We are having an unusual hot spell here in Northern California, so these photos I received are most appropriate.  Objects you’d expect to keep their shape, might not.  Like these --

Cookie bake

Does it count if it's not standing up?

Fan yourself!  I'm beat!

And these animals certainly know how to beat the heat!

Fun --

Democracy means that anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn’t grow up,
can be vice-president.

Football combines two of the worst things in American life.  It is violence punctuated by committee meetings.

Sign in a restaurant window:  "Don't stand there and be hungry; come on in and get fed up".


  1. That second one is a George Will quote that one of my kids' high school teachers had in a poster on the wall. In her French class. Will loves baseball and hates football, so seeing it up there at Back to School night fifteen years ago made me laugh--and remember the line.

  2. It's off topic, but I was shocked/surprised/delighted to wake up to the morning news that the Ryder Cup was going to stay in Europe. What a come back! (No violence or committee meetings, and if football combines the worst of American life, golf shows the best! Such gentlemanly conduct.)
