It is hot---with high humidity--- and sun--
This is not typical August weather in Northern Ontario,
The temperature usually begins to feel "crunchy" around now---
I am not complaining--- just noticing----
Yesterday, Beau the big German (as in dog) did not handle the humidity very well--- could not stop panting--He is the German with the bad heart.
This was taken from son #2's dock-- kinda at dusk--
I was awake at 5am and finally , after listening to the clocks chiming, got out of bed at 5-30am--
I did 30 minutes on the Dreadmill AND ABOUT 10 MINUTES OF FREE WEIGHTS---
The 10 pound weights felt like 500 tons--
It is tough trying to get the ol' body back into some sort of shape-
I think it will be a quiet day on our dock to-day-- I hear Son #4 and wife are going back to work and their 2 children will be going to the beach with their other Gramma.
My Mom's expression came into my head this AM--- She shouted, "Stop standing on ceremony" and get up--
Lord love a Duck!-- I am sure it was her voice that I heard--
This was my Mom and Dad when Dad was working way up North surveying for the highway going in up there--just after they were married--
Now, how did she ever learn all these expressions?
