Summer's here

Usually, I take two prerequisites before announcing the arrival of Summer: Dead snake on the road, and somewhere visibly on fire. But this time? I'll accept being smacked in the face with the heat as soon as you step outside.

And speaking of smacks in the face... Went to all the trouble and through the last of my budget to provide my darlings with a different dinner. To whit: Trout and vegetable medley with hollandaise sauce. I usually knock it out of the park with the homemade hollandaise, but not this time.

Both little darlings turned their noses up at perfectly good veggies.

So I'm ropable about that.

And it's a cleaning day, which means I have even less time than usual to devote to today's content.

So I'm naturally more distractible than a kitten in a discotheque.
