The heat is so great now -- 105 or 106 F every day -- that whenever I open a drawer, hot air pours from it, like the breath of something living.

I went out for some errands, and found a small patch of shade in which to park. The nearest house had a small marble plaque on the gatepost with the name of the house: Surya Kripa ('the sun's benevolence'). Talk about putting the best face on things.

Hmmm, seems you haven't been around recently :) I've actually made several banners, which I'm planning to rotate - but I love blue too much to let it go so quickly.

Well, I come when you write.... :D
