Penny is lying on the hot kitchen floor, tired out but not sleeping because it is over 30 degrees in the house at 1:30 am on the first day of the year. I think that would be somewhere near 90 degrees fahrenheit.
I've cooled her down with a wet towel on her stomach, but she keeps wandering around looking for a new spot to doze.
However, I feel sure she would join me in wishing everyone, canine and human, a great start to the new year and lots of good times in 2008.
(If tonight is global warming in action, I don't look forward to the coming summers. Let's hope we can all work together to keep our one and only world in good shape for the future.)
