Into the Shade!
Finally the temps picked up to where we had expected them to be --- in the upper seventies (F) Of course, that means we had to move into the shade during the early afternoon.
I had been sitting out there in the sun with my coffee at 8am. That's the time when it really feels comfortable.
Today we did not develop any other activities than driving to town for laundry and checking the P.O.Box. Well, there was nothing in the mail.

Anyway it sure was an ice-cream-type-of-weather, so we enjoyed a portion of that in mid-afternoon.

Just talked to a neighbor here and tonight he will have a bonfire so we are bound for that.
At the other bonfire place up front at the host station they had an encounter with this animal:

A sting by this fellow is mostly painful but for adults not life-threatening. Kids and pets are at danger though. Local medical facilities throughout the South-West are familiar with treatment of scorpion stings.

Scorpions are nocturnal and hide in wood piles and under rocks. They move very fast and there are several varieties out there. The Arizona Bark Scorpion is the most dangerous and venomous of them.

When moving rocks and wood pieces it is a good idea to use sticks first and/or gloves. At night a flashlight is advisable.

Now, stay out of danger and thanks again for visiting.
