It's Been A Lovely Summer

The weather people said this would be a mild summer and they nailed it. The last really hot weather was in April and, except for a few days maybe two weeks ago, that’s been about it. Other than that, things have been pleasant and enjoyable; I don’t know if we’ve had a season like this in a long time.

People will argue for and against global warming and one cool summer does not a theory destroy. But it does make people happy.

It was a perfectly lovely day today: the sun was out, the temps were fine, there were some puffy clouds in the sky. Birds were chirping, squirrels were crossing the street on telephone wires and the next street over was closed because of a gas leak in the Blue Cross building. Well, I guess you can’t have everything go right.

It’s a good day at the beach, except the beach is at least a two-hour drive away, minimum. It’s a good day just for the backyard, no cell phones allowed; pop whatever kind of cold drink you like, lay back in the hammock and chat with your family and any friends who might drop by. It’s summer.

Don’t put off enjoying the season. So the lawn needs cutting; it will still need it tomorrow and what’s one more day? You need a few things from the store? Many of them are open late at night, if not all night; the sun isn’t. Soon the earth’s tilt will bring cooler and colder weather. Take advantage of what you have now.
