This time of year, in the state where I live, it's miserable outside. Here I am. Just kidding. Buzzy is feeling it too. 100 degrees in the shade turns me into a wet noodle. Drains all strength. I guess that is why they take siestas in Mexico. If you don't get out when the sun comes up, you'll have to wait until midnight to do anything outside, then fight the mosquitos.
Of one thing I am sure. Henry James didn't come from Oklahoma.
