Indian Summer Pool Party!!

Go get the Rubbermaids and start digging for those summer flip flops you just put away, this lovely 80 degree weather in mid- October is giving me the itch and a hankerin' for a pool party!

I know the itch is really from the poison ivy my family is currently enduring, but just what exactly is a "hankerin'???" Could be one of those Foxism's that only my Dad could explain... Sis- any input on that, as well as homeopathic remedies for that itch?

Anyway, I think maybe we could gather and sip smoothies poolside in a week or so, but I'll have to keep you posted on that one.

Poison Ivy Relief: Jewel Weed. We have it in soap form, spray and cream. The health food store should carry it.

"Hankerin'" is not a Foxism, but a real word(though used mostly in the South). It's even in the dictionary, a derivative from the Flemish language meaning, "to desire strongly or persistently."

A pool party? Germany, too, is enjoying a very mild fall--mid 50's most every day and mostly sunny weather. Today is an exception and the the boys are having to rake leaves in the foggy mist. Brent says it has cooled off in Qatar--upper 70's in the middle of the night and hovering the the 90's around noon.

Blessings! Sandy
