I know SO many people who love winter. Fine. Go ahead. I like the sun. I like the heat. I like having the option of going into the backyard naked without shrinkage. I DON'T go into the backyard naked, but there IS that option. I like to keep options open. That's the way I am. I like flowers and I like the birds that show up in bright plumage looking for a mate. I like the vegetables in the garden and I like long summer nights and sitting in a lawn chair reading a book listening to the sounds of summer.
Yes, there are the neighbors' dogs that seem to get my dogs blamed for barking. Sure there are a few parents that let their kids roam free after dark. Sure there are people who mow their lawns 17 times a week...so what? I love summer.
I got a slight sunburn the other day...I was working in the backyard under the tree and painting that sign...I did not wear a shirt...I must have strayed from the shade a might too often and ended up with a semi-pleasant burning across my shoulders and upper back. Ahhh, summer.
I am looking forward to my crop of tomatoes, which seem to be taking their sweet time getting here...
I continue to work with a bunch of poorly trained baboons. But, what are you going to do? At least they manage to grunt an English word once in awhile.
I don't mind. It's summer time and the living...well, it's nice.
