" Man it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot." - Eugene in 'Biloxi Blues'

It's going to be another hot week here.  

Anything that can hold enough water + a duck or goose is used to keep them cool.  Here we have Molly's babies in a Tupperware cake carrier and a heated dog bowl.  Don't worry, it's not like cake ever makes it out of the pan, even.  12 hours and it's all gone.  There's never a need for cake carrier.

I needed to keep the big pool out of commission until these little blighters can get out of it safely, but I still needed to keep everyone cool. So I am using litter pans, dog bowls and even the plastic drawers out of one of those cheap plastic dressers as mini pools. 

Eh, Dave's gotta clean that one out anyways.  It was the back end of the duck pen when they were inside in the laundry room.  Now they are big enough to be outside. 

I finally had to suck it up and clean up and organize my end of the couch.  My debit card has been missing for almost a month now.  No one has used it, and Alex does not have it, so it's in this house.............somewhere. At the bequest of my hubby, I went through all my yarns, fibers, spinning equipment, knitting equipment and Finished items on my end of the couch. Nope..not there.  Ah well. 

There's Sissy and a good shot of her bad eye. We got her neck all healed up and it got cooler here last week, and Sissy went back to being mostly like herself.  I forgot from last year that she really really hates hot weather

She's not the only one. Hey, I live in Wisconsin! I can tolerate a lot of cold but not much heat.  There's always warm wooly stuff to put on, but I'm running out of stuff to take off and still have friends!
