Dog Days of Summer!

Ever wonder where this phrase came from?
Well...if so, you're in's a fun Friday fact for you...
"Dog days" are referred to as the hottest, most sultry days of summer.
(Thank you Wikipedia)
The name comes from the ancient belief that Sirius, also called the Dog Star, was somehow responsible for the hot weather.
Well, I'm real "Sirius" when I say that I'm pretty darn tired of the scorching heat we've been blessed with lately.
Don't you think that ("feels like") 100*F should somehow be illegal?
I know. Not possible. But still!
It's H.O.T.!
Happy Weekend Bloggers!
Stay C.O.O.L!
