  1. The thin about Winter is that you can always put on more layers. There's only so naked I can get.

    1. And, during the summer, sleeping naked is something I'm not allowed to do. Which is just as well, I suppose. I gross even myself out.

    2. I sleep naked. I just don't look at myself, and the dogs don't care.

    1. But, at least there's bugs.
      Wait, that's not a good thing.

      I wish THAT would last forever.

  5. Heat has finally come to Oregon. It will probably reach 90 degrees today, hot for Portland.

    1. Reminded me of the first day I moved to Maine. It was going to get to 85 degrees and the locals were complaining that it was going to get "wicked hawt."
      I had to remind them that I had just come from Jacksonville, Florida and would need a sweater that evening.

  6. Poor, poor Stephen. Ninety degrees. Big deal.

    Love,
    Janie, who was not meant to live in Florida's heat

    1. One of the best lines I heard about Florida summer (specifically Miami): it's like walking around in a bundt cake.
      Related to my comment to Steve: it was July in Jacksonville just before we moved to Maine. O...M...G!!!!!! A bundt cake would have been pleasant.

  7. The winters in Australia and South Africa are warmer than spring in the American mid-west. There's no way you can beat those guys on climate - just be their bitch and go there for a holiday.

    1. I looked down at Robyn's comment and I most heartily concur: oh, I'll also be Australia's bitch. They have a lot of bad-ass snakes and the goofiest looking animal (no, not Gary Busey...the platypus), but I'd move there in a heartbeat.

  8. I wanna be Australia's bitch. In the meantime, I guess I'll just be a bitch in sunny California.

    1. But, then there's the earthquake thing. Or is that just a jealous Easterner stereotype?

    2. No, you're right, Al P. There's the earthquake thing. Or is that just Honey Boo Boo reaching for a corn dog?

      Delete
    3. We had an earthquake when we lived in Illinois. It was strange.

      Delete
    4. That is strange, Janie. Are you sure Honey Boo Boo and her family weren't visiting?

  9. I'm with Pat Hatt. Sorry no originality, but that's it in a nutshell.

    1. I'm with you being with Pat.
      Nutshell again.

  10. i have to say we've had a great summer here in Ohio. It's rained a lot, but usually during the week when I'm in my cubicle anyway. That is just fine with me!

  11. There really isn't any weather where I live. Eternally mild...
    A little rain every six months or so, would be nice.

  12. I would love to view weather reports with you stationed on your throne at the end of your driveway. The sound effects alone would be priceless.
