Hot day in Maryland on Saturday, but it's been much worse than this. Today was a good day to stay inside in the air conditioning and we got a so much done. We went through the whole basement today and got rid of a lot of things that were old and useless, and just generally cleaned up down there. It was nice and cool and it went pretty smoothly.
Headed outside for a walk afterwards and came back dripping wet. The humidity was through the roof! But luckily there were no deer flies. Those things are awful, the way they dive bomb and buzz around your head and when they land . . . they leave a big welt. The only thing good about them is that they're a little slower than my nemises, the fly (see a few posts down) and therefore easier to kill. A flyswatter isn't needed. Don't you love all these fly facts?
George didn't seem to mind the heat all that much. He loves a nice walk and enjoyed getting hosed off with cool water when we got home.
I took these pictures of him this evening and then we went for a bike ride afterwards. George's favorite new thing is running parallel to a bike and it's quite nice, actually. We go down the paved back road and follow it up through another horse farm that's located nearby. It's a Standardbred place that emcompasses a lot of acreage both in this area and across the main county road.
Ah, George. I love ya.
