Ok, we are having the northwest heat wave and I am on the Olympic Peninsula.
I know LOTS of heat tricks, because I went to high school in Alexandria Virginia. And slept in the upstairs front bedroom, no air conditioning.
So yesterday I start using more of my heat tricks.
The silliest was the bathtub. I pull the old bathtub I’d gotten from a man two blocks away who was renovating his house away from the fence. I rinse it out and get a tub plug, wrong size, and plastic wrap. Fixed. I fill about half way with water, which is delightfully cold, and then get the fountain. I got the fountain at a garage sale for $5.00. I plug it in and instant fountain. I happily stick my feet in it.
I send a picture to a friend, who responds “Redneck wading pool.”
“No, no.” I respond. “I was raised by beatniks. It’s a beatnik bathtub fountain.”
He laughs. “Ok, yeah.”
