AS HOT AS IT HAS BEEN FOR MANY OF US...I FEEL WE NEED A COOLING STATION...IN THE HOPES THAT JUST READING THESE WILL HELP US COOL OFF A BIT. Laughing

Pay for a car wash, and then walk through it.

- Watch for when the nearest government building runs their sprinkler system, and then frolick in the spray in your swimsuit.



- Play hide-n-go-seek in the freezers at the big box stores.

- Stop by your fave ice cream parlor and ask how much ice cream it would take to fill a standard size bathtub. If you can afford that much, buy it and head home to your tub. If not, ask to try some Chocolate Cake Batter Ice Cream. You won’t be disappointed.

- Go to a town council meeting and take a hostage. You’ll get at least one hour of air conditioning, and the jail probably has air too. Which is good, because you’ll be spending a lot of time there.

- Pay your children to fan you with newspapers or pine tree limbs. If you can’t afford that, just order them to do it. You know, ’cause you’re the boss.

- Figure out how the opposite side of the pillow always stays cool, and then apply that principle of physics to your clothes. Remember to patent the procedure.

- Empty out your refrigerator and squeeze yourself inside. Beware the butter tray – it bites.



- Take a tip from the neighborhood stray and find a nice, cool pickup truck on cement blocks. Then, take a nap under it. Be sure to settle under the oil pan so some drippings can get on your back.

- Go see a movie at the dollar theater. Before the movie starts, find a nice quiet spot to lay down. Sleep there until they kick you out or someone drops JuJuBees in your mouth.

- Hop a tramp steamer to Antartica. That is, if they still have tramp steamers.

- Cut off your cell phone, home phone, internet, cable, water, gas, car insurance, and home insurance and put the savings into a money market account. Then, set the thermostat for 61 degrees. With all of the money you tucked away, you should be able to pay the power company for at least 45 good minutes of nice cool temps in your house.

Using SPF 5000 sunblock lotion, write "I Floss" on your forehead. Lay out in the sun for one hour, and then go walk through the mall with a big smile.

Buy a five-gallon bucket of ice cream. Scoop out a big hole in the middle, turn the bucket upside-down, and put it on your head, using the handle as a chin strap. As the ice cream melts, walk around saying, "I'm cool."



Cut a watermelon in half. Plunge your bare feet into each half. Wear the melon slippers the rest of the day.



Stand in a bucket on a really humid day. Collect your sweat. Pour it over a houseplant, and see what happens.

And my grandmother's favorite...place your skivvies or unmentionables in the deep freeze overnight...by morning they will be nice and chilly to keep you cool all under. LOL!!!! Laughing Laughing

HELLO PETUNIA!!

WELCOME TO MY WORLD!! EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT WE HAVE A DRY HEAT. THE KIND THAT DRIES OUT YER SKIN, AND EVEN THE MOISTURE IN YER EYEBALLS!!! I THINK I HAVE TRIED ALL OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS AT LEAST ONCE, SINCE MOVING TO ARIZONA.
ONLY YOU FORGOT ONE AND THAT IS TO PUT AN ICE CUBE UNDER EACH OF YER ARMPITS!! IT MAY CHASE A FEW PEOPLE AWAY AT WAL*MART, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ASK ONE OF THE EMPLOYEES "WHERE'S THE DEODORANT?" BUT BE CAREFUL DRIVING WHILE ICING!!!

STAY COOL, STUBS

I think tomorrow's high will be around 65 F and sunny. A virtual heat wave for us this year. That is possibly 35 F cooler than some of you will see tomorrow and possibly even more elsewhere. Oh well we will see springtime eventually here in the NW.

My mom just told me the temps in Michigan dropped from 99 to 56 overnight. I think this post was singularly responsible. Razz

I was grateful that the air conditioning repair service was able to advance me one week ahead (because I was at home when they called at an unexpected opening)

AAAHHH blessed relief.

I need to get some new cool toys so that I can do this myself next time.
