Default "Fry-an-Egg" Friday!

Morning Mates, from Pictou County, where at 8:30 am it's already at a humidex of 29C or 84F, which is quite unusual for around here!
Yesterday was much the same, killer humidity, although cloudy most of the day. Last night's rain did nothing to help cool things off....

We met some friends last night in their little town, at a coffeehouse to see an up-and-coming local performer. I think I mentioned her yesterday, Erin Costelo. If you enjoy the music of kd lang and Diana Krall, sort of lyric-ridden, bluesy, jazzy, soul, folk, then look her up on YouTube, she is amazing!
I really enjoyed her very intimate show with about 30 patrons, a nice (air conditioned) way to spend the evening!

The plan today was to go to Halifax for the day, but as we got up late, and it's so darn hot, we may re-think that one...

Beenie, hope you're recovering well, and Henry, wishing you best of luck with your surgery next week!

Hello to all from a warm Ohio. We too have been having high humidity which brings thunderstorms. Forecast is for a low humidity weekend, we'll see.
It has been a very busy time for us which has kept me from spending computer time. I think I have finally caught up on all the goings on of our mates after a couple of weeks not being around the board.
BW, hope you are on the mend. Just take it easy and relax while you can.
Todd, prayers continue for Fran & you.
Henry, will add you to my prayer list for your upcoming surgery

Today I get to pretty much have a me day! YIPEEE. I have already got the housework done so I can spend a little time on the computer. Later I plan on spreading out the 8 bags of mulch my dear son-in-law picked up for me. May also give the grass a mowing to try and stay ahead of it. This weather has made it grow so fast.

Everyone have a great day.

Good Morning CruiseMates!
Thanks everyone for the kind thoughts. I feel so good today. I woke up this morning and most of my pain was gone. late Wednesday and yesterday got a little intense at times, but the pain meds did their job pretty well. Just certain times after being up too long it really hurt.

Just got off the phone with the Doc's office I have a 10:30 appt. Tuesday to get my post op followup and an upgrade to a walking cast.

I have to figure out how to get in and out of the tub today. Pray I don't have to call 911.

Good morning everyone from Onalaska, Wi where it is a pleasent 76 degrees and sunny.

I will leave in a few minutes to go to the Mall Of The Americas. One of the ladies who works here, and her mom have asked me to go. It will be a real treat to get away from here for awhile.

Sunday morning will be our return trip to Texas.

Thinking of all of you.

Good Morning cruisemates! We're apparently back to the cycle of warm temps in the day, and showers and thunderstorms at night. We'll apparently hit the 80s F during the day.

Had a fun day playing golf yesterday with some friends I haven't seen for quite some time. The golf was pretty so-so, but it was great catching up, having dinner afterwards.

Going to repeat the process today, with different friends.

Default "Fry-an-Egg" Friday

Good morning from a cool SoCal. It's overcast and really very pleasant.

Nothing new on this fromt. I guess that's a good thing. Have a nice day, all.

Good afternoon from where it already a hot 83 degrees, in Virginia Beach. I did my usual, cleaning of the house this morning and then went to the drug store to take advantage of the sales on hair care products. In between, I managed to buy a stock that was on sale in today's "down market". Tomorrow we are going out to for a Chinese dinner with friends. Hope that all my fellow cruisemates have a happy weekend!

Good afternoon all. A bit late today.

Well, it hasn't been as stifling today (currently 87 F) but only because only now in the mid afternoon is the overcast beginning to break up. I'm confident the thermometer will rise a few more notches before the day is over.

I was just thinking a day or so ago Rollerdonna, if this tremendous heat wave would assault the Maritimes. Guess we have our answer, huh?

Hope you enjoyed "your day" Sue.

Congratulations Susan! You're a braver person than am I. I used to ice skate but I know if I even contemplated it today, there'd go a hip or ankle and when you're over 63, you don't heal as fast!

You know Manuel, to be honest I'd probably like to experience a snowy day..........tomorrow!

Beenie Weenie, it sounds as if you're, "Haulin the mail!" when it comes to your recovery. Good for you!

Luanne, hope you enjoyed the mall. They say that it is a unique experience. Oh, and I hope you're enjoying those Minnesota temps. I gotta' sneaky suspicion that the realities of summer are gonna' hit you up side the head when you hit that Texas border.

We have a gorgeous golf course Kuki, about a mile from where we live. As I was driving by it late yesterday afternoon it was so hot that I saw two golfers with their bags and wearing kepis, complete with couvrenuques, crawling across a bunker with their tongues hanging out!

Congratulations Henry! Heaven knows, you more than earned that T-Shirt! Wear it proudly.

Enjoy normalcy, Judy. 'Cause you just know it's gonna' end tomorrow.

Balabusta, 83 is hot? Compared to what we've been experiencing, that's almost cold!

Hope all 'o you'uns (including you lurkers out there) have a fantastic weekend.
