Growing up I remember getting our first fan for the house - a box fan for one room. Always enjoyed going to a friends house because they had a fan in every room of the house and with the open windows it was great sleeping for sure.
Heat wave, I think we've become soft to the airconditioning and refrigeration in homes.
Why I remember when the ice truck run by the house out in the country and Mom would buy a block that was wrapped in burlap. No telling where all that burlap had been prior to wrapping the ice.
Now, I don't like winter weather, but slap me if you hear me complain about the heat.
God gave us trees to get under, sometimes a blowing wind, and water to drink and bathe in.
Well, my three cents for the summer.
Just hope they don't route any of my orders though Death Valley!
