Seen this one today . Is it true ?
The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 95 and you feel a little chilly.
You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and
end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out
and add butter, salt and pepper.
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from
laying boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.
Ah, what a place to call home. . . God Bless Our State of Georgia!!

Why yes Al! It's just like that, except you can add August in on that too! :)

We used to say you could fry an egg on the sidewalk it was so hot.

Don't forget those old vinyl seats in the 70's cars. Man, you did NOT want to sit on that in the summer. Even if it didn't burn you, it would make you sweat and stick to the seats.

I tell you one thing, it's not as humid here on the southside of Atlanta as it is in Columbus. With Columbus being in a valley, it holds in the humidity. Makes you feel like you can't breath, don't want to exert any energy, just stay as still as possible. I don't miss that at all!

Thanks for the laughs! I will send this to Mama, she will enjoy it. She is still fighting being on the internet for more than half an hour. She sets a timer so she won't waste her day away on the computer! She told me to apologize for not being on here like I say she should. She just doesn't want to be sucked into the internet like we are yet I guess. :)

Hey if that's your stove in the gallery, looks like ours could be cousins. mine is about 2 1/2 ft wide, 3 ft tall and 4 ft deep including the water jacket. course mine is a boiler but the doors are almost twins - mine is 3/16 cold rolled with about 3/4" square tacked frame. your opening frame looks about that. door frame is on the hot side though, mine's out front. i just used tacked l-angle for hinges with loose bolts dropped thru them - the door weight keeps it there - never did add the nuts. i first saw the picture and wondered who took one of my stove. where does the black pipe go altogether? :)

This is a Russell wood furnace .I just got this one this year. and have been pretty much heating the house with it ( Hot air ) The gas one just comes on from 1 am to 6 am by then I have this one fired back up and it takes over . I came out of the bottom element hole and into the furnace
with the black pipe then into the the top element hole . I hole sawed two 1 1/16 inch holes in the front. the 3/4 inch pipe just slipped in there ,no gap at all , used two 18inch chunks of pipe and tied them to gether with a three inch . That picture shows the pipe in the fire box . Saving money on gas now on electricy for hot water . Now I can stand in the shower with hot water running for as long as I want and all it cost is the pump starting once or twice . Life is good .
How ya feeling .
