I should have brought it inside for a few days but frankly, we were just trying to pretend we didn't mind the heat and we couldn't focus on anything else.
The cucumbers out back on my driveway look faded and on their way to cucumber-heaven, too.
Such is life in the southwest desert climate.
It doesn't get this hot, for this long, very often. Hopefully, I'll remember in another 20 years when it happens again. Let's see - I'll be 93 then. That should be interesting.
