    So is marble different somehow? Up climbing some of the hottest places are the boulder fields. They get like ovens. I’d guess the trees and other flora have more to do with it than the stone.

    One of my favorites…..and I did recognize these lines. When my Mom took me, she thought I was still too young for some of the racier lines, and I could sense her getting a little uncomfortable at this image….

    Marble and granite are good heat sinks. Like a cast iron skillet, it takes a long time to get it warm, and a long time to cool. Plants are more likely to cool because of transpiration.

    but under the trees in the cemetery, they might never get all that hot and would be cool early in the evening.
    And then there’s the other version of “cool” as in groovy.
    -
    Water makes a better heat sink, though, because changes in temperature can be moved elsewhere through convection

    I just finished reading the book for the first time,and was amazed at how much it differed from the film (which has always been one of my favorites).

    No the movie. B&W. CLASSIC. Oscar for Best Picture 1967.

    The coolest spot is wherever the cat sleeps. In winter it will be the warmest spot.

    Actually, it’s in color. But you’re right – an absolute classic. “They call me MISTER Tibbs.”

    And just to confuse the issue, that was the name of the sequel!

    You should see the movie. And the inconveniently placed window mullions.

    Or perhaps the 1965 novel by John Ball on which the classic movie was based.

    Strangest feeling we had – were exploring old cemeteries for family geneology. Late in the day, out in the country and this absolutely pure white cat shows up and starts stretching out on the headstones, moves to the granite slabs that cover the graves, follows us around. “Ghost cat”!
