    Worked, came home, worked. Then took a nice bath and ate watermelon. Temperature home was 96::F, up from the 60's and 70's of the previous 10 days. It was 100::F in Baltimore.

    It's going to be 100 again today, I bought ice cream for the office.

    Hi Scott

    from:579 Tremont Street, Rehoboth, MA to:East Hampton, MA to:Conway, MA to:Westfield, MA to:Taunton, MA to:579 Tremont Street, Rehoboth, MA

    So it is 5 hours and 36 min not 5 hours and 11 mins. :)

    Took our border collie to the dog park, then visited Petsmart, then filled small wading pool for the dog to splash around in. Spent some time in the garden while dog played in pool. :cool: Oh, also talked about how we're looking forward to starting up the PS-50 again.... such newbies we are!

    what did I do the first day of summer? Worked in 110 degree temps in the locomotive shop, swam with the kids after work and pi$$ed and moaned about the heat and humidity......lol. Don't get me wrong, I like summer. But I am a fall/winter guy myself. C'mon October!

    I couldn't agree more ;)

    I love the cold. Love it.

    I love fire. Cant you tell?? !!

    (I worked all day and came home and weedwacked for almost 2 hours!! The banks of my Pond only get done about 4 times a yr. I did it in April, Yesterday, sometime in late July/early August and then before my Sons B-day at the end of September. The only weedwacking I do and I hate it... I spray an edge around Everything....

    Went out and looked at the wood that needed splitting. Came back in and did absolutely nothing worth talking about for the rest of the scorching day. It is year four wood. It can wait and I am old.

    Taught three fire extinguisher classes . . . nothing like turning what was one of the hottest and most humid days of the year into an even hotter experience by creating some training fires.

    Went home and worked for over an hour outside . . . cleaning the pool . . . a "chore" that never seems to be much a chore when it's hot and humid outside.
