Huh... Time for a Hump Day Hodge-Podge
Hey, it's been hot! I know, that's a newsflash for June in Phoenix. The thermometer in my car was reading 118 on Monday - I'm hoping that was wrong, but the plants in my yard tend to confirm the high temps by crisping up and gasping their last. I don't care how many umbrellas I put up, the vegetation is going down. Except for the Bermuda grass which grows all the places I DON'T want it to, and none of the place I DO. Friggin' grass.
Okay, you have to admit, the umbrellas are inspired. I went to the Good Will last night and got two more to put over the eggplants. One of them is a rather hideous purple and the other one is covered with cactus and ponies. I don't think the eggplant are very choosy, though. It's ponies or die, really. (oh, and I just whack off the handles with a hammer and then duct tape them - love duct tape - to garden stakes - genius! Jus' sayin')
Fun Job Stuff...
This week was a semi-annual sample collection event AND the installation of a pressure transducer (the Global Logger WL16). That's one of things I like about my job. It's never, ever, the same and it looks like July is going to be a busy month.
Well, I know this has probably been almost as thrilling to read as it was to write. I completely left out the part about Boobapalooza: Talking Titties. I'll have to do that next time. Right now, I have to go cover the eggplants.
