We live in New Hampshire where it’s supposed to be somewhat cooler. It hasn’t been somewhat cooler. The AC was on and thank goodness, is off now! (just can’t wait for the electric bill?)
Dad’s house has a two-week rental right now, which means we didn’t have to check the house on Saturday. We were also out of Duke’s Mayonnaise and Virginia Gentleman Bourbon. So – we traveled to Virginia, where it was a heck of a lot hotter – and humider (I know, it’s not a word but it sounds more humid).
Stopped at Moffett’s ham store so we could bring back that salty ham that friends here really, really like. (I don’t like it.) Spent some time with Moffett’s Aunt Louisa who’s looking pretty good for a lady in her late 80’s. Took her to the grocery store, Wal-Mart and Best Buy. At times the car thermometer was showing 107 degrees. (Ick)
We had a delicious lunch at Mrs. Rowe’s in Staunton. Moffett was in his glory with a plate of bowls of baked tomatoes, onions & cucumbers, turnip greens and baked apples. (And no, Mike Guyot – I didn’t take a photo.)
