How do WE beat the heat in SoCal?

The heat rolls in, pretty much like it does each summer, and the TV news programs just about flip their lids! I appreciate the temp forecast, but I could do without the random civilian interviews on predictable reactions to the heat.  Let me guess, the interviewee is…hot? Wow!  What was that, they try to stay inside with the air conditioning on?  Unheard of!  Thank you news crew for that riveting interview.  I thought I was the only one who reacted to heat that way!  What else might the people do on these scorching hot days?  Swim!  That’s my fascinating way of dealing with it. 

Last Saturday, we had a few people (and their kiddos) over to swim, eat, drink and be merry. Mia got her 2nd little experience in the water, skinny dipping. She loved the water.  We went out and bought some water diapers and a bathing suit a few days later for her next swim.

Even the dogs went for a dip. Roxi kept chomping at Rancho’s face each time he tried exiting the pool.  He tried to avoid her by doing a few laps in the water until Roxi left the stairs.
