Summer arrived last weekend and boy did it! It is hot, humid, and hazy today and I am ready to sign in to the nearest air conditioned center. The overhead fans help, but it is still hot and muggy. As I have said before, I am not a hot weather person. If I wanted to live in a place like Florida, I would move there and visit our friends Andy and Paula and my sister Cindy. I like the heat when it is 20 below out and snowing hard.
Went to the first supper of the season at the North Waterford Congo Church on 5 Kezars Road. They always do a great job. They had gingerbread for dessert.
