Re: closeouts/ now heat

I can relate Kitty.  Every weed known to mankind has grown to 6 inches 
tall in my gardens while I was away.  I sent hours this afternoon 
pruning and weeding, until I realize I was light headed, overly hot and 
had stopped sweating.  Soooo, went inside grand 1/2 liter of mineral 
water, got in a cold shower and then sat and ate salt and vinegar potato 
chips until I felt normal again..  Now I'm just tired.  Apparently it 
was 104 outside when I was working and I just didn't realize it.  Now 
wonder I nearly melted!
