I'm here sweating away. It's the worst heat wave I've ever seen or felt. It goes on and on. Everything that Al gore said would happen, is happening. I know there are the nay sayers. But, Hey, it's right in our faces everyday and in every corner of the world. At this point, it doesn't matter why it's happening, or who to blame. Now it should be how are we going to deal with all these changes. The changes, they are a coming. I saw a sad documentary about a pacific island that is disappearing. All the people have to evacuate. Only know one wants them. They have no where to go. Sure makes you think.
But, despite all this heat I've managed to create another memory jug. It is a big one and very heavy. It went together a lot better than the 1st one. I knew what i was doing this time around. I think I'm going to find a cork for it and put a time capsule inside. Who made it, when and what was going on at the time. Then I'm going to seal the whole cork and lip of the jug with wax. I do think it came out pretty good, I'm very happy with it.

Loving your Memory Jug! Especially the side with the Blessed Mother on it surrounded by the Horseshoe. One day I intend to try my hand at a Memory Jug... it's an Art Form I find Interesting and a great way to utilize Found Objects.

Yes, it's a Hot one this year, but then, in the Arizona Desert it's ALWAYS a Hot one & we're used to it! *LOL* But I do feel badly for those in States that are not used to extreme heat and perhaps don't even have air conditioning because it is abnormal for their climate to have a scorching heat wave.
