Summertime, and the Livin' is Easy. Sometimes.
If Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of Summer, then we're off and running. It sure felt like a Summer weekend around here, with open windows, shorts, flip-flops, temps in the 80s, and outdoor cooking. Apparently, everybody in the neighborhood had the same idea about cooking out; my house smelled like smoke and charcoaled meat all weekend. Shorts, of course, meant leg shaving -- and I have a war wound to prove it. I guess when you have knobby knees and ankle bones, it's inevitable that you're going to draw blood.
My dog has had her Summer haircut and I think she's pleased about feeling sleek and air conditioned, not to mention cute. I see her lolling about with a big goofy dog grin on her face. I guess next she'll want me to get her some eunuchs with feather fans and grapes.
There was, thank God, no bad weather around here over the long weekend. I feel so badly for all the people out west who've been hit so hard by tornadoes.
I'm back to work today; three-day week because of the Monday holiday. That ain't too shabby.
I could talk (for hours, probably) about how things are never easy (except that they really are as long as you use the right approach), or how things are never what they appear (except that they're usually exactly what they seem to be if you're looking at them correctly), or how there's no free lunch and you never get something for nothing (except when you luck out on rare occasions and do just that), but I don't feel like it.
Instead, let's just play with some Words Gone Wild. I've got some of them; you get the rest, please.
I hat that to - Someone who raised his hat in praise of something or other.
