|Mighty morning shade pole|
I was telling Magnum last night that I would love to have some sort of crossing guard shelter. I'm not picky. A decent duck blind would do for those moments between walking back and forth across the hot pavement. The afternoon shift lasts for a good nearly 20 minutes!
In the meantime, I just do the best with what I've got lest I start licking myself like a kangaroo. And what I've got is a pole.
Better than nothing I suppose.
While early September isn't necessarily that much different from late August, it just sounds better. Go ahead, say it: Sep*TEM*berrrrrrr. It just sounds much cooler than hot AUGH!*ust. I welcome the end of August and the start of September.
I've signed up for another month of daily blogging. September's theme is "eye" and looks like the Blogher people are putting together some introspective prompts. As they say, "We're going to be exploring eyes as the window to the soul, think about how we build memories and access them later, and delve into our Wordsworthian "inward eye."'
Good-bye August. We had some fun times, yes we did, with your hot, uninhibited nature. But we both knew this wasn't meant to be a long-term relationship. So a toast to September: here's mud in your eye!
