George's summer fantasy

George: My foot's falling asleep, Alan. Find yourself another pillow.


George: Besides, it's too darned hot to cuddle.


George: I can't take much more of this heat, mom. Please may I come in the house?

Me: In your dreams.


George: I'm dreaming of slurping on chilled watermelon...
in the air-conditioned house...watching TV...catching up on my favorite blogs...


George: ...I wonder if she'd let me sleep on the bed?



George: She'd probably make me take a shower first and I'd hate that.


George: Maybe being outside isn't so bad afterall.

    The boys are soooo darn CUTE. George's face..what a hoot..you just want to pinch his cheeks. Let's hope things cool off a little. At least we cool off at night. Does it stay HOT all night or do you get some relief in the evening?

  4. Poor boys. Maybe just a good hosing off in the corral would be the answer. I'm tired of the summer heat too. bleh.

  5. Carson, what's the white stuff on the ground in the photos?? Be glad you don't have 80% humidity along with killer temps like we do here. I feel sorry for my horses in this awful heat.

  6. Ok, I'm thinking they need a misting system in their stalls. Not too expensive and very effective.
    Cute series of photos:-)

  8. Estella, it cools off dramatically here - like by 30 degrees - as soon as the sun goes down. George tends to exaggerate for the camera.

    Misting systems are a great idea and I'd put one in except for the fact that burros HATE HATE HATE getting wet. Silly boys.

    The white stuff on the ground is the ground. There are gypsum deposits everywhere out here and when the top soil blows away, underneath is the white gypsum. It's responsible for the lovely flavor and hardness of my water, too.

  12. I was just going to ask about getting the "kids" wet when there ya go, you answered the question. My dogs a refusing to go out the back door (west) because of the retained heat of the concrete patio....they now have to exit through the side (north) door. Too hot for their little paws. It's hot, but as you said last post...it's also June.

  13. And I am sure George would also say, beats the snow from last winter. Lazy days of summer are sweet, even if long summer afternoons help us forget it is ever anything else:)

  14. I like those fringe things they're wearing. I assume it keeps the flies away? (Like a natural forelock would.)

  15. They are so cute! You should try a sprinkler - put it on the the other side of the fence and let it go back and forth. I bet they would like that a few times a day!

  17. Yes, burros hate getting wet. Harry and Gunny have NEVER had a bath except their dust baths. I was thinking the misting system might be high enough to cool the barn without getting them wet. I bet Hank and Wynonna would like it:-)

  18. I love your July lineup! Poor Alan!

    Texas can identify with your heat except you cool down in the evening and have lower humidity! A few nights ago, it was 96 at 10:00 pm. It's 96 at 8:45..... Wish I was in the mountains.... I'm dreaming just like George :)
