The sun kisses ...

Philip is a great place to live. The people are friendly and outgoing, life is enjoyable, and most day-to-day activities are relatively safer than in other places. The loudest “gang” is the men’s golf club. Philip’s motto is “Where the sun kisses the earth.” It makes you think of being at one with the land and nature. It is somewhat romantic. Life here “doesn’t have a cloud in the sky.”

This year, at least, that is a problem. We’ve already had several days in a row of over 100 degree weather. Rainfall seems to be rudely passing us by.
