(Relatively) Cool Weather

As the Fourth of July draws near, the weather continues to cool. Last weekend saw temperatures above 110°. Today is expected to reach only 97°. The temperatures forecast for this weekend are considerably lower than what we experienced last weekend.

The New Grill

I have been anticipating the arrival of the new grill with great enthusiasm. I have been planning July 4th as the time to inaugurate the new grill with some of the delicacies sent us from Omaha steaks by reader Chris for my birthday/our anniversary. Yesterday, I checked the delivery status of the grill and learned that it is not projected to be delivered until next Monday! The old grill shall be pressed into service this weekend. It is well that I did not kick it to the curb as I had intended to do yesterday morning!
