It's starting to feel like summer here in Louisiana. It's been dry for about the past 10 days with no rain in the forecast. Currently , it's a balmy 90F outside with a wind chill of 102. Humidity is at 43%, which ain't bad for right now. It's not hot yet in Louisiana, but it is definitely on preheat mode.
I grew up drinking Coca-Cola, when I could get it. Nowadays I still drink Coke. Whether out of a bottle or can matters not. If I'm burning down the road, I'll drink it straight from the can, but if I am at home, where I can savor, my preference is to take it in a glass over ice. If it's late afternoon and the driving is done for the day, if someone splashes a little bourbon in the bottom of the glass, that's okay too.
We were talking the other day, and when we were growing up, the very idea of bottled water was alien to us. There was a gas station near where I grew up, and they kept a water hose on the side of the building. The owner would let us kids drink from the hose, and I've drank gallons from a water hose. If the hose has been laying under the sun, it's best to let it run for a bit, until the water cools off. When you've been biking hard all day, it sure was nice to swing by the gas station, get a big swig of water and let the hose run over your head for a minute to cool off.
