Heat Exhaustion?

Last week temps averaged around 98 degrees (In the Shade) and this past Saturday peaked out at 102 f.  Things are so dry and HOT here in Houston that the entire county banned all fireworks and the sales there of.  Poor fireworks dealers, looks kinda weird driving down the county roads and not one fireworks stand!  Life has succumbed to staying in the ac'd home or car or office.  As pitiful as it may be and just to stifle our cabin fever that wonderfully gifted spouse of mine splurged 30 bucks and brought home our very first pool.

Not much to look at and I can only imagine what four grown-ups look like laying down in 24 inches of water.  Neighbors already think I'm a little strange, so this otta really give something to talk about. Heck, I don't care.  It's hot, all the lakes are at 90 plus water temps and the thought of getting out on the 120 plus degree concrete on two wheels is just not there.  Since Cy blew his starter solenoid and his old metal main fuse I think we'll just sit this hot spell out, continue to let the seafoam soak through those gummed up carbs and pray for cooler weather by, oh lets saaaaaay mid November!  God I hope sooner than that.  Those of you can ride in some sort of sensible climate ride a few for me.  Have a great fourth and God bless those of you who've fought for the freedoms we so often take for granted.
