and the heat wave just keeps on keeping on. We are fortunate here in central Illinois as we are just having the terrible heat. My nephew in Charleston WV has been without electricity since last Friday night after a powerful thunder storm. He had to discard a freezer and refrigerator full of food. My heart goes out to those still suffering from power outages. This heat wave is supposed to break next Monday and I hope that it does.
Yesterday was an uneventful day. I heard all of the fireworks last night but didn’t go anywhere to watch them. I even had the TV off and read while I listened to the loud booms. And America is a year older!
This morning I do have to get out to mail some letters and early tomorrow morning I have another test at the hospital.
Some news in the morning paper has led me to another rant. At Hallendale Beach Florida a lifeguard, Thomas Lopez, helped save a drowning man and got fired for it. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/04/tomas-lopez-lifeguard-fired-hallandale-beach_n_1649803.html. if you haven’t read this you have to click on the link and read it. Thomas, my hat is off to you!
And another newsworthy thing. I got a beautifully embossed thank you card from Sherman’s, the place where I purchased my TV last month. Are they out for more business or what?? I saw on the internet that the Better Business Bureau had given this store an A+ rating. My thank you note had a handwritten message in it signed by one of the biggies. Terrible handwriting but the thought was there and my faith in mankind upped a little bit.
I do need to get going before it gets any hotter. Predicted high for today actual temp is 101.
Stay cool and stay safe and be happy!!
