No rain .... darn. The gardens and lawns need the wet stuff. Instead we are getting hot humid weather again with highs in the high 30's. YUCK.


I will deal with it ... I have beer and a couple of large boxes of ice freezies! BRING IT ON!

Rainy today, a little cooler but HOOMID. I hate hoomidity. So does Banana, I think I will set her up with a bathtub full of green leafy things to splash in and have a little cool down.



Stay cool ... wherever you may be!

Long weekends are exhausting. Beer and BBQ's and Wine and chit chat rinse and repeat ..... exhausting.


Banana is pooped from all that talking and schmoozing and drinking and dancing ... me too.

Rain.... rain rain rain and thunder and lightening and more rain. We need it as its been sunny and hot and there hasn't been much wet stuff for the gardens and lawns. Lordy knows we need nice green grass.

The rain poured down in torrents yesterday and flooded all sorts of area's here ... I wondered who I should call to make a reservation for the ark. I don't think they will allow Banana to join me on the big ship of 2 by 2 critters. She is too loud and evil and bad and there isn't another budgie that would be brave enough to want to mate with this yellow mouth piece.

Stay dry ... where ever you may be.

There is a guy outside wearing his winter coat and hat ..... its a little cool here today. Bright and sunny with awesome blue sky's full of white puffy clouds but a little cool. It's one of those days when you can throw open the windows and enjoy the comfortable breeze and just CHILL out.

I like it! I like it a lot. I'm gonna chill out and enjoy the beautiful day. I hope you do too.

In 2 days the Canadian National Exhibition will be up and running in Toronto. It always brings cooler nights signalling the end of summer is near. People are shopping back to school supply's and new clothes for the kids and we will soon have FROST on the pumpkin. I don't know what that means but that's okay .... I'm too sad that summer will be coming to a close soon.


In the meantime I will enjoy the humidity and sunshine and bright days that soon get dark by 8:30pm each night.



Summa is ova.

I remember going to the CNE as a child, in the early '60s -- I loved the kiddie rides, the duck pond game, candy floss and seeing Kewpie Dolls on a stick. When I went to the Commercial Exhibition Hall -- I was greeted by Speedy the Alka-Seltzer boy (a large recognizable statue) and was amazed with the colorful introduction of Origami -- Japanese Paper Folding -- which would still capture my interest as a student in middle school.



Our weather has been warm, but we have several types of fans (window and floor-standing oscillating fans) to make sleeping at night tolerable.



I once tried to grow pumpkins -- but they crossed on their own with zucchini squash -- so they ended up being small, orange, rather oval-looking pumpkins that would make better pies than jack-o-lanterns.

Interesting the things you recall from your earlier years at the CNE .... a few friends had told me they had some fond memory's of the EX as well. They said they all received a FREE Entry ticket in their report card at the end of the school year which was fun. They recalled the many free yummy samples that were given out at the Food Building ... you could eat all day and not need to buy any snacks just due to the many samples.


There use to be animals like Lions and other exotics on display ... the rides were the biggest attractions. I heard that people played BINGO and won a plastic bag with a live guppy in it. LOL


It was far more extravagant then the EX of today ....

After posting my last comment, I was reminiscing with J. about the goldfish you could win by tossing dimes into glass bowls and stemware, and if your dime connected with the glassware filled with a live swimming goldfish, you were graced with the opportunity to take your gold carp home in a clear baggie. I am rather glad that this practice is no longer popular in today's carnivals and county fairs -- just think about how many fish were sacrificed for the fun of a carnival game.

Rain Rain Rain and more rain..... possibly hail. We are due for a pile of the wet stuff today with lots of thunder and lightning. I think I might crawl back into bed and sleep the crummy day away. That is if Banana will let me ... she will scream and demand attention crappy weather or NOT!

Ever get woken out of a dead sleep because something flashes in your room? NO ... not a camera. There was no peeping Tom. It was lightning.

EPIC LIGHTNING! It flashed on the walls and furniture despite the drapes closed tight and the room in pitch blackness so it was odd to me. I wasn't sure what to think but I staggered out of bed threw back the drapes and crawled back to bed to watch an amazing light show flash across the sky for 45 mins before the deluge hit ..... AND what a deluge!


There was no sleeping after that .... so today I am POOPED! It's bright an sunny and everything is wet and soggy looking still with more rain suppose to come this afternoon. Oh well ... it's better then snow.

That's right SNOW.


It snowed in Canada in Northern British Columbia .... heh heh ... summa is DONE!

I just saw this post again and noticed this Kewpie Doll is not wearing pants.


HOW NAUGHTY!


I guess things were a little more lax back in the 60's 70's?

I love late August ... summer is winding down but its still hot. You can sit in the sun and enjoy the heat or walk over to a shady spot 3 feet away and enjoy the cool as well. It's bright and sunny but comfortable to wander around and not be dripping in sweat. Night time is cool enough for a sweater or sitting outside and enjoying bug free time.



Everything has reached its peak of deep dark green and subtle signs of autumn are just a little more obvious. SIGH ...
