Up early and had coffee with my bride, then she was off to the truck company and then the restaurant.
We are back in the oven here at the Weeb Ranch, today it is 101, tomorrow the same and Saturday 100, I was going to cut some grass but I will let that go unless I do it at 07:00AM.
Rigg’s and Sadie have their spots nailed down under the kitchen ceiling fan. They go out only when they absolutely have to and then it’s right back in.
Nicole says it is nice and cool at school so they must have a good A/C system. the building is only a few years old. I can’t even imagine an air conditioned school , there was no such thing when we were growing up, we were lucky to have heat, as every once and awhile they would run short of coal and it would rationed until they got there supply in, The rooms would get down to 50 degrees and you sat with your coats on.
Went out long enough to bring the mail and the dumpster up from the street. The humidity is 35% but that still brings the heat index to 108degrees. That’s enough for me I will join the dogs under the ceiling fan.
Speaking of coal, how many of you remember the coal trucks that would drive up in front of the house, then the front of the dump body would go up a little till it was at an angle and then the whole thing would raise up some more, then they would put a chute into the door to the coal bin in the house and start hand shoveling a couple tons of coal in.I remember as a boy how that was a lot of entertainment for a boy. Now heating with coal and those fancy coal trucks are a thing of the past. Everyone either has Gas,Oil, or Electric heat today.
Well that’s about it for today, Hope everyone is having a good week. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…
