Hell Hath Begun...

It's that time of year again down here where a huge magnifying glass appears over Arizona and broils us alive.

I gotta tell you, I'm not fond of the hot weather. Not when the Weather Channel says that it'll be at least 115 today, and 118 for both tomorrow and Friday. Ouch. **sigh**

My parents are enjoying their time in their RV. At the moment, they are crossing WA state into ID, where apparently there's a really nice RV campground up there near the north fork of the Salmon River. Cool, green, and with a river nearby. I guess it's even owned by a Lake Havasu resident. Small world, huh?

I recently turned 37. Feel any older? No, not really. Get any good stuff? You better believe it! The word went out that apparently I'd like some dvds, or else gift certificates to stores that sell them, so I definitely stocked up! Had fun at Hastings!! :) Even bought a bunch of TV series on dvd. MacGyver, Greatest American Hero (I realize this is dating me as being an old fart AND a geek, but I don't care!!), Highlander, and Robin of Sherwood, just to name a few. My mother-in-law is actually responsible for the Highlanders. She was walking through some store and saw 'em on sale a few months ago and picked up three seasons of 'em for me. Giliane & I really enjoy watching them together. Also, I'm really excited about getting the Robin of Sherwood, too. That one was special ordered. Anyone remember this TV series? Came out in the early to mid 80s. I think it's the best rendition yet of the Robin Hood series that I've ever seen.

Guess what Giliane got me! A dvd-recorder/dvr! What the hell is that, you ask? Well, consider it a dvd version of a vcr, with a digital video recorder built right in. That means we could be watching live tv, miss something, hit the rewind button, and watch what we just missed. It's really cool! It sure was a challenge to get the thing incorporated into the entertainment center, but it was worth the hassle!

Seen Ghost Rider yet? A decent, "brainless" movie that as long as you don't want to be intellectually challenged, it's worth watching. Good special effects. If you haven't seen it, and want to, don't read the next line. Essentially, it's about a motorcycle rider who makes a deal with the devil to save his father's life (dying from cancer). Father is cured, but killed in freak motorcycle crash (devil's doing???). Son laments father, leaves girlfriend, rides off. Years later, he's a famous stunt rider. Devil comes calling. He becomes Ghost Rider, the devil's bounty hunter to prey upon evil people.

That's it in a nutshell. If you like it, let me know, so that I know I'm not the only one. At least Giliane has expressed interest in watching it.

Ok, I'm signing off. Everyone have a great week! And for those of you that are suffering with us in Havasu, try not to melt!

Very nice! You certainly did a good job of getting great birthday gifts, you must be well liked by all! I am very sorry to hear about your HOT as HELL weather! I will think about you as we enjoy the cool Idaho summer.... Actually, it is very warm here on the Snake river in Clarkston, WA, around 92 or so today with lots of humidity!

Hang in there, it will be winder in 5 months!
