Heat sucks...

...but Reed is at the Farmers' Market with heirloom tomatoes, so that makes it better. A little.

Also, Brewery Creek have their melons in a couple of weeks early. If you've never had a Brewery Creek heirloom melon, go get one. Now you'll probably get sticker shock because you are used to sad imitations at the grocery store, tasteless, hard critters for 39 cents a pound. If you like melons -- and you do, you just don't know it yet -- try one from them. Richly flavored, redolent (you can smell their stall from 40 feet) and in a variety that will leave you speechless.

It's hot and I hate hot. But melons and corn and tomatoes are in and this makes things a little better.

A little.

Thanks for the tip on the melons! Likewise, I hate hot, but the summer fruits and veggies being ready already give me some solace.

Congrats on the new ride!

I'm with you on the heat. Here in Texas we have been blessed this summer. While it's been in the mid-90's we haven't seen anywhere near 100 yet. Usually about this time of year you don't dare do any riding except before 8 a.m. or late in the evening.

I have to say my coworkers are tolerant people, but the short commute (~20 min) does keep me from spouting like a fountain.

Also, I really recommend Wet Ones travel packs for a quick wipe down when you arrive. I think everybody else in the office does too...
