Early in the morning, or in the evening, I love to sit out on the patio, under a shade tree, with a cool drink and a good book. I'm not a big fan of A/C, but this oppressive heatwave is even too much for me. I have to go inside and turn on the A/C!

Ice cream should be, and many years ago used to be, served with a glass of water because ice cream makes you thirsty... I wonder why. Nothing better than a fudgie on a hot afternoon... yum!

I get an all-day CDTA bus pass ($4) and just go places. I've a number of complaints about CDTA services, but readily credit them for taking good mechanical care of their buses.
