It has been a long hot summer here in the mid-Atlantic region, and it is only early July. I deal with the heat, kind of like I deal with the cold, I stay inside with the climate control on. How hot has it been, when I drive the convertible with the top down, I run the air conditioning.
Getting wet is always an idea on a hot day. When I was about 8 my father put an above ground pool in the backyard on the farm, a few years later we had a two acre pond dug in a swampy corner of the big wooded area - and the pool went onto a new home. I have never owned a pool, when we were house shopping in Lexington, the REALTOR pulled up in front of one, I was thrilled, Jay vetoed the idea without getting out of the car. The Condo has pools, I should go float around more often.
I don't recall fountains like the one above when I was a child. My mother would have been horrified that my clothes would get wet, and I would then sit on the seats in the car. Mothers have changed, cars, like hot summers, are temporary things to be enjoyed.
How's the weather around you?
