Heat (1988)

(1988) Dry Bones cartoon: Heat, Summer.
Today is a special day. It's the Summer Solstice. And it's the official start of Summer. The season of heat!

This Golden Oldie was done 22 years ago. in 1988. Back then buses, cabs, restaurants, living-rooms and stores were not all air-conditioned. Back then we were grumpier. I believe that the two facts are connected. Sure we continue to remark on the heat, but we do it in uncomfortably cool surroundings.

The other day, when I suggested to the LSW (Long Suffering Wife) that we go out for dinner, she said "Wait, I'll get a shawl!" Sitting in an Israeli restaurant in a summer heat wave can be a chilling experience.
