Happy Monday, the last day of August! It's been a very HOT month here in Pennsylvania. I have been mostly inside doing what I love to do (reading, crocheting and watching dvds), hanging out with my best buds, Lucy and Dolly. They, like me, are a lazy lot. Zeppy, #4 cat, loves being outside in the heat but not too far away; stays close enough so he can let me know if he starts to bake. Dolly spends a lot of time staring out the windows trying to see our resident groundhog who comes out to eat several times a day. She barks and he or she stands up trying to see just how much of a danger she is posing. Dolly goes wild.
I have been very lazy about posting about my trip to Maine that I took the first 2 weeks of August. My dad had a bad fall and I left to go up a week before I intended. I spent a lot of time helping my mom take care of him and I also cleaned, cooked and ran errands. It was soooo hot up there on the Island without air conditioning. They have a fan but they, being in their late 80's, are always cold even though I am dripping water in droves. I kid you not, I had to carry a small towel around with me while in their house.!!! I ended up leaving to go back to PA and to air conditioning after 2 weeks because I just couldn't take it any longer. It doesn't help that I don't have cell or internet service there either.

At the historical society I walked around the buildings and came across this old wheelbarrow and wondered whatever happened to my Grandfather's.
