Does anyone know when this heat wave is going to break? I think  saw a Brown buying an air conditioner at Home Depot yesterday……. Needless to say it wasn’t spectacular out there yesterday, and even the bugs hunkered down until night before they hatched. The good news today is CLOUDS! At least that is what is being ‘predicted’ – we’ll see what happens. Scattered showers as well, which could do us a huge favor and cool over the river significantly, especially into the evening. Keep your fingers crossed!

A slightly squinty Bruce Miller holds a nice ‘Bow.
