The local car club host the Northwest Nationals during the last weekend in July and it got so hot over the last few years they decided to do it a week later, guess what, still to darn hot for most of us. Most of the cars can find shade on the grass and tree lined grounds, but there is always some overflow that ends up in the parking lot. We are scheduled for cooler weather next week, hope it comes through.

I was much the same for those of us who were at the SETN in Lebanon this year. Friday saw 104, Saturday we had rain but it was still hot.
We have been looking at other shows earlier in the year, July is just to hot for most of us.

It is 81 right now but it has been close to 100. It has been the hottest summer I can remember and I moved here in 1956 about an hour north of here. We did not get our first window air until 1961. My father was a Methodist preacher and could not afford one. I bought the first box fan for the house. A little National-built home. Every pew of the church had cardboard fans, usually provided by the local mortuary.

Old farmers wife’s remedies for no bees. Take your wife’s broom out and gently beat the plants. It will bring on the veggies. I’ve personally done it and it works. May be a little late this year.

Our grass is burnt up from weeks of high heat and no rain. Livestock is in trouble around here. I’ll be hauling hay from 2-3 states away this year to get the horses (11) through the winter. Not gonna be cheap.

We had rain yesterday and they are predicting more for the next 4 days. A week ago so we had huge wind and rain over the middle part of the state, Indy, and north for 150 miles.
