It's too hot to go outside

And Roscoe agrees. He's napping on the vent but the air from the swamp cooler isn't all that cool. It's 105f with 6% humidity and the weather peeps say the real feel is 103f. Ha, hot is hot, right? Roscoe woke me up about 5am wanting to go out, I still keep him crated overnight til he's old enough for me to trust him. I found this old tune from 1961 and figured you might enjoy listening to it, the lead singer even does some fancy foot work.

I heard that it's supposed to get into the 110s and above pretty soon, I remember one year when we got as high as 116f, not as bad as what AZ gets but not cool either. So no rain in sight for you yet? I'll step up those rain dances. Roscoe goes out long enough to pee and wants right back in when he's done, he's a smart cookie. No tub time, the water is too warm for him. It's very warm in here too but not as bad as outdoors, swamp coolers don't do much to cool down the interior of a mobile home. Are those fires under control out there?

@rebelann It's gotten that hot here too. But usually it doesn't happen til later . . . this year it's happening in June already. There hasn't been much June gloom this month - I am bummed - because that at least helps keep it pleasant for half the day anyway. I'm scared for what late summer will bring us. Nope - no rain in sight . Wow, Roscoe's got the whole potty thing down! Or darn, no swimming right now. Well for us either . . . we are not into going to public pools or anyone's house to use their pool . My parents still have a swamp cooler thingie in their house . . . keeps that one room cool but not the rest of the house. I guess there aren't any major fires at the moment. Hope there won't be . . . but we know how that goes .

Yes, all too well. I'm still learning Roscoes signals and so far I'm not doing as well as I hoped, I just found a pile of poop he left me by the front door, at least he tried to go outside but I'm not reading him as well as I would like, I guess that'll take time.
