Five O’clock somewhere…..



fort langley oct 2008-1








Sunday, August 1st..half of the summer is now over..where has the month of July gone…we have had no rain to speak of here in Coquitlam..our air conditoner has been humming away..keeping us cool..thank goodness has made life bearable..

The past summers, have been excruciating..the sun beating in from 2 pm until the sunsets..our method to keep cool..was to wet towels…put them in the freezer..and when they were frozen we would drape them around ourselves just to be able to stand the heat…this process is no more..

I am cooking at the normal dinner hour, we are quite happy to go outside on the sundeck and barbeque…this little electrical appliance has made a huge improvement on our summer life!!..and for this we are forever grateful..that and for ‘happy hour’..Its five o’clock somewhere!!












my quote of the day…

  1. So glad that little A/C is working it's magic on keeping you folks cool. Makes life bearable I'm sure. Have a great week ahead.

  2. Lab's and Retrievers proof that God loves us and is providing us with happiness, Tucker is like Rigg's he will swim and run till he drop's, just like the little boy he still is at a year and a half.Those puppy pictures are gorgeous, but it takes so long for them to start mellowing out. I hope by the time we get on the road we have run some of the puppiness out of Rigg's. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
