Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

i try to hit the streets before work. temps should be around 101F for the next day or so here, and in S.C. the muggy-factor is around 5 billion percent.

try to roll around 6:30am. you'll be good for an hour' + ride and little to worry about. the sleepiness goes away as soon as the cool morning air wakes you up! just my $0.000002 worth.

Yesterday, a bank thermometer stated 104 @ 4:00 PM. I forgot to look at it today.
