    Martha likes it hot! That’s no surprise. LMAO! You sound like my husband. He often mows the yard in the middle of the afternoon. When I remind him its the hottest part of the day, he just says “I know.” I was raised in Tampa. Hot is a way of life . I can relate to enjoying the heat of the car – after a cold grocery store trip and only for a second or two. LOL I don’t know that I love the heat, but I greatly dislike the cold for any length of time. One of the phenomenons that I can’t stand about living in Tampa is that store and restaurant owners feel the necessity to keep their establishments very cold inside to accommodate the tourists who aren’t used to the heat. It gets the hell on my nerves. The air only needs to be conditioned to a comfortable level – not to colder than winter in the summer. By the way – awesome pic!!!

      Thanks Liz! I hear you on the overkill with AC in restaurants. I am also one of those people who always takes a sweater to the movie theater. Why the hell do they keep it so dang cold in there??

    I’m curious what your parents were doing that landed your family on a ranch for those years, and what changed. Inquiring minds want to know.

      Well, it’s sort of a long story, but the long and short of it is they wanted a change and my mom had always dreamed of working the land. My mother’s family owned a lot of land in west Texas, so we moved out there for a while. But it turned out that working the land wasn’t as dreamy as she thought it would be, which is why we finally moved. They moved to Austin a while back for family stuff and the rest of us just sort of migrated here after a while.
