Rise and Shine

Good Morning, Delaware County!

Just saw a news report on television telling me it's hot out there.
Just read a news report in the newspaper telling me it's hot out there.
Just heard on the radio it's hot out there.
Just walked outside and, know what, it's hot out there.
It's June in Pennsylvania. It's hot out there. We know it. We can feel it. We are paying outrageously high PECO Energy prices to get away from it.
Enough already. We know it's hot out there. It's like telling me we are paying too much for gas.
Here's a prediction: It's going to be hot in July and August as well.

Since that's out of the way, we can get to the real interesting thing of the day.
I was treated Saturday to a wonderful meal with great company at a Mexican restaurant in Philadelphia Saturday night.
It is a small place with an unbelievably stocked tequila bar, good food and good service.
Still, the best part of the night was being able to eat, enjoy talking, joke and relax. Every once in a while, despite the world outside, it's nice to escape and forget about the pressures we all face.
Forget the heat. Forget the high fuel costs. Forget the bills. Forget the yelling. Forget schools. Forget arguments.
Even for a couple of hours, it's nice to escape.
