Posted on 09/12/2005 6:10:48 AM PDT by Maximus of Texas
List your two favorite and your two least favorite months and why.
1. October - Football is hitting high gear. Baseball and the Fall Classic. Nip in the air. Great colors
2. December - Christmas. 'Nuff said.
1. August - Hot and no rain. It just sucks here in Texas during August
2. February- No football. No baseball. Weather usually sucks.
December and January bite the big one, no racing.
The rest of the year is OK by me.
October and August: August is my birthday month and October has all 4 major sports going at the same time to include college football....
February and March:
I seem to ALWAYS get the flu in February and March kicks off allergy season for me....
Mid-April to Mid-June... more daylight; blossoms, blooms, leaves appearing; not too much cold, heat, or humidity.
Least Favorites: March and August. March because by that time I'm sick of winter, and August because by that time I'm sick of summer!
If your wife sees that post, someone is going to get a steak dinner tonight!
Most loved--October. Crisp. Apples. The haze on the mountains turns to crystal. Planting johnny-jumpups, which bloom until the first summer's heat.
Second favorite--May, when the laurel blooms.
Looks like everyone hates poor August...die she must! (Simon and Garfunkle)...but I like the birthstone--a perfect apple-green peridot.
Grey Whiskers posted this Ode to September yesterday. I thought it was a great post that got little attention.
Least favorites: Michael Moore and Hillary Clinton.
Most liked: Ann Coulter and Dennis Prager.
Oh,...months. Sorry I musta been thinking of something else.
May - Weather finally getting warm, sun starting to be out more often than not
September - Great weather, good air, football
Least favorite -
February - getting tired of winter by then, nothing going on
I have a love/hate with August. I hate it because by month end it's evident that summer's just about over here! Shorter days and nights getting cooler. But at the same time I'm sick of humidity by then so it's refreshing at the same time.
And my birthday is in August.
My favorites are:
May, because I love spring storms.
October, because I love Halloween and the changing seasons of summer into fall.
January, long, cold and brown.
August, long, hot and brown.
October - fall is in the air and bow hunting season starts.
Any other month from November to March.
June - September.
October-I love the smell of Fall and the cool crisp evenings.
May-I'm so sick of winter and rain that May always feels good to me!
February-I'm usually getting real sick of winter at this point.
August-I'm usually getting read sick of summer at this point!
It's all about the weather!! :o)
August is getting beat up pretty bad by everyone. Based on that I will introduce legislation to remover the month from our calendar.
Favorites: March, The O-State Cowboys win another national title in wrestling (33 and counting), and that of course means the season is over.
April- all the college girls start going to school in shorts and tank tops again.
Least Favorite: July: 1000 kids at camp for crappy wages plus summer school. Oh and its 100+ every day.
Dec./Jan.- In Stillwater with nothing to do. The town is seriously a ghost town during Christmas break.
Favorites = October. I love the crisp air and the beautiful colors. : )
I also love March, new life, and cool enough to get some work done.
Least favorites are February, it always rains, is muddy and I'm another year older! LOL
Also August, hot and humid.
post 20 should have been to you too! : )
April: Spring is here and I can start digging in the yard again, plus all my fall work starts to show.
October: It's cool again, and yes, I can start digging in the yard.
December: Christmas, I love the holiday, but dang, I get so depressed!
July and August: Lets see, we had 107 to 110 degree heat indexes these months. Everything gets scorched, including me. Enough said.
Fav: June, trees and plant are in bloom. The warm season is young and full of promise.
Least fav: April, specifically the 15th, when the full scope of the robbery that is called income tax comes into view.
"June, trees and plant are in bloom. The warm season is young and full of promise."
You must live up north. In Texas by June we're heavy into summer we're getting our last rain for the summer.
Everybody's birthday is in August! Maybe that means everybody's favorite month is really December? (g)
Ok, you're really trying to get on my good side, ainthca? Telling me about all that rain and driving around in that King Ranch F150. I hope your mower throws a rock into the side of your truck and that you get serious allergy attacks!
October - lovely weather, nice foilage, football, Mr sassbox's birthday, and Halloween.
December - first snowfall usually and, of course, Christmas!
March - still cold and wintry, but rarely snows. Instead all you get to look at are bare trees and dead brown grass. I can deal with cold as long as there's some attractive snow. I can't deal with March.
August - too freaking hot and humid, yet nonetheless school starts. No good holidays in this month either.
Favorites: October (birthday, the smell of Autumn, cool weather); May (anniversary, warmer and drier weather).
Least Favorites: February (we usually get ice storms); April (too rainy).
The "no holiday" thing with August is a good point. I think its the only month that doesn't have a holiday. Maybe we need to add one.
What? I can't hear you.
October: sweater weather, chili weather, great coffee weather, leaves are pretty
May: Tank top weather, gardening weather, open the pool weather, my yard looks pretty
Two least favorites:
January: I. . . hate . . .winter. Period.
February: I really, really hate, and I mean hate, winter.
So relocating to Minnesota isn't in your future?
November, December. Deer season.
July, August. Too dang hot.
Hey, come and spend Christmas with us! It's fun around here.
Guilty as charged. Somebody has to vote Republican in Connecticut.
With the exception of teeny cussing out winter while singing Christmas carols. :)
I had a chance to go to Pittsburg about 10 years ago. I was very surprised how pretty the city was. I was expecting smoke stacks, etc but drove out of the tunnell from the airport at night and saw what looked like a ski town. It was beautiful.
The city's signage codes, however, didn't help. I was hoping to grab a hamburger before I went to the hotel so I thought I would just drive up the freeway and pull over when I saw the first fast food sign towering in the sky. Never say one! It made for a beautiful city but also made one hunger and frustrated traveler!
Holy Crap! Put some bacon on that you've got a deal!
I ate there and had one of those last time I was in the Pitt. Damn fine eating! We did not win the bid, so the rest of the trip sucked.
Mmmmmm that DOES look good! : )
Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. Winter is the suckiest thing ever invented. Wind sucks, ice sucks, snow sucks, cold air sucks, dead plants suck, snow days suck, gloves suck, Jack Frost sucks . . .
But what about snuggling in front of a roaring fire, smores, and toast.........hot toddys! : )
Perhaps I'll organize a petition or something.
Why do I get the feeling you do sadistic things to the neighborhood snowmen?
Oh I love the actual holiday of Christmas. It's just now the sad memories equal the happy so I kinda swing between joy and funk.
"And tidings of Fuuunnnky and Joy
Funky and Joy!
Ohhhhh tidings of Funnnnkkyyy and Joy!"
