(Guest post by Don’s wife Cathy:)
Ever feel like the extreme heat & humidity this past week (across most of the USA) was driving you nuts – not to mention being cooped up (in air-conditioned splendor, but still . . .) that whole time? Apparently this was also a problem for the intrepid-but-becalmed ship’s crew in Muppet Treasure Island! Thankfully, by the time you see this, the temperatures will have dropped to more reasonable levels (approx. 85 degrees Fahrenheit/30 degrees Celsius) in our part of the country – although readers of this blog on the US East Coast will still have to suffer for a day or two.
On weeks like this past one, I wouldn’t mind trading weather with our brethren & sistren in the UK.
