Yes, it was terribly hot in the car on the way back from the vet clinic today! Too short a distance for the AC to really cool the car and even the open windows did not help! But I hope it'll dry my laundry, as the laundry dryer refused to start its work! :banghead:

It is still not warm here, and very windy today.

Fireblade it looks like you get it really well at least some of the time.

The faces on the little birds are so cute. But I think the swans did not want to be seen, which if there were eagles about might be a very good thing.

The yellow face fooled me -- but I did think they look like our Chickadees.
