Time to Cut the Grass

Actually it's past time to cut the grass but the heat and the rain won't cooperate to get it cut. While we got a short light shower today the local weather man just said that it's moving toward the sea which means the rains that develop will last a bit longer. The bad news is that it's supposed to get hotter and the humidity will be bad. Tomorrow is supposed to be 97 degrees and the heat indexes this week are supposed to make it feel like 107. That means I have to be extra careful while I'm cutting the grass. I also get to watch gas prices for the best times to buy gas for the car and the lawnmower.

According to news reports tonight gas is supposed to go back up to $4 a gallon. That means I have to get some things in my yard that can be taken care of to cut down on the amount of grass to cut and provide us with a little bit of food.

Well, it's not raining at the moment and I have yard work to do before it gets dark. I have a lot to do in order to prepare for the kids at the first of next month and this is only half of it. I still have to figure out how to get my work done while they are here without staying up all night to get it done.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
