Animal’s Hump Day News

Happy Hump Day!

Thanks again to The Other McCain for the Rule Five links!

I hate hot weather.  And it’s a hot one this week.  Yesterday wasn’t that bad, but it’s going to be well into the nineties by the weekend.  Of all the reasons Mrs. Animal and I want to move up north to the Great Land, the cool summers are a big part of it.

Granted eastern Iowa where I grew up was worse than here in Colorado, having not only heat but also humidity.  And the winters were actually worse than the typical winters in Alaska near the ocean.  I’ve often said that there were two reasons I left the Midwest:  The summers, and the winters.  But in fact, I can handle cold weather better than hot weather.  You can always put more clothes on, but there is a limit to how much you can take off without upsetting the neighbors.

Anyhow; with that out of the way…

And So:

I don’t have any more deep thoughts or perspectives to share on this busy week, so instead, here is a representative of the better things about summer:

On that note, we return you to your Wednesday, already in progress.
