The heat is on, and it’s just about everywhere. Goodboy Ron “Cubby” Myerow is right in his comment to yesterday’s post – it’s a damned good thing Goodboys Invitational weekend was last weekend and not this weekend, else we’d all have been blubbering piles of sweaty goo by the time Sunday afternoon came around.

Back East in the big cities, when it gets hot like this folks retreat to their apartment building rooftops to get away from the blistering heat of the streets and sidewalks – just like the old Drifters tune, they go up on the roof.

Here in the Valley of the Sun, we’re used to this kind of thing, but the sun itself is so hot no one in their right minds would be up on any kind of roof, for any reason, this time of year unless they absolutely had to.

Of course, that doesn’t apply to my sister-in-law’s rabbits Cookie and Sherman (a.k.a., the “Beatie Boys”), whom I found this morning around their breakfast time hanging out on the roof of their two-floor bunny abode:

Cookie’s the black one, Sherman’s the other. And not even the sights and sounds of their food being served sent them down to their typical eating place on the floor, so they had their breakfast “up on the roof”:

And is there anything more refreshing than an ice-cold beer up on that rooftop? Hell,yeah…even the Red Sox pitchers and catchers agree.

  1. to the basement with me….even with the AC set on 65, the upstairs is not all that cool..ceiling fan, floor fan going. AHHHHH, but the basement is cool, giganto TV, daybed…Oh,that is what the cats are doing.
    I am outside weeding, watering and sweating.

  2. The cats need to be taught how weed and water. Time for them to step up and earn their keep. 🙂

  3. I no longer live in Louisville KY ….I have been transported to the Amazonian jungle…it cannot be more humid or hotter there than here. I can literally watch things grown by the hour. I finally took myself to my favorite spot on the river..you know the one, the one on the water with the tiki bar. Had a great dinner with fun friends and a few drinks at the bar. Did you get my text at lunch???? I was at Havana Rumba.

  4. Oh…and the cats just want the AC up. They are not interested in anything other than eating and sleeping.
