We're having a heat wave.

I guess the biggest news from here is our sudden burst of HEAT.  The month of June has come roaring in with record high temperatures for this early in summer.

The sad news is that when its this hot, it doesn't cool down at night so we don't get the relief after the sun goes down.

It's a big challenge for our air conditioning but we stay very comfortable indoors.

Folks walk their dogs in the very early morning or just cart them over to the grassy dog runs during these heat waves.  No one dares walk barefoot.  Ouch!

The sky even looks hot at sunset as this hummer comes in for a cool evening drink.

The posts have been installed for nets over by the softball field.

Our palm trees are looking pretty shaggy by summer.  The landscape crew is working diligently to trim each and every one of the 2000+ trees in the park.  

Our pottery fans are staying busy creating masterpieces.  Julie learning the wheel, Jane learning hand building and Betty showing off another project.

We stay nice and cool indoors and take opportunities to celebrate.  It was Diane's birthday so we had yummy cake at the card table.

 Today we decided to go to Olive Garden for their $5.99 all you can eat soup and salad luncheon special.  Any excuse to dine out is acceptable.

Tonight was Pasta Tuesday at Bostons.  Don and I weren't the only "creekers" taking advantage of the event.
