Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime

In the good old summertime, I am sitting inside in the nice air conditioned rooms. The air temp (Sunday) is 95. Heat index is 102. I am not going outside unless I have to.

I am not quite ready for ¬†Fall yet, and certainly not for Winter, but some more moderate Summer days would be nice. The Summer Sale promotion at … Continue reading Monday Musings: Another Month Bites the Dust, and Some Writerly Musings
