Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Ms. RFD is laid low by heat prostration - sunstroke - heat exhaustion - call it what you will, it's unpleasant to the max and I am annoyed with myself for not paying attention to what my body was telling me yesterday.

I was out on the tractor, mowing the pastures one last time before winter, and just wanted to finish and yes, I was wearing a hat, drinking lots of water, wearing sunscreen, sunglasses and thinking cold thoughts, but the sun was stronger than all of the above and here I am, headachy, nauseous, irritable and miserable.

I feel one with the mad dogs and Englishmen who go out in the mid-day sun...when will I ever learn ?
