  7. Send some that rain our way. It is
    98 degrees here in the shade. Heat index of 115 degrees. Too hot to go out much, only when necessary. I am hoping for a break in the weather soon. I can't take much more of this.
    My poor animals are so hot, I may have fried chicken instead of eggs.
    Love your pillow, I got one too.
    Linda is so sweet in sending everybody one.
    Hope you get your yard done, my flowers are starting to die from the heat. I have been watering them every evening but it isn't doing any good.

    It is almost too hot here to go outside. Got up to 98 degrees and the heat index was 117...we are having some record setting days with all this heat.
