Even though we live in Oregon, we are experiencing a heat wave. Balancing out the three feet of snow we had this winter, our 90+ degree weather day will probably make a few of my out-of-state readers laugh… but around here the weather is the lead story on every local newscast.

The deck guys showed-up this morning (early) and finished-up the remaining tasks on the deck project: buffering a few cement footings, plus a hook & eye closure for the gate we had installed on the deck to protect our Little Grand Dawg – the precious Reese.

My Driver moved the patio dining table and two chairs onto the deck – along with BBQ grill. No need to move anything else as it will all need to be cleared in a week or two while the deck is sealed. But for now – we can enjoy our new tree house in the busy forest behind our home.

With the hot weather, tonight was a perfect night to enjoy the fresh-caught wild King Salmon – just delivered to the local markets – over a Caesar salad. DT grilled the fish outside – so there was no need to cook indoors.

It is great to live in the Pacific Northwest

Until my next warm weather update, I remain, your chillin’ correspondent.
