Birds Do It

August 29, 2016

This has to be

One of the hottest summers

We have had in a long time

 

Believe me

I love the beach….

 

So I’m not complaining

 

As of this past weekend

We have had…

3 prolonged heat waves

 

I recently saw a posting

 

July….

Was the hottest July

Since they began keeping records

 

I am sure we’ll see

That August

Will also be in the running

 

The heat has been brutal for my garden

 

Only a few cherry tomatoes

No regular tomatoes

And not 1 pepper

 

Normally, I am giving away

Tons of tomatoes and peppers

 

This year….

I can’t even trim a salad

 

For those battling this heat

There is good news

 

The heat will be ending

 

I walked to my kitchen window

At the shore this weekend

 

And….

 

Saw a string of birds

Starting to line up

On the telephone line

Across the street.

 

Each year

This has been a tell-tale sign

That the weather is changing…

 

And fall is on the way.

 

How do they know?

 

Just like clockwork

The temperatures

Will start to cool down.

 

My wife, Janet

Was the first to notice this phenomena…

A couple of years ago

 

Apparently….

 She spends more time

 At the kitchen sink

 Than I do

 

The birds must be in tune

With the weather

 

And they have never

Been wrong

 

It is sad

That summer is coming to an end

 

We find ourselves

Talking about it

Thru out the year

 

And then….

Puff….

 

Another one slides by

 

Hope you enjoyed your summer

 

Happy Labor Day

 

Every Day is a Gift

 

Thank you for your referrals

 

 

We’ll do it again real soon

My Pop used to say…

4th of July

Summer’s over

Those were always the hardest words to hear

After all,

We had just got out of school

I thought we had

The whole summer

Ahead of us

Roll out those

Lazy…crazy… hazy…

Days of summer

Head to the shore…

Hit the beach…

Where we become ….

One with the sun

Summer Over?

We’re just getting started!!!

You can still see

The summer excitement…

Just try

Scheduling a meeting

Once the summer begins?

Well, I’m going on vacation

In 3 weeks

I have a lot of things

On my desk

I have to get done…

Before I go

How about

Giving me a call

After Labor Day

Labor Day!!!!!!

What happened to all of August?

Hmmmmmm!

Ain’t no cure for….

The summertime blues

Enjoy the summer

We have been waiting for you

If I do call you….

To schedule an appointment

Maybe we can get together

Sometime in August

Cameron came back off vacation

 

 

 

Congress and Obama have spent the last month

 

Battling over the debt ceiling

 

 

 

Each claiming they are sticking to their guns

 

“We must fight to protect the middle class”

 

 

Well….

 

They came up with the grand compromise

 

 

 

And quickly left for vacation
