I don't have much in the way of an update today, friends. I mostly just wanted to remark that, in contrast to the last few weeks, I actually did not wake up this morning drenched in my own sweat. I've been telling myself that on the next non-sweaty morning I encountered, I was going to take the opportunity to give myself a shave and a haircut (two bits), which is, you know, not something easy to do when I'm sweating. Which, during the summer, is all the time, so you can imagine that I get pretty raggedy-looking during this season. Anyway, so I'm freshly shorn and washed today, and the forecast looks like the seventies today, instead of the usual nineties with a triple-digit heat index that we've been getting around these parts recently. This is about as close to happy as I get during this time of the year, so I just wanted to post and mark the occasion. Hurray for mild summer days!
