Legend in my spare time

This heat is stifling. I haven’t even been able to water my lawn until after dark because I like to do it after the temperature drops down below 90°. It got up to 100.9° yesterday, but it only got up to 100.8° today.
I just came in from working on the truck–I was dripping sweat the entire time. When I bought it, you had to pull the inside door handle on the driver’s side really hard in order to get the door to open, even though opening the door from the outside was very easy. Last week, I was getting out of the truck and yanked on the door handle to open the door, and the handle broke completely off. I finally got around to buying a new one today ($14 at the Ford dealer), and found a few other problems while I had the door panel off. I managed to fix everything, but I spent two hours doing it and probably lost a few pounds worth of fluids (including a little blood from a hacksaw incident) in the process. I took the slack out of the cable that operates the door latch from the inside, and that fixed the problem of having to pull on the handle so hard. Someday, I’ll have to do the same thing to the passenger door, but it’s not quite as bad as this one was.
Traci and I made plans to drive along Reservation Ridge on Saturday, and when we returned to the pavement near Soldier Summit, we were going to keep going north and visit Mike and Allie. But, for the second time in a row, Michael got sick and it doesn’t look like we’ll be able to go, if for no other reason than so we don’t get their baby sick (if Michael’s feeling better by then). Last time, he had a fever, cough, and nausea, but this time it’s just fever and nausea (so I think we can rule out pneumonia this time).

  1. You’re lucky. It’s been over 110 degrees here in socal for the past week. Just taking my door panel off to fix a speaker wiring issue got me soaked. There is NO good reason for heat like that. I’m moving to alaska.
