I love the summer…
It reminds me of the end of school, the pool, cars with the top down, wind blowing in my face, the sun, the fun and all those dreams. Hey, my business is strong in the winter and slow in summer. There’s too much else going on out there. Still I can’t help but enjoy those summer days and nights.
These past several weeks have been by far the hottest in our city that I can remember.
We must have had more than 20 or 30 days of 100 degrees or higher. All I could hear from people was, "Man, I can’t wait for it too cool off – this is awful – it’s too hot."
Well, in a few weeks you’ll get your wish. And God forbid, in a few months, it’ll be cloudy, there’ll be drizzle, snow – it’ll be hard to drive anywhere. Hard to see at night with snow pounding the windshield. Bitter cold out. Remember? Yep, we all do.
Then we’ll dream of those 100 degree days and wish they were back.
If you’re like me, around December, maybe even November, you start thinking, "Now where can I go that’s fast and cheap for some pool time and a tan?" Get me outta here! Boy, this weather sucks! I hate it. Why do I live here?
Happens every year. Every year we pine for that mild winter we got a few years back. Maybe, just maybe this one will be kind.
Summer. All those memories. Woodside. The new girlfriends who came and went. Hoping for the Royals. The Plaza still looking nice this time of year despite the kiddie riots. Outdoor concerts. Art fairs. Food festivals. I wish it was like this all year long.
I know this is a soft story. But if you’re like me, you’ve been thinking about this as well.
HATE TO SEE SUMMER END.
Just like George Brett used to say about baseball (and I think he meant summer in general). Just when we need it the most, its gone.
Enjoy the last couple weeks folks.
