Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime

It's going to be a hot week here. High temperatures, possible thunderstorms, all that stuff we get in the summer. Still, I'd rather be hot than frozen! And it is Fourth of July week, so lots of vacationers, parties, and fireworks. It will be interesting to see how (or if) Lambeua reacts to those.
