I guess to simply keep our house cool for my family because summer heat is bad on diabetics. My wife , and I or diabetics, and our only daughter can not walk so we have no plans for any canoe rides down any park streams although they would be fun.
We like good times, but we take the slow lanes on everything. For the summer I like to make cold brew ice tea, and to cook in a cool house. One important thing: Everyone should keep a portable fan that runs on flash light batteries at the very least, if a heat storm knocks out electricity for a few hours. A little fan can be very helpful. I know for a fact.
God Bless you my friend. Be happy , and safe for the summer. GBY.
