It is just blazing here. Steaming. Percolating. Drying. Stunning...it's just darn hot!
And summer has just really begun. Not a good sign.
The Spanish VBS began today, with good will and lots of singing. But boy, it was hard for the team people and volunteers to keep going. This particular brand of hot just seems to drain all of the energy out of you. By the time I got there with lunch, the team was more than ready to move to the next park. A warm chicken chef salad, fresh fruit and lemonade with a shot of Manzana Lift (a Mexican apple-flavored soft drink) seemed to revive them. Hopefully, it will have been better this afternoon.
If your town is hotter than Hell-- Hell, MI, that is -- you can win free coupons for Kentucky Fried Chicken's new hot wings. Every day through July 4, Hell's temp will be posted at 3 p.m. EST (1 p.m. for us MSTers). If you're one of the first 500 to post between 3-6 EST, you're in!
I tried today about 1:45 p.m. and was out of luck...so don't wait. Try early.
