Fairfax, VA, USA. August sneaks up on July like a hungry wolf. The Nats in first place or close to it and soon I shall have another birthday — only 40 or 50 left to go. On the tooth front, one root canal down, another looming on the horizon. Whoopee!

If This Goes On ...


I don't know if we can survive
Another two years of aggressive passivity,
I suggest we all start learning Mandarin,
Russian and the Qu'ran in no particular order,
As long as we do it quickly.

Fairfax, VA, USA. The years seem to be speeding up.  Soon it will be 2016, then 2017 and we'll all be bitching about the new president we just elected.  God only knows what we'd do without a president.  The Religious right would probably try to establish a society run by preachers.  The Progressive left would probably set up something along the lines of a single party state with one of them at the top as beloved ruler.

We had better stick with presidents -- there's got to be a good one somewhere in the barrel.

Meanwhile, we are halfway through summer with August still ahead to torture Northern Virginity with even more extreme heat and humidity.

Water
Weighing heavier
Than the oxygen
In the sky
Soon falls to earth

Fairfax, VA, USA. We expect more of Summer than we do our presidents. Summer has a hit song, the president has a press secretary; Summer beats down relentlessly, the president clarifies his last statement — the summer may or may not be warmer or cooler than last year.

Fog, low clouds,
Birds still hunkering down,
Mama Cardinal out early
Demanding sunflowers
Before the squirrel arrives,
Dog waiting patiently
For the squirrel
