Hot Llama Action

Well, of course since I opened my yap last week about the relative tolerability of the Dee Cee summer so far, this week promises to be a super king kamayamaya beyotch of a scorcher. Blazer and tie were dumped unceremoniously before I even left the house this morning. Dress shirt probably will follow by tomorrow.

Ah, well. At least the extreme heat had the courtesy to wait until August this year, which is as things should be. Nevertheless, I once again invite you to consider my proposal that the United States adopt a summer capitol somewhere aways up north, far from the swamps of the Chesapeake, where nobody in his right mind should want to be this time of year.

In the meantime, I'll just remind myself that vacation starts in four days and that we hit the road for Maine a week from today:


I'll also sit back and laugh to see what kind of pervs google in here on a search for "hot llama action".

You know it's going to be a hot one when the temperature at 8:30am is 90 degrees F. Gah.

I have officially switched my temperature gauge in the car from Farenheit to Celsius in the hopes that seeing it as 36 degrees will make me feel cool. So far, no luck, but hope springs eternal.

Well, I have to confess that this coming week will be a challenge for me to keep to my faith that not installing a/c in my Jeep Wrangler ragtop was a matter of principle and not a matter of my being a total moron.

Yeah, I'm hopin' Maine will be better. I will be up there week after next for sea trials on a new destroyer out of Bath Iron Works.

Mike - we often fish the lower Kennebec and comment on some of the crazy-assed turns in the channel coming down from Bath. Never a dull moment conning a ship the size of a destroyer there, I should imagine.

Expecially considering today's destroyers are the size of WW II cruisers.

Yeah, not a lot of gentle curves there, but we keep the speed down and the pilots know the water there like no one else. The yardbirds tell me the water temps never get above mega shrinkage for swimming. If you are still there, see you on the river.
