SPT "The Shade" my take

This weeks SPT topic is the third element of summer "shade". When I contemplated this topic the first thing that popped into my brain was a book. Eragon by Christopher Paolini. There is a character in this wonderful book (written by a 15 year old mind you) called "the Shade"his real name is Durza.
Do me a favor, read the book and stay far away from the movie.
It is just too hot to be outdoors period in Vegas. Even in the so called shade its still hot. Our "shade" here, the cooling shade, the escape from the heat kind of shade is simply an air conditioned indoor spot. Like the conservatory at the Bellagio.When I ponder shade in a Vegas summer, I think of curling up on the couch inside my air conditioned home with a great book, and a creepy character called "the Shade".
(sorry I had to use an old self portrait, I'm on vacation)

Mary - I am afraid to log on to your private acct... The email you sent me was an invite to help contribute to your blog. So the first time I didn't read that & after commenting & all that I went back to my blog & saw that your blog was now under my blog too & that I could do anything to your blog if wanted to. Of course I didn't. I figured out how to delete your blog off of mine & now I can't get on it at all.
It really freaked me out & I didn't know what to do!!! So I think you sent me the wrong invitation. I don't want to actually contribute to your blog. Do you get what I mean? Email me again...
