This weather is just out of control. Sunday it was pretty nice and seemed to be in the upper 80's, though I never checked. Yesterday was totally noon the weather channel said 92 and 'feels like' 104! That's a 12 degree difference. Of course, that is inland and not on the coast where we are but outside the air was just plain hot to breathe. We rode bikes a little in the morning and that was it.......we stayed inside most of the day. Samantha came over with the kids to use the computer and they just hung out inside, too. Tyler, the 4-year old, has been spending the night since Sunday. They all have to take works out better that way! :-)

Tuesday is $1 Movie day with $1 popcorn and $1 cokes so we'll all be inside the cool theater for a couple of hours anyway!

Several months ago, I bought a new bike: A Schwinn three-wheeler. I don't have any pics yet but will get some soon. It took me a few rides to get accustomed to the feel of it as it is somewhat different from riding a two wheeler but now I love it. Buddy (or even a grandkid) can ride in the basket. Here's the generic pic from the web site:

If Walmart kept one out on display, they could probably sell a lot more of them. We usually see another one in the park about once every week or so.

We get a lot of reaction and comments when riding it around the campground, especially if we have Buddy in the basket.

The snowbird parks are full of those three wheelers. Now that I'm officially a "geezer", I may just have to get one myself!

Love the bike. There is a four wheel one here in the Park. I haven't tried to get a picture of it yet, but I may. It is home made and he has a little dog that runs along the side of it, but he never goes very fast and knows where the dog is at all times. I think it is cute.
