Brandon's showmanship class at the county fair was really, really late today. Of course he was in the last heat of Advanced and then chosen for the finals. (He placed 3rd overall.) The grace comes with the fact that the later his class went into the ring, the more the temperature dropped. The thermometer read 99 degrees when I headed to the fairgrounds at 6:45pm and when I came home at 10:30 it was still 85. It's hot. But the worst is over. (At least that's what the weather man is telling us.) Thank goodness. It's hard to function over the century mark. We don't have too many, but this little heat spell has been a doozie!
