A nice way to cool off during these hot temperatures is to….well…

wallow in a mud hole of course!

Just splash it on your belly.

And lay down in it so that you get covered from head to toe.

Make sure, though, that it tastes good enough to be rolling around in.

Do some stretches to strengthen your neck muscles and scratch that itch.

Then make your way to the sunshine to dry off.

If you follow these easy steps, you’ll find it’s a surefire way to beat the late summer heat.

    Just like my dog Willow. Except her roll of choice is decaying armadillo. :-\
    Thanks for the almost daily diversions. 😉

      Thank you! Yes, they were so cool to just sit and watch. I love watching them run. They hold their noses up high with the antlers almost resting on their backs. Too cool.
