Questions about rain

15 Aug

After a long dry spell it finally rained.
This is wonderful for the grass. For the tomatoes in the garden. For the weeds that I have to pull out.
But the cliché of freshness after the rain eludes me.
It is hot.
And sticky.
Rather miserable as everything is damp and humid.
When will the rain come to rid us of the humidity?

Summer TV

11 Jun

I was reading the news on the Internet, like I usually do, when a brash headline struck me.

“20 TV Shows Not To Miss This Summer”

Really. Somehow I don’t equate summer and TV watching. It is not that I don’t watch TV in the summer. I do. I just don’t organize my daily/weekly schedule around the TV schedule in the summer. I don’t do this in the fall, winter or spring either.
I was attempting to counter this headline with a short blurb titled — “20 reasons not to watch TV this summer.” But I was struggling.
I could only come up with one.

It’s summer. Go outside.
