The mall is packed.
Swimming lessons need a driver
(kids can’t get anywhere by themselves, after all).
Joggers sweating past.
Gas mower chugs obnoxiously around the yard.
I miss the soft swisha-swisha of dad’s old Rotary mower
when summer was gentler
and filled with children’s laughter.
“when summer was gentler”
Thank you, Jack!
You are welcome.
It seems the whole continent is sizzling.
It was 33 Celsius (91.4F) today. It was also steamy (for us) because there’s a storm brewing. We’re expecting rain tonight.
