Amber’s Lament

Amber Heat 2 GoodYou’d think a fur coat would be good in Sweden. Not this summer! Like I’m barely surviving. I stay in my tree house most of the day and try to sleep through it. To make matters worse Bucks just told me the servants are thinking about getting a dog. A dog! Can you believe it? What possible reason could anyone have for wanting a dog? I mean, really. Bucks gets confused a lot of times, I’m hoping this is one of them.

      Thanks Myrah,
      It’s been cooler here this last week, but there is some chance of another heat wave.
      Sweden has never had a summer like this one, and last hear was the warmest in 50 years.
      Global warming?
