Goddammit, it’s too hot!
I never, ever thought I would utter those words, but by Jove, it is too damn hot for me to sit out in the sunshine! And this is all I’ve been craving! 85 whopping degrees today – lush!
It felt tropical last night. Such a wonderful feeling, to have that warmth on your skin. Now this is what I like, America-land! It almost feels like I’m abroad….oh, hang on I am! What I mean is that it almost feels like I am on holiday, but sadly there is no maid and no pool and no swim-up pool bar…. 😉
I’d heard stories of big, slithering black snakes in these parts that hide in the woods and then make a sudden appearance, and blow me down I saw one today. I had to screech on the brakes, as there he was crossing the road in no particular hurry.
It was a Queen Snake, apparently.
Wow, there are 27 species and subspecies of snakes in Maryland, only two of which are venomous – phew.
That Queen Snake nearly made me crash, as did the topless/barefoot running man, which I, sadly, do not have a picture of to share with you…….
