I just stay underwater anymore. Tricky to breathe but it's cooler.

Thanks for your sweet comment! LOVE your recipe for a cool down! Will have to keep that in mind.....it's over 100 here today ~ not quite as hot as Phoenix, but HOT! Can't wait to meet you and all the other wonderful ladies in September! Stay cool and keep that supply of Diet Coke stocked! ;-)

For some reason, I am facinated by the socks.

Several years ago we had a discussion about adding a pool and my husband won. So I went to Walgreens, bought me a blow up kiddie pool, put on my swimsuit, poured myself a glass of wine and got in. It didn't phase him one bit. I still don't have a pool. Evidently over the years he has developed quite the immunity to whining.

Got any Hank Williams, Jr. in the background??? Whatever cools you off; we can only take off so much!! Thanks for your comment about my Ally and her fav horse. Can't wait to see what you do for the 4th!!! Be SAFE ~ Debi

You think holding your hand out in front of you like that is going to keep the water off??? Looks like a fun way to stay cool though.

just call me jo said...

You could have come over and swam with us and Barley. I mean she is a dog, but she's pretty clean. I love your redneck cool down. You guys really look good out there. At least you have grass. All we have are rocks. You've got on a Gunnarboo style hat. And look every bit as stylish as he does. Had fun Friday. It is blowing 60 mph right now and dust is filling our pool. We might have a mud bog by the 4th.

Why didn't the rednecks turn on the A/C? Lol :)

Tabitha said...

Hahahahaha! Hope you remembered the sunscreen. Have a fantastic 4th! :-)

It's a scientific fact that sprinklers have far more "cool factor" than pools. Especially while wearing socks.

You guys rock.

I remember being 9 months pregnant (when your body temp goes up anyway) when we lived in Tucson. I thought I would melt. I would wear long pants, and long sleeves, hose myself down, and walk around like a self-contained evaporative cooler. Not especially attractive, but effective.

Y'all are too cool for school!

Hi Holly....Met you at Jo's....the other one. LOL LOL

I, too, am a AZ gal only I travel in the summer to get out of the heat. Please don't hate me. LOL


Anyway.....when I used to be home during the summer....I often would open the freezer door and just stand there.....actually quite refreshing. (O:(O:

Glad I found you,

Jo

Karen said...

1. Nice hats
2. Who took the photos of you two?
3. What kind of sprinkler were you using?
4. You two are ingenious....if not a little strange.
5. I'd do this
6. Love you.......

Linda said...

Ha Ha! You remind me of Don and I and our idea to get a kids wading pool one year to keep cool...it was only big enough to sit in...which we did until our skin shriveled up!
