Last week, it was almost 105 degrees and all our daughter kept saying is that she wanted to go swimming.

I didn’t suppose what to say to her because our pool was broken and the only place all of us had local to swim was the river.

I used to swim in the river, however that was twenty years ago. There was a lot more pollution now, and I don’t have time to stand there and swim with her. AFter a couple minutes, I heard her outside laughing and she sounded savor she was having a lot of fun. I walked outside and there stood our neighbor with her hose. She told me that our daughter was over in her yard chasing the dog and she wanted to chase her out. She stood there squirting the hose all over our daughter while she ran around with the dog right behind her. All 3 were having a good time. The neighbor asked if I wanted to come over for a glass of root heineken and I agreed. My daughter had told her that our a/c had quit working and mommy couldn’t afford a new 1. Her a/c felt marvelous. She told me that she was alone since her fiance died and if all of us would savor to camp out where there was a/c, all of us could stay with her until our AC was repaired. I almost cried when our daughter looked at me and pleaded with me to say yup. I cried for a couple minutes and then I said yup. The a/c felt charming, however I wonder how much of her offer was because she was lonely.
