It's 107 degrees today, Miss Penny,
I think most everyone has slipped on down to the watering hole.
The rest, I think, are headed off for a siesta in the shade.
Hmmm... seems like a smart thing to do Clive. Why then are those not-so-smart people sitting outside in this heat-- and with towels around their necks?
The whole town is without electricity, Miss Penny-- some transformer accident up on the big road, I hear. It is 99 degrees inside with no air conditioning and nary a breeze. I hear if you wet a towel and sit where there is a bit of air flow it cools ya' down. Sorta like a homemade swamp cooler.
Wow- that's pretty smart; maybe I should try it.
You can stay out here and work on your tan Miss Penny, but I'm headed for the shade... you comin'?
I'm coming Clive, right after Tiny Tail finishes drinking-- I'm thirsty!
