We had to get up at six am to go and perform a kids exchange at St Louis, a round trip of 460 miles.
Most of the trip was spent driving through a light mist. About 100 miles from Springfield the skies cleared and the sun shone, the car’s air conditioner was exercised, and once we got near home ice cream cones were bought.
Around town the road side temperature displays were reading 77°F (25°C), so as soon as the car was unloaded, I put on my shorts, dragged the cushions out of the shed and got some well earned rest in the garden.
