I'm Blobbing

 August in AJ, AZ   HOT HOT HOT - 

I'm sure most of you have seen Phoenix on the National News for the fact that we have had 31 days in a row of 110 degrees or above (most of them above). We had a three day break where the highs were under 110 but we're going right back up again. As long as the power grid keeps working, we are doing just fine here in the park. We definitely don't go out much but we do get out for dinner once in awhile.

A few sky pictures. 

A desert plant that is loving the heat.

It has been so long since I last posted that I'm not even sure what to blog about. First an update on my ankle.

I am free from the brace and I do not have to see the surgeon again. I also finished my physical therapy. I still have to be really careful of that ankle for at least another six months. If it gets tired, I put the brace on for a day or so to help it out. 

I am still planning on going to Montana to see my family. But I'm not sure when I'm going to head out. My car is old and this heat is brutal. I'll let you know when I figure it out.

Jim's granddaughter, Katie, got married on July 1. Her Dad, David, is Jim's second oldest son. She is a beautiful bride. Takes after her Mom, Kelly. Sorry David. lol  Under all of David's hair and beard, he looks just like Jim. 

Todd is still really involved with his remote control cars. I'm glad he enjoys them rather than driving race cars. Much easier on a mother's nerves. 

I have a ton of pictures of Elias but I'm only going to share a few. He turned 6 months on August 3. I really need to get up there to meet him.

Hope I'm not infringing on copyright laws but this Peanuts cartoon hits the nail on the head for my summer.

Hope everyone is having a good summer in spite of the weather all across the country.
