About time. June has been terrible here. Temperatures sometimes struggling to get above 8°C, gales and driving rain. In fact, typical Scottish summer. 😉

@fitheach I feel like I need to visit Scotland in the summer.

This 90+ degree (30+ C) high humidity crap I suffer through every year is for the birds, man.

@erikstl
It's probably the high humidity that is the real problem. I used to always recommend May & September as the months to visit the Highlands. It is usually cool, but dry (drier) then.

Housebound?
Are you not well or something else?

@fitheach Sprained 1 ankle quite badly on the 14th. It still looks like a large sausage with little toes. Crutches
5 x-rays say not broken anywhere and two different doctors in A&E last sunday say they could see no break and marvelled at how good I'd "banged it up".
I just have to be real nice to it and wait it out apparently.
Of course, when monday came the effects of a triage nurse, two docs and an x-ray tech poking and prodding made themselves known - put me back days worth of pain/swelling.

@gemlog
Sorry to hear that.
What does the other guy look like?

@fitheach I'd like to say I did it "leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia" youtube.com/watch?v=BxsQ9vESX0 ,but... I tripped on the apples and pears :-(

@gemlog
Each time you tell the story you can embellish it a little.

I once went to a fancy dress party as a Mountie. The intention was a re-working of the old idiom:
"The Mountie always gets his woman"
