We are experiencing some serious dog days around central Connecticut. Temps in the upper 90s and no rain, save for the occasional short violent thunderstorm. We’re watering things outside the garden, and we never water things outside the garden. We’re taking Maddie for walks earlier and earlier each day. We’re bumping into the point where she hasn’t yet…well, you know, the thing we would rather she not do while walking.
Some of you mentioned that I made you think on Saturday. Sorry about that. If I try to make you think, it’s usually on a Monday. Fair’s fair, I’ll give you today off. Some photos to look at. Gathered while Maddie and I walked early Sunday morning.
Sorry, these are just plain photos, no augmentation (1) today. All I have is the bare bones reality that Mother Nature and people, for good and not-so-good have added. Some people are trying to make it better. Clearly, some people don’t give rat’s a** about anything other than they’re convenience. I also included attempts to capture interesting images. Some were successful and some were not. Oh well, something for me to learn.
I wanted to include some background music. Believe it or not, I had a problem with some of the classic summertime songs. More about that later. I chose The Allman Brothers Band – “Blue Sky” from “Eat A Peach” which was released early in 1972. I hope you enjoy the gallery.
(1) I’m still on a bit of a roll from one of the topics that crept into that SoCS post.
(2) As the week rolls on, I will be spending some time preparing for and administering the Cherished Blogfest. My regular reading / writing habits might get interrupted. There is still plenty of time to join us. Choose a cherished object, tell us why it means so much to you and publish it anytime between early Friday and late Saturday. You can let us know you’re coming by signing-up here. But, if you want to just jump in with your post, the official list will be active Midnight, (GMT) on Friday.
