Happy Longest Day of the Year!

 And it'll be a hot one for much of the country.  Time to search out movies about blizzards and being stuck in a cabin in the mountains without electricity.  Here in California it is the summer time overwhelmed power grid that causes a lack of electricity.  With temperatures in the 100s today, hubby and I will be spending a good portion of it on our pool rafts under umbrellas ... reading, napping, snacking.  And hoping it's not our turn to lose power overnight!

I'd choose Petticoat Fever (1936) as an attempt to cool me off.  Of course there was the complaint on the set that the stars were attired in too realistic outerwear.  Bob and Myrna were soaked through in their fur coats and mukluks.  But they suffered through it, with not a clue of their discomfort.

Well, there is one slight thing the makeup people missed ... note the wet curls of hair sticking out under the top of Bob's furs.  Yeah, a bit on the hot side.
