If You Can’t Stand The Heat...

Today was hot and humid followed by thunderstorms. Not my best timing, but I needed to bake my triple chocolate brownies. We have another family wing-ding tomorrow. This one is being hosted by my nephew J.R. and his wife Lorrie. A few months ago, a friend of theirs passed away. As they greeted and reminisced with old friends at the wake, they decided to provide an opportunity for everyone in their lives to all come together, under happier circumstances, at a huge picnic. So rain or shine we’re headed to Rhode Island tomorrow. Fingers crossed the thunderstorms pass early in the day. And as long as I’m hoping, I’d love a cool, dry, breezy day! Greedy? Why yes I am!

Hi DMM -
Very good!
Lobstah or Lobstuh, said slowly, works quite well for Maine. Lobstah or Lobstuh, said quickly, works very well for Southern New England.

But I'm afraid all I have in my head for an Australian accent is Crocodile Dundee saying "Throw another shrimp on the barbie" - with a similar shortage of "Rs"! (Blush...)
Must work on that...

I can promise you I don't sound like Paul Hogan, Mr Brown does a terrible impression which I've forbidden him to practice.

Hi Fiona -
I explained all in Saturday's post-picnic post. Thanks for asking and for the good wishes! We did end up with heat and humidity, but that was far, far better than thunder and lightning!

Hi DMM -
So is Paul Hogan's accent as Crocodile Dundee compared to yours, sort of like a Cockney accent is compared to the Queen's accent?

I'm trying to gain a clearer understanding as well as banishing all misconceptions and stereotypes ASAP!
