We'uns done had a week of 97 degrees and even climbed over a hundred one day.
Aunty is heat tolerant, but they is a limit. When I got in me buggy t'other day at 9 o'clock and it were already 87 degrees, I near 'bout wilted righ thar' jes' thinkin what was comin'.
We had a youngun hangin' around that day, an' when Uncle Aloysius tole her ter look in the ice-box fer some juice she jes' stared at him....
"what's an ice box?"
(Uncle also takes his shoes to the "cobbler", the music round here is played on a "Victrola", and he "draws" a bath.)
So ter beat all this hazy heat, I been gazin' over some photos of a much cooler place--ALASKA!
But folks, it ain't all ice in Alaska-
I seen some of the bluest birds on earth!
An' the bluest flowers too!
how is ya'll beatin' all this summer heat?
