are starting to wither, Fall is in the air, and now the San Francisco Bay Area is getting what we natives refer to as Indian Summer. Don't know why. Haven't heard any Indian war whoops. However, what is happening is the weather is heating up. Yesterday we in Mountain View had a high of 91, and there were higher temps in surrounding areas. Out in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys the mercury climbed to over 100 degrees F. And the forecast is for the heat to remain for the next several days. My fervent hope is that we don't get any power failures.

Cliff and I can manage here at home. The water cooler on the roof is quite efficient, and if things do get nasty, there is an air conditioner here in the den.

Tomorrow Cliff and I are going to the theater. A local group is staging TREASURE ISLAND. I'll let you know how many "Aarrrgh's" and "Make 'em walk the plank's" we hear.
