I think I'm going to move to Oregon . . . seriously . . . It's on the short list for retirement locations.

Move to Vancouver, WA. You don't pay state income tax (Oregon), and you can shop in Portland and not pay sales tax (Washington).

Our heat wave finally broke a few days ago. In the 80's today, low 60's tonight. But it looks like it's going to start creeping back up into the 90's later in the week. We've not used to this kind of heat this early.

LOL, Best of both worlds! When I was in high school my friend's mom (they lived in WA) used to have me come up to shop at Vancouver Mall with them for school clothes so I could show my Oregon ID and not pay sales taxes.

Just got this from my aunt in Ohio.


IT'S SO HOT .....REALLY - HOW HOT IS IT ........?



......the birds have to use potholders to pull the worms out of the ground.

.....the trees are whistling for the
dogs.

.....the best parking place is determined
by shade instead of distance

.....hot water comes from both
taps.

.....you can make sun tea
instantly.

.....you learn that a seat belt buckle
makes a pretty good branding iron.

.....the temperature drops below 90 F and
you feel a little chilly.

.....you discover that in July it only
takes two fingers to steer your car.

.....you discover that you can get
sunburned through your car window.

.....you actually burn your hand opening
the car door.

.....you break into a sweat the instant
you step outside at 7:30 A.M.

.....your biggest motorcycle wreck fear
is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to
death"?

.....you realize that asphalt has a liquid
stage.

.....the potatoes cook underground, so all
you have to do is pull one out and add butter.

.....the cows are giving evaporated
milk.

.....farmers are feeding their chickens
crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.

IT'S SO DRY that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists
are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving rain checks, and the Catholics
are praying for the wine to turn back into
water!

Today's high, a predicted 96 degrees. Low, 64. And we are under threat of dry lightning. With all of the dead trees and the lack of rain, it could be a scary day. :unsure:

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

I found a spot to park in the shade today at the Docs office, then had to use my inhaler to walk that much further to the door :blink:

Yesterday I had an hour to wait between getting nuke material injected and then the scan, I waited in the car so I could recline. Left side leg and forearm sunburn B)

My shoe heels get stuck on the asphalt by my mailbox, really annoying.

Ohioans can also drive with their knees to avoid the steering wheel at all costs, thus leaving two hands free to eat and drink.

:lol:

I kind of glad I haven't been able to drive. I whine like a little girl when I have to touch a hot steering wheel. I've been whining every afternoon when I go out to water my plants. Monday was okay, but yesterday and today I've practically gotten sweaty just looking out the door. I've been dripping by the time I come back in and it seriously takes like 5-10 minutes. This is kinda ridiculous.

There was one evening it was cooled off a bit and was raining, I went out and turned on the grill. My husband was kind of freaked out a little that I'd be out in the rain grilling. I was like it sure beats standing out in the sun at 100+ grilling.
