July...who needs it...
Some people just can't get enough summertime, but I am NOT one of them. I am never sorry to see the last of July; I could only be happier if August didn't follow. The end of July means we are halfway through the hottest part of the year and that much closer to Autumn ~ my far and away, no-contest, absolute favorite season.
This July has been particularly unpleasant: It is my first month M-less after 20+ years of daily doses. That is enough right there for a total writeoff, but on top of that, we have had 100+ temperatures with humidity to match, to say nothing of NO rain the whole month. Even Hurricane Dolly turned out to be nothing more than an overblown threat with barely a mist to its credit.
Tonight is July's last possible chance to redeem itself, and we are being subjected to a real, honest-to-goodness thunderstorm. But wouldn't you know, that's all it is: a generous lot of pompous bombast. No rain, no substance.
So, goodbye, July. For M, one more reason to cheer your passing: one month down, 46 to go...
