LAZY DAYS OF SUMMER
Also known as the Dog Days Of Summer in these parts. By early afternoon all activity is usually halted . Everyone, including the Dogs, are laid up in the shade. Hundred degree temps take a toll unless one practices this ritual. Late afternoon, when the shadows start to get long, Man and Beast again will begin to stir. Canoes will be uprighted and easily slid into the water where paddlers of all ages will once again become active after their long midday break from the heat. Laughter comes easy. We all know that the best time of day, from now until after dark is before us. Taught by generations before us, we know how to survive the Dog Days!
