One Way to Beat the Texas Heat!

 

JIm & Bear After a Long Run

 

There is one way to beat the heat ... no I'm not doing a post to rub in the fact that our Dallas Mavericks took the NBA Title. 

Each morning my husband Jim takes our Black Lab, Bear (a female .. my husband named her and I thought it sounded like a boy name but I digress) for a job.  We live in a beautiful community in McKinney, Texas know as Eldorado, which is a master planned community known for its trees, golf courses and pretty terrain.

Now I know you members that live in parts of the country that these would look like shrub trees must understand, this is a rare sight for thie geographic area so it is a wll sought after premium ... trees!

Bear enjoys her after run treat of a good hose soaking and bites of water as she enjoys the cool down!

This time of year in Texas we have been reaching 100 degrees and promises of even higher temperature to come.  It is during these times that we reflect on those special moments in the winter and wish we could average the temperatures to get a cool crisp enjoyable day.  During her runs I imagine Bear is fantasizing on the past ...

Of course we all know how the Dallas area beats the Heat!

OK, so I'm proud of our TEAM!
