Hot? This isn't hot. 122 is hot. This is lukewarm by our standards!

Actually... the L.A. basin always gets this nasty hot spike a week or two after it starts to cool down in the desert, but the desert never gets it back up here once it's broken for the year... the benefit of another 1500 feet of altitude! We peaked this week at 102. 97 here today. The spike was a little late coming this year, maybe because it was such a "cold" summer!! (At least during the day -- this year had the highest nighttime temps I've ever seen here. I guess the 20 degrees of daytime heat we didn't get, we got at night instead.)

Default Blue Suede road ?

Today we had a very nice day with morning fog, then the sun pops and warms the temps up. Before it got too hot the breeze came up just enough to keep it nice and cause the pines to start dropping the old needles and cones etc. ~♥~
Here is what we saw today in Sanders County driving from Trout Creek to Thompson Falls on Hwy 200 and coming home on Blue Slide Road. We took one detour to the Birdland Bridge on the cut-off road connecting 200 with Blue Suede road.


The bridge.

On the way back home on Blue Slide Road with the Coeur D' Alene Mountains in the distance.

Just another river shot to reflect on.

Rickers, putz, an alternative to s-c-h-m-u-c-k, is a noun, referring to the part of the male anatomy that keeps getting guys in trouble, not verb.

The word you want may be schtup, which is the Yiddish equivalent of the Anglo-Saxon F-word.

That's right but I'm using it as "American Rickers Slang"

Ah, I see, as in "Rickers didn't want to d**k with that."

Our Rickers displays a fine artist's eye... really nice shots. Love the reflections and the bridge (legos for adults )

Ouch
The temp gauge stopped working after it announced that number....

Today we've had heat (not as much), and cloud cover, so hello humidity...

I'm reminded of the time my former tenant and I were going to a dog show held on Halloween... got there, took off our coats, and discovered we were wearing identical T-shirts that said, "I'M WITH CREEPY"
We're thinking of getting shirts that say "I'm with a dip" and an arrow pointing to the left or right.
We are getting the trailer custom wrapped and have been deciding on colors and design. The first idea is a tie-dye background with neon tube style writing. The other is a nod towards our montana life that my wife misses. We would do a background color of forest greens with trees,glaciers and some critters. On the back we'd do a moose (my wifes favorite critter) licking an ice cream cone and maybe a griz sniffing at a drink cup or something.
Our logo will be that moose btw.

Heheh... first thing I say to visitors is always "Watch for rattlesnakes". Had some guys out cutting firewood who managed to flush up 2 of 'em in about five minutes. They came down with a case of the shakes and left. I got two new trophies. I especially appreciated the thrill of the time I opened the door and found one right on the porch, or the day when I was looking all over for the stupid buzzer that was Right Here Somewhere and found it by STEPPING ON IT!

Oh, this is my late thermometer from the day it hit 122F

Hadn't peaked yet but I can't find my pics from later in the day.

My other thermometer is an idealist and only shows temps between 60 and 80!!
