Okay this isn't about dogs.
We do have a sweet lab mix dog, rusty in color, from across the road, that visits for water, cat food and attention, and uses my north yard as her personal toilet.
It is about the sultry days of high heat and daily morning downpours of rain, that make end of summer days unbearable for the faint of heart, and makes my outdoor cats appear to be stuffed animals laying in the shade.
Needless to say,little of my fitness minutes are spent outside right now.
And whoever invented air conditioning still needs to be praised!
On July 17, 1902, Willis Haviland Carrier designed the first modern air-conditioning system, launching an industry that would fundamentally improve the way we live, work and play.
Ooh. Just in time for that summer of 1902.
Okay. It took years before it was affordable.
But ooh what a great invention.
Not to mention refrigerators and freezers.
Oh. I mentioned them.
