Kool Kitties and Hot Tea
I know we are all hot. I can tell - all the cats are lying in the breeze of the air conditioning. Including one on the dresser, where it blows across his tummy. He may no longer be the "good" kitty, but the Ernster is now the "smart" kitty.
It has been a regular riot out on the bird feeders, with everyone bringing their families to eat. The poor little woodpeckers have gone to my neighbors to eat, there are too many jays and grackles here. The adult jays have such a soft voice when they are talking to their young, it is amazing, since they really are terrible loudmouths the rest of the time. The red-bellied woodpeckers are still here - no one wants to mess with their big bills.
I find myself practically somnolent in the afternoons - it feels like the heat just sits on my head and all I can think of is iced tea, a hammock and a simple book. Not a time for improving my mind.
