If your lucky what you do today you'll have to live with tomorrow. I guess if your planning to work till you drop dead, your going about it in the right way.

It's not unusual, we have cacti growing wild.. just prickly pears, not Saguaros.. I think our all time record high is 112F, that was set in the 50's

They are up to at least $12 here and $15 if they are good workers. I can't get one in the truck for less.

109 here yesterday. I took the wife out for dinner. Coming home at 8:45 it had cooled down to 100 according to the truck thermometer. Clear down to 97 by the time I parked it at the house.

Our ancestors gave us this. They fought to make it what it is. All we have to do is defend it.

Red worked outside in weather till he was 87. And he dam sure didn't need to . He was better heeled than you and grit put together. Some blood lines out there still produce men. Yours dont have enough man to speak here.

And I bet I can catch bigger fish out my front door than can in the bay tommorow. Good luck though.... ;-)
