Ain’t got hot yet,

But damned if it ain’t shticky,

Up is the damnable humidity,

Tomorrow the oven is cranked up,

Near a hundred the next two days,

Gotsta work, have ta live,

My brain of late a draining sieve…J


We’ve had good temps of late,

So I guess the heat is our karmic fate,

It is afterall summer time,

What can one do, we’ll all be cooked,

Just like steak of the variety prime…J


So I hope you do stay cool,

Sit and enjoy your backyard kiddie pool,

I have a sewer tank in my yard,

But with my life I do of it guard,

Full as it is with so many a stool…J

I try to get a little sun every day. Kiddie pools are not for me. I think you could have left the the last three lines off. Your poem would've been much more enjoyable.

WOW - no wonder that old Cuz Cur calls you a 'Stool Pigeon.' Ma says it sounds like you're a 'Stool Hoarder!'

Still too cool up here in Nova Scotia for swimming but I may just have to convert my old truck to one of them fancy mobile swimming pools in the picture.

Sorry to have to tell you, but we have had a pleasant, mostly cool June down here in the swamp, with wonderful afternoon showers for the last couple of weeks. Starting to heat up some though. Stools, eh? Toadstools?
