Yesterday, I reminded myself once again that, to quote Homer J. Simpson, Lord help me, I’m just not that bright. In the morning, the temperature was in the mid-80s, but the dew had finally burned off the lawn, and forecast for today was saying a high of 95. So I went outside and mowed the lawn about 11am. Finished it up just before noon. And then spent the next hour sitting there, wondering just how long it would take me to recover to the point that my vision un-tunneled and I started thinking clearly again. About the only reason I didn’t call 911 was that I was still sweating profusely, so I was pretty sure it wasn’t heat stroke. Sheesh. Heck of a way to spend the afternoon.

Today’s pictures are two tall and notable buildings in the San Francisco skyline, both taken as I was walking along the Embarcadero from the Ferry Building to Fisherman’s Wharf. In both cases, the palm trees in the foreground added to the picture, I think, and they’re both angles I haven’t looked at before. I particularly like the one of the pyramid, with the tree framing it.

Today, it’s just going to be hot out. And the air will be full of ozone, if you believe the reports. I’m thinking it’ll be a good day to stay inside, except perhaps for a trip to the grocery store to restock the larder in preparation for the weekend’s games in St. Paul. Yes, that last will require driving, which will make things worse, but it’s gotta be done, and I don’t know if I’ll be able to find the time for it tomorrow.
