Time once again to link with Thea at A Snap, A Set and A Song for this week's theme of Heatwave. Stop by her site to see her take - and possibly join us with your own post.
Leave it to Thea to come up with a theme that I have to be creative to try and come up with a post. While she and her fellow Australians are complaining about 40° and above temperatures, we are looking at a forecast temperature of 47° here - quite a bit warmer than usual for this time of year. Of course, Thea's 40°C would be my 104°F ... and my 47°F would be her 8°C ... similar numbers - quite a different meaning!
A SnapSo since our winter would not produce any heatwave snaps, I reached back into the archives to one of the hottest days in my memory. That day was August 24, 2011 - my daughter's wedding. It was a Disney Fairytale Wedding held in Walt Disney World. For those of you not familiar with sub-tropical Florida in the summer, let me just say it was extremely hot and steamy ... even by Florida standards. Just have a look at my son's shirt (or my grandsons' hair)!
Don't let the tuxedos fool you - it was HOT!!!!
A SongNow I know that Thea was expecting me to use a different song, but the Broadway person in me decided to go with this number from Kiss Me Kate. (The song in the set is from the musical, Pajama Game - the first community theater show I ever did.)
But just for Thea ... is this what you were thinking? :-)
