Okay that's it. It's summer.

I don't care what the damn calender says. It's been in the Mid-eighties all week long, the forecast has called for a 25% chance of isolated afternoon thunderstorms since this time last week, and I just saw a damn firefly out in the front yard. If that ain't summer, "it'll harelip the pope". (40 points and a trip to the lightning round for anyone who can guess where I got that quote from.)

Since it's been so cussedly hot and humid lately, I've had to invest in several pairs of shorts. I'm normally not the type of guy who wears a lot of short pants due to...hell I'm not really sure why. I've always just worn jeans or khakies unless I'm at the lake. Weird but true.

I think it may have been a combination of working jobs like construction, rebuilding railroad bearings, and corporate number cruncher, along with the trainng I recieved for the proper attire for riding motorcycles. Work time requires long pants. Leisure time requires long pants. Why own any short pants? It's HOT that's why.

Last Thursday When I was sick, the heat was making things so much worse for me, so the thought ran through my head to get a pair of shorts. I wound up buying 3 pair that night mainly because they were only ten bucks a piece. I went through the first 3 and they were so comfortable that I went and got three more. I can't stop wearing the silly things.

What's next you say? I'm thinking of trying out a speedo.

I swear, I'm going to beat you with a stick until you find a way to get that image out of my head!

Yeah BS,

I really need to get my old "about me" post from my blogger site moved over here. As of yet, I don't have any pics to post. I'm trying to encourage all you kids out there to use your imagination. :)


This is merely payback for you making my picture of you include women's underwear. ("Comfort thing" my ass)

Well, in order for one to use their imagination, they must have some kind of something... to imagine, correct? so, you should at least put up your profile...

"it'll harelip the pope" - isn't that from the David Allan Coe song, "If That Ain't Country"???

Great tune. Good stuff :o) And I'm with you about wearing shorts. I avoid 'em whenever possible.
