“The air was already drunk with humidity when I stepped outside on that first morning.”

The heat and humidity are still around making life miserable. I gasped almost as soon as I opened the door when I went out to get the papers. To add to the misery I couldn’t find my papers at first. I even searched under the car. I cursed loudly a few times. Finally I found the papers hidden by greenery in the front garden.

The sky is cloudy, but it is hot at 81˚. A strong breeze is twisting small branches and blowing leaves left and right. There is a 51% chance of rain from Isaias. I’m hoping as we’ve had so little rain.

Henry won’t go out the dog door at night unless I turn on the outside light. It’s not really dark out there as little white lights are wrapped around the railing. He is always a bit wary.

I have a list of five errands and chores for today and tomorrow. The laundry tops my list. It always tops my lists.

When I was kid, my mother always had to iron our school and church clothes. As for me, I can’t remember when I last ironed, but I think it might have been 16 or more years ago, before I retired. My steam iron works well, as good as new, considering it was a house warming gift forty three years ago. My ironing board is also celebrating its forty third birthday. The other day my friend mentioned ironing her newly washed masks. I guess she wanted her entire ensemble unwrinkled.

The Invasion of the Body Snatchers, the original, is a favorite movie of mine. Kevin McCarthy plays the main character, Dr. Miles Bennell. He finds out people are being replaced by pods, and he runs to get away despite being chased by the townspeople, the pod people. Reaching the highway he sees a truck filled with pods and starts running up to cars screaming, “They’re here already! You’re next! You’re next!”
