Hello, it’s been a while….

Suddenly it’s summer! I am partial to silliness; not so very far from John Cleese’s style. To get back into business on my humble blog, here is a poem:


I do not wait with bated breath for summer;

For me it can be something of a bummer!

The warmth is lovely but the heat is hellish,

The humidex is something I don’t relish!

When winter ends we’re all so very happy,

But allergies soon make me feel plain crappy!

The weather may be perfect but it beats me;

The sudden change from cold to hot defeats me!

The world is just so quiet when it’s snowing,

Then summer comes and all the lawns need mowing,

Of course, the work is done with power mowers

And then our ears are treated to leaf blowers!

We do enjoy the cool night air for sleeping,

But when the skunks go by we feel like weeping!

The bird songs all around are really pretty,

But the splatters on my car are not confetti!

One must admit it’s nice to dress so lightly,

But then we see too much that is unsightly!

We’re wearing clothes to suit the summer breezes,

Then sit in restaurants that are deep-freezes!

While summer has its moments, it’s too crazy,

I feel a lot more sane when fall gets hazy!
