It's as warm as toast today. Not a good day for doing physical work so I went to work 6am and got it all done half an hour ago. It really was a beautiful time to be out in the countryside. Very quiet, cool enough to do some graft and the wildlife was just a complete joy to behold. I wish I could appreciate it more of the time.

Don't get sun burnt or sun stroke. Drink plenty of water. Admire the ladies with reduced amounts of clothing on :drool:

Took the dog for a walk at 0630 this morning - greyhounds are susceptible to heatstroke.

I go for my walks eary in the morning during heat waves, did not bother yesterday as I was hung over. I was out in it all day on Thursday going to the races for the first time in nineteen months. :grin: Thankfully some shade at the course, but the mile uphill walk from Chepstow town centre was gruelling. Would have missed out on drinking time had we caught the bus. :guiness; The walk back to the pub was easier, with lighter pockets.
I set a course just east of Lyra
And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way
On my ship, the Rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies
Headed for the heart of Cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole
Gains control

RIP Doc

In this hot weather some will say they could murder a few ice cold tinnies. Not the right thing to do ofc. Dehydration is a serious business.

I'm supping a delicious ice-cold Belvoir Farm Ginger Beer, Stu

Over 30 degrees here today. Have been making the most of what shade there is in south facing back garden. Can't complain with foreign holidays off the agenda for the forseeable future.

Slightly cold here at about 17 deg c. I've been lighting the fire. You get used to the heat and humidity.

Half the country here is flooded and the river levels are still rising....

... but that's summer in The Netherlands for you.
