    Had the Corvette out for a ride on Sunday, nice day in the 60s. Looks like snow predicted for this weekend. I just didn’t move far enough south for the winter...

    When I got too hot living in Florida, I just put on a layer of air conditioned house. Up here in Northern NH, if it gets too hot, I have to wait a day for Summer to end.

    :) heat is one thing- the hot broiling sun is different. Do remember- the sun is much higher in the sky here in summer time, than it is in Wisc.

    And my house does not have air conditioning. I have screened doors and fans

    When I was snowbound at my Dad's house in MA, back in 2015, I couldn't get near the yacht club to check on my boat. I consoled myself with thoughts of home back in Hawaii. IMG_1172.jpg IMG_2184.jpg
