    How dry is it in Texas?
    *
    *
    A buddy out of Longview Tx. said he'd killed a mosquito that was carrying a canteen.
    A man in Dime Box Tx. said the chicken farmers were giving the chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.
    *
    In Lake Palestine Tx. , they caught a 20 lb catfish that had ticks on it!
    *
    But just this week, in Bryan Tx., a fire hydrant was seen bribing a dog.
    *
    It's so dry in Texas that the Baptists are starting to baptize by sprinkling, the Methodists are using wet-wipes, the Presbyterians are giving out rain-checks, and the Catholics are praying for the wine to turn back into water.
    *
    Now THAT's Dry!

    It was 100 here today, and again tomorrow.
    West Texas that is.

    It's hot enough that if you're not careful, the buckle on your seat belt will leave a permenant brand on your side.

    As the comments went on, I feel so sorry for those who live in such a hot area. There was a thread the other day about AC settings. I realized how hot it is in other parts of the country and I complain abut 85 degrees. It's dry here but not so very hot and dry that our catfish have ticks (LOL)

    We have had a welcome break this week but weatherman says all next week will be close to 100 every day. Surely a break will come soon in your area and the others who need it soooo badly.
