I seem to have heard that one before. How to beat the heat? Reminds of another olde-tyme insult: 'Go Jump in a Lake'. Like this golden retriever. This was taken many years ago at my Aunt Terry's northern Minnesota lake house, at Big Stony Lake near Park Rapids.
The dog's name was Brandy, and a nicer pooch than you could imagine. You could throw that branch into the water fifty times, and the dog would retrieve it and drop it at your feet, for the fifty-first toss. Into the clearest, cleanest water anywhere you will find, the Land O'Lakes. The land of sky blue water. I feel cooler already.
