repeat heat

This week we had two straight days of record high temperatures. It was hotter than a usual hot July day, but not so bad. I walked in the early morning in Glendover Park, at lunch at Breckinridge Park and after work at Hoblitzelle Park. Tomorrow I will try to get my walks in before noon while the heat is low enough to stand. The record high predicted for tomorrow is even higher--from today's 105 F. to tomorrow's 105 to 110 F.
That is a bit warmer than the usual late July day.

We went to Holy Frijoles tonight. I had carne asada and camerones and a brisket taco. We watched the Great British Baking Show and a rerun of Bluebloods. I worked hard and well at work today.

Last night I had a good experience at free legal clinic, because a repeat client told me of a good outcome of some advice i had given.  The main difference, I think, between clients without much money and clients with money to pay for lawyers is that clients without much money have less money.

I was so sorry to hear of the loss of 17 lives in a duck boat accident on Table Rock Lake in Missouri. I remember a treat of my childhood was to ride duck boats in Hot Springs, Arkansas. But ducks and bad weather do not mix.  I am sorry to hear of such a horrible event.
