(OR) Events left this week, Week of August 2nd

With the thermometer close to bursting anyone that gave it a tap to make sure they weren't seeing things might have gotten mercury poisoning. Thursday is upon us and to most that means the start of the weekend (with a minor inconvenience called Friday work day). My house was so hot that the kitten was panting, the older cat looked more subdued than normal, and my wife kept drinking ice water like it was beer. Keep cool out there people.
