This gas oven and stove from the old camper has really come in handy in this awful heat wave. It is just too hot to have all that heat in the house, so Ed parked this on the porch, and I cooked down the mulberries out on the porch! Thanks Mom and Dad for letting us take that old camper apart.
The heat wave is effecting everyone. These little Carolina Wren babies need some cooler air. This nest is on our front porch, and in the shade, but the 105 degrees we were having when I took this yesterday was just tooooooo hot!
Here comes momma, or maybe daddy. The parent birds never slowed down at all, even though they would pause after delivering their bugs and worms, and pant with their mouths open.
Hot Momma!
As soon as the parent left, they would try to cool off by sticking out of the nest as far as they could.

Hi Sharon, :)
Was that the little camper that Mom stayed in? That is such a great idea! The heat wave has finally broken here, for awhile at least. Really felt sorry for all the people without power for so long after that storm came through VA. It missed us, thank goodness!

Hi, Jeanie, this oven came out of a larger camper that Mom and Dad had sitting there. It sprung a roof leak and was not in good enough condition to use, so Ed took it apart and made a trailer with the frame. Recycling it?
