Follow the Falling Fat Guys

The roofing crew down the street started before 6AM.

Roofing’s hard work any time of the year.  That’s why you only see skinny, wiry guys doing this type of work.

Could you imagine what a hazard it would be, if old, heavy-set guys, like myself, tried roofing in this summer heat?  Fat guys falling off roofs everywhere–into the shrubbery.  I did blister my knees once, cleaning out the gutters.

Umbrella Days

“Since rain seems to be topic of the day around here–a beautiful image, and thoughts from last summer.”

A squash blossom

Resembled an umbrella

The color of bright sunshine

Crafted from finest silk

To repel drops of rain

From sudden summer showers

On pleasant walks in the park
