Halfway into June, and we finally broke down and put on the house air-conditioner last night. …

By St. Louis standards, such a late start is pretty miraculous, and it's been a comparatively mild June. But after a week of temperatures in the high 80's to to 90's F and rising humidity to go with it, enough was enough. So for the first time in a few weeks, I actually slept under the bed covers rather than on top, and very pleasurable it was too! 🙂
