Yeah, David Crockett was quoted as saying "You can all go to Hell, I'm going to Texas" circa 1835.

I'd like to know if he was still next to all those folks after the end of those journeys.

High 90's for us this week. Muggy too, but I get my golf in during the morning hours. I had one of my better rounds of the year this morning, so I didn't mind the heat. A cool 1 under 71. Celebrated with a cold refreshment.

Ahhhh...sigh....

My outside gauge got to 109.9. I have a unit inside of my house. I looked at it a couple of minutes ago and it's blanked out. I guess it doesn't go to 110.

Geezzzz...kind of reminds me of this....

There is a guy at our club that just shot his age. He's 82. And he's on the same med's as me, so there is hope.

We've got 108 at the moment. "If I owned Texas and Hell, I'd live in Hell and rent out Texas."

Just looked at our 10 day forecast and was relieved to see some relief on the horizon. Temps are forecast to drop below 105 next week.

Those Texas temps are impressive. Phoenix heat but with more humidity. People around here complain when the temp goes above 95 for a few days. Hang in there- it has to cool down at some point.

Noah's flood involved 40 days and 40 nights of rain.

We finally had a day without rain, after 43 days with rain at my house, longer than Noah's flood. Some days it would drizzle or sprinkle, and other days we had torrential rains of 4-5 inches with local flooding. But rain, rain, always rain, every day.

I kind of liked it. We south Louisianians develop webbed feet and thrive in this stuff.

So, now that it didn't rain for a whole day, I guess we will have highs over 95 like the rest of you....

110 yesterday. At 8:30 this morning, it was already 92 degrees. Pool is like soup, can't use, feel like a lobster in a pot in it. Got chigger bites. Got nailed with a bunch of fire ants on my arm, it's been swelled up for 2 days now. It's so hot outside, it's like it's airless. But I'm doing OK. Really I am. Telly, you're OK, you're OK, man, this will all be over in about October. Maybe me & Telly and me could work for a Welcome to Texas promotion job.

Oh lawd, jes' keep the power on and the A/C workin'

Keep prayin'. ERCOT is setting new power usage records every day and begging people to turn off all non-essential electrical devices between 3 and 7 PM. Please, no 'rolling blackouts'....

Come on, October!!!

So are all of you playing from the senior tees or what?
I have three more months to move up at 65. Age for senior tees varies a lot from course to course. You can play in the senior amateur at age 50 in MS.
