It's freekin' hot here today...

...as in 96 degrees right now.

It was a mere 92 when I got back from my walk at around 11:00. A bit warm for exercise of that kind, though I guzzled a fair amount of water on my return.

Didn't take many pictures...there wasn't much to see.

Unless you count these two kittycats, beating the heat as best they could...



And a Model T Ford, of all things, whose driver braved the heat -- and black top, interior and paint job -- to give it a run...



This year is the 100th anniversary of the Model T, by the way. That makes it -- along with dirt, some rocks and dinosaurs -- older than me!

I don't need no Model T. Aside from the open sides and the crank, my work truck probably drives just like it, and it's just as hot in the summer.

I see the orange cat read the tsunami zone advisory.
Nice looking car. The driver may have braved the oven, but where did he go?
He may have had to pull over and call for help.

JohnO -- Actually, I do know what happened to the driver: he stopped at the park to use the, ummm, facilities. And the drinking fountain, too.

That model T is cool. It must be so strange to drive one of those things.

There was a tabby cat in my back yard this afternoon that looked like the ghost of my cat. He ignored me too ;)

Our grandfather had a Model T. It sat in the yard for years and just rusted away. I would love to see one in person now.
