  • That it is. Got my mowing done early this morning. And tomatoes are on downhill curve now. Counter top and tables are covered with those delicious fruits now.

  • I was about to replace my thermometer because it only said 80 degrees but a second one said the same thing! It sure does not feel like 80 but both were in the shade and the garden is in the sun so....maybe?

    If so, the humidity must be doing it. Something is telling me it is HOT!

  • Wow, humidity is only 50%? I better start this day over again. I am out of sync.

  • Rub it in, rub it in. :-)

    It was reasonable after the sun went behind the trees. How did they do it years ago? Whew.

  • Huge families with many kids fanning ice blocks with church fans....I assume!

  • Ice! That is another amazing thing.

    We are told that an "ice house" was located next to our ex-railroad property in Bell Buckle. Apparently it was freighted in there from some distant warehouse up North and then dispensed from the ice house.

    Yikes, what a challenge to get a cool mint julep!

    I understand caves were a source of coolness and when possible a center of social gatherings. We used to chill some things in springs that came from cave water running about 50 degrees.

    Ooooooh, right now that is enough to help me overcome my fear of tight spaces.

  • There was an ice plant where the Bedford cheese building is now or ,hmmm...could have been where that empty lot is...anywho it was on that block, I remember it from when I was a kid. The dock was always wet, and we got ice there for various reasons at times.
