Ivan's Friday.

I tried 486 times yesterday to post this photo and stoopy Blogger would not cooperate. I've slept since then and now don't remember what I wanted to say! Figures.

Anyway, it's going to be boiling for lots this weekend. Stay out of the heat and keep hydrated, all.

While I Wait For The Heat To Subside.

I thought I would answer some questions!

Izzy, why is it so hot at your house?
It's always hotter here than at the airport (where the "official" temperature is recorded). Why? Well, our elevation is about 5,646 feet, almost 300 feet higher than the airport. We are closer to the sun, of course!

But why has it been running 10°-15° hotter than usual?
I don't know but I think Caroline's screaming at Ivan might have something to do with it.

Izzy, what's with the dead spot cleaners?
It seems this is a problem for lots of folks. We are on our second (and final) Bissell Spotlifter 2x. We find they last about four to five years. The first one the battery went stone cold dead. This one just decided it did not want to charge without melting its wires, never a good thing. Because it has a nickel cadmium battery in it and because my mom worries about weird stuff, it's now resting in a place where the least amount of damage can be done should it decide to spontaneously combust before she can safely dispose of it.

Well, that's it for me right now. My question is When is dinner?

Elliott's End O' The Week.

Well, our connectivity woes finally least for the time being. We're keeping our paws crossed.

Ivan's crow pal found two other friends and they had a little dance party on the skylight a few evenings back. Boy, did that get everybody all wound up! Mom of course thought it was those terrible cowpie-crapping pigeons and scared them away before she realized they weren't. (Ivan was bummed.)

And today we managed to kill another little spot remover machine. Well, everybody but me, of course, because I am very fastidious and don't leave things on the carpet that need cleaning up.

I am just too sedate a boy for such excitement. I think I need to nap.

We've Been Upside Down All %$#* Day.

We've had connectivity problems all day, up down up down up down. Stupid interwebs provider! You'd think Ivan and Izzy were running things!

I can't even check online how far above 100° it is, and if I had to guess I'd say it's probably 357°!

I'm melting!

Izzy Listens.

Even when I'm relaxing I keep an ear tuned for birds and stuff. Because you just never know when a robin or a lizard might show up on the balcony.

Or when your bro will climb the tower and try to steal your coveted spot!

See you next week!

We're Glad That's Over.

Poor Elliott. Dumb people shooting off very loud (and illegal) fireworks had him in a tizzy over the last several days, the worst being last night. Mom even put out the troll boxes with the doors removed and emptied a kitchen cabinet so we'd have places to hide, but El really wanted to hide deep. He passed up those choices in favor of hiding under the desk in the office all night.

He's recuperating today with a long and peaceful nap.
