Say, what?


Monday, August 07, 2006


There's something about the month of August.

I always get that "life is good" feeling this time of year.

Could be because it's the heart of the summer and I love summer, no matter how hot it gets.

Or it could be because it's my birthday month, and birthdays are always fun no matter how many you survive.

Whatever, I love that slow, easy pace of summer and hanging out with those who know everything about you and love you anyway.

So, how's summer treating you?

I'm not telling, but I'll give you a hint ... I think I was about 19 or 20 when I took care of you and Tommy when Dad and your mom went away on vaction. Tommy was a baby.

Just FYI to readers, lil sis is from my father's second (or is it third?) family. Dad was difficult to keep up with.

If my math is correct, you are still a kid.

As a fellow Leo, I wish you a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY"

Hope to see you one of these days with our mutual party animals.

Happy Birthday to you, too, Leo! Did you catch that 29-year-old yet?
80Lady and inquiring minds want to know. Where are the party animals anyway?

Happy Birtday Diana, You have a nice month to celebrate. My birthday is the day after Christmas and no I dont get cheated. I made it clear years ago, 2 different occassions.

As for the summer, my job involves getting the schools ready by September (markerboards, proj. screens, display cases, etc) So needless to say I have been very busy and tired.

Happy BD to you Di. I share dmc's birhtday, same year, and almost down to the minute. I love summer- no schedules ( until pop warner kicks in), a sandwich makes a fine dinner, and what about those Jersey beaches?

Hi Diana,
I LOVE summer. Even tho I'm now a sr citizen, I enjoy knowing that school is out, lakes & pools are open, the beach is waiting, the outdoor concerts are on, the crickets & katydids serenade us every night, the butterflies, bees, hummingbirds & dragonflies perform for us daily, how cool is that? Entertaining is easy, bar-b-ques are fun, & friends & family come to visit while the weather is so great. We live on our porch, nice & comfy, & away from the pesky mosquitoes at night. What's not to like?

I read the APP on-line every day and today was the first time that I read your blog.
I like your pictures and your sense of humor. I know what you are going through with cleaning people. Went through a few of them while working full-time. Now I do my own cleaning and well...absolutely hate it. ;-)
Since you like Photography, I thought, that you might enjoy picture I took in the last 7 weeks, while driving 'once around the country'.
Happy Birthday!
