Shade hoppin' day

It's a hot and muggy day and we are now in a fine shady spot next to the road. Nice( the dog) is sleeping and I am doing my best to rest. Every time I lay back another car pulls up for a picture, a policeman checks on my progress and a newspaper photographer comes for the story. And then there is the ticks , spiders , and other bugs who come for the feast.
I am about two miles from New Haven but the hottest time of day is upon us and this spot feels almost cool..I may gat up soon and trudge to town even in the heat. The bugs are thick and the traffic seems lighter. Then again I may just wait awhile.

I'm happy to hear that you & Nice are resting during the hottest part of the day.

I hope you rest everyday at the same time.

Good luck, be careful, and THANK YOU for what you are doing.

We are arranging for you to camp in the Hermann City Park campground; we will pay the fee.

Best wishes,
