Not sure if we can stand this much longer. The daily temperatures are typically 76C/24C for the high and 12C/54C at night. I had to gather up all our winter things and put them away and haul out all the summer clothing, short sleeved shirts and T shirts. The locals laugh when I say it’s almost too warm. We have been taking walks on the beach almost every day except when we take long walks in one of the many local nature preserves. There is a great little store in Panacea with a resident in store butcher. We have been eating local fish almost every day. We haven’t gotten tired enough of walking the beaches and woods to get the canoe and bikes out but maybe today, if we feel like it. We fell asleep to the sound of a great horned owl. And we are getting a lot of writing done. I have also been making figures for our book and as usual hubby dearest and I have had a few heated discussions about specific points in our joint book. I am now reading Jack’s latest book with an eye to advising him on scientists’ behaviour and doing a figure for him. Cypress has asked me to have a look at the sea-mobile’s vent with an eye to advising him on installing a fan since I have done that on our own rig. When the sea mobile comes back on Friday I’ll do that. We have many friends to catch up with, multiple dinner invitations. The synagogue in Tallahassee is gearing up for Channukah and we have made our reservations for that. Saturday is the big Christmas parade’festival in Tallahassee and we’re going to that. A local choir of over 100 people is planning a Hallelujah Chorus and we’re going to go to that. Such a hard life!
