Heat Makes You Do Strange Things

Well.....it's hot. I am sure that is not a newsflash for anyone even remotely close to my fine state of Kentucky. Temps are well above the 100 degree mark and will stay that way past the weekend.  Sir Charles has taken to resting on the loveseat....in extreme comfort as you can see. 



The bees have been hanging out on their front porch in the evenings. 




Me?.....Well, I have been scheming with my camera, as usual.  Here is a fine portrait of me and Secret Agent Man in front of our ancient farmhouse. 




I had my son snap this pic and he pronounced it to be ridiculous.  I think I might have to frame it. 

BTW, I think the tractor contraption from Thoughtless Thursday is a sprayer and, as far as I could tell, it was being used in the adjoining field.  Rusty tractors....a thing of beauty forever.

  8. Hope you're doing okay in the heat. Here in Oregon it's 65.1. :-) The dog picture is a hoot! And I absolutely love the shot of you two.. the S&H green stamp sign brought back memories. I did my share of licking and pasting those into books to get something I wanted when I was young! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  9. I love the photo of you and the Mr. what a sweet couple!

    Lucky you having that S&H green stamp sign. I'm old enough to remember licking stamps and adding to the pages for my mother and grandmother.

    Have a great weekend...try and stay cool. xo

  10. Yes, that's a great take on a famous painting. This one with much, much better looking farm folks. It should definitely be framed and hung somewhere prominently. Love Sir Charles resting pose, my Soldier knows how to sleep too, anywhere, through anything. Sorry about the high temps, I guess it's humid too. I remember N. J. and how awful it could get.

  17. The portrait is a great shot, don't let your son make you believe otherwise. It might be comfortable but I hope Sir Charles' back is ok after that !!

Love rusty old tractors too - so much history. I didn't realize you were in Kentucky. My grandparents are from there. Beautiful state! Love that too!

  21. I have to know -- did you have Lisa and Oliver in mind when you posed for the photo? Or maybe you are to young to remember that one... Lol. :)

  24. Funny puppy photo! Neat picture of you and hubby. Seeing that S&H green stamps sign reminds me of when my Mom used to collect them.

  25. Ha! Your dog photo is a hoot.

    Speaking of hoots, you need to flip the double portrait. Grant Wood put the man on the left.
