Nothing New

Yes.... I live on the sun in Oklahoma - well at least I thought I did.... as you have probably heard.... there are record breaking temps here this year. 

FOLKS WE ARE FRYING HERE!

It’s so hot…
The robins are laying their eggs sunny side up.
All the water buffalo at the zoo have evaporated.
the trees are whistling' for the dogs.
It's so hot, I saw squirrels fanning their nuts.
the birds had to pick up the worms with potholders.
I saw a dog chasing a cat and they were both walkin'
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard boiled eggs.

Yesterday, I got 5 minutes of rain on the way home.  Mother Nature is the biggest tease alive!


The pool is even to warm to swim in.... It feels like luke warm bath water.

It's so hot here too, record temps also. I've tried not to complain though, b/c I'd rather be frying then freezing!

You crack me up! The water buffalo have evaporated!!! I'm still smiling over that one!

117 sure sounds steamy, though...yikes! Our saunas don't even go that high in Wisconsin/Minnesota! :)

Love the new look on your blog! Very fun!
