The Good Deeds Of Summer

Loading in Alabama, with 30,000 pounds of machinery headed for New York.

A few clunks on the trailer during the loading process caused me to open the back door to check on Ed.  The rush of heat that smacked me in the face almost made me forget why I went out there in the first place.

I felt so bad for all the guys working in the heat and humidity (although they're probably used to it), that I cut up a bunch of cold, juicy watermelon, packed the chunks into red Solo cups with a plastic fork for easy eating, and went back outside to hand them out to the six guys working in the heat.

Then I quickly retreated back to my air-conditioned oasis.

Good deed of the day?  Check.

That is exactly how I pack them for my teenage boys and their grown father. ;)

Try freezing some fresh raspberries and add to your water - makes an amazing difference. Better than any flavored water you can buy. To add a little zing, throw in a slice or two of lemons. For someone who hates drinking water, this is the only way I can do it. I've tried cantaloupe, blackberries, lime, strawberries, mango, cucumber and mint - mixed and separately. Raspberries and lemon are the best concoction.

Cheers to a Happy (hopefully, not so hot) Summer!

MY NA FRIEND: The raspberry idea sounds great! I'm not a water lover either, so the raspberries and lemon sound great. This is might even be a nice treat for Ed because he loves to drink water, especially when he's outside working. Thanks!
