As some of you may have heard, it gets hot in Arizona in the summertime.  107 in Phoenix yesterday with 110 only a few days away.  It's not that hot where we live but as I've gotten older I've found that a high temperature in the 90's is too much for me.  All of this is by way of explaining the following picture.

The BRD (Beautiful Rich Daughter) and her Beau Jack were invited to a party at some friends' home yesterday beginning at 3 p.m.  That is nearly the hottest part of the day and for some unknowable reason the hosts have no air conditioning or even a swamp cooler.  So what do you do?  You go late (they went about 5 p.m.), wear minimal clothing, and try to stay outside.  This is what the BRD did at the annual Gin and Tonic Party.

She said she borrowed the hat from another guest for the photo.

Beau Jack also dressed, uh, minimally.

That's proof it was hot.  It's the first time I've ever seen that old cowboy in shorts and sandles!


  1. 3pm...with no A/C or swamp cooler? I think the host's brains were cooked a loooong time ago. Glad everyone survived OK. ;)


  2. Theirs must be one of the few houses in Arizona without AC.

  3. Love the hat! I can't imagine being outside at that time of day here.

  4. They must be goog friends to visit in that heat.

  5. The hat is fun - but I would want it to have Diet Sun Drop instead of liquor :)
