This Is . . . the South

Building a fence in 98-degree heat (I'm guessing; one thermometer claimed it was 105) isn't so bad, in retrospect.

As long as while you're retrospecting you're sipping an ice-cold Pimm's Cup in air-conditioned comfort as the baby and the dogs sleep peacefully and the sun goes down.

Pimm's Cup: I don't know if this is authentic, but this is how I did mine this evening. Fill a chilled glass with ice cubes, add 2 or 3 ounces Pimm's No. 1 and a lemon slice, stir, fill the glass with Sprite, stir gently, garnish with a cucumber slice. Certainly it shouldn't be in an old fashioned glass, as here, but rather in a Collins glass.

I'd never heard of Pimm's before--sounds delicious--a nice balm for the heat and humidity. Fence is looking great!

Hi Liana!!!!! Pimm's did me in at my mom's wdding. It tasted so good I didn't realize I was drunk until I was put to bed by my grandmother shortly after dinner. I think it had cucumbers in it. . .
