No right to gripe about the heat

We are officially in Dry Summer, and Wet Summer should be arriving this week. It is currently 110 F under a blazing sun. I went out to water my potatoes and that is it. I'm not going anywhere. The temperature will start to go down as the rainy season begins, and I hope my potatoes thrive and don't get moldy.

I've been fairly busy at work, which is a good thing. I've been negligent of my exercise out of a dread of going outside at noon to walk to the gym. This isn't really justified because noon is NOT the day's high temperature. I did go to a torturous workout with my personal trainer on Thursday; my arms still won't bend all the way.

The biggest news is that Bucky got neutered yesterday. He is a little dim intellectually and his hips bend outward strangely when he lies on his tummy. These are both effects of his being quite inbred, and they stop propogating with him. He has little crescent shaped incisions on both sides of his scrotum. He's not worrying at them, so all seems well. Pet DoctoRx on Oracle Road charges $47 for a cat neuter, $59 for a spay. We're going to go back to our usual vet, but they wanted $450 for a neuter and we said no.

Cripes. Ozzie was like $120, but that's because we got him chipped, and fluoride on his toofies, too. And that was at the expensive only-cat vet.

Don't think Ozzie had sutures? Hard to tell on a black cat.

Agree with you about the heat, though as far as I know Las Vegas doesn't have wet heat - the lack of such was one of the reasons I moved out here, after all. 5 PM seems the worst time of day for heat up here, though it doesn't seem to cool down as rapidly at dusk as one would think it would in a desert. Then again, this is a city in a desert, not a desert period, so...
