This was funny! Thanks for the laugh.
I wondered where the phrase "cat's pajama's" came from.

Funny Stuff.
And Severn--just so you don't get confused--
32-f--is not the freezing point of water--it is the melting point of ice.

Chris geez bud, come visit me out here  
We're having a cool summer. It's been in the 70-80*.  That's pretty nice. But our winters, hey. What fun when it's -30. Like shoveling snow?

I hate the winters, there bone chillin cold!
I miss Georgia     

At 50 if it ever gets there, you guys pull out the parkas or what?

We have a cooling trend coming next week..should only be 100! When it gets to 125 here, we usually buy a bit more ice for the lemonade. When it gets below 80, we need a blankie at night!

very funny stuff!  i like it a lot.

for whoever asked, to convert from farenheit to celsius just subtract 32 and divide by 1.8 and you'll have celsius.

here in Las Vegas, a cool summer day rounds out at a cool, crisp 105 degrees. 75 is sweater time. we've never seen frozen water (it does that?).

We all got our demons.
We all got somethin' to atone for.
