Well the group would retaliate in the same fashion and soon it was all out warfare. The temperature was between 95'-100'F so it was all in good fun and a great way to cool off. As I never found a hat, my shoulders and neck were being ravaged by the sun. I got out of there and went and stood in some nearby shade. It was starting to get very uncomfortable, ...
