Just think – only six short months from today, we’ll be celebrating New Year’s Day!
Half a year gone already.
When I mentioned this to my sixteen year old granddaughter, she looked at me – pierced eyebrows raised in bafflement – and said, “That can’t be. Summer hasn’t even started yet.”
“Ah, I know, darlin’,” I said, “but it doesn’t matter. Just hide and watch. After the fourth of July celebrations are over, back to school clothes will magically appear on the shelves in stores and don’t be surprised if pumpkins start to show up, too. Why, one TV station is even going to show some Christmas movies in a week or so."
She walked away shaking her head in disbelief.
I sat there chuckling and thinking about all my summer-lovin’ friends and family - and how they taunt me for months about their beach vacations and pool parties, knowing how much I hate hot weather.
Payback is not that far away!
