The Dog Days of Summer

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

We're in the grip of a major heat wave here in Wisconsin - temperatures in the 90s and tons of humidity. Afternoons are real scorchers. My curtains stay drawn, the oven is off limits, and the grass isn't green anymore. So what to do?
I could go swimming in the community pool.

Or head for the Lake Michigan beach in Milwaukee. Or find a cool spot and just relax.

Maybe I'll hole up in the basement where it's cool and watch Dog Day Afternoon again. I loved that movie and Al is one hot hunk!

How about you? What do you do on a free dog day afternoon?
