December and January bite the big one, no racing.

The rest of the year is OK by me.

Favorite 60 days

Mid-April to Mid-June... more daylight; blossoms, blooms, leaves appearing; not too much cold, heat, or humidity.

Favorites: February and September, because they are the birth months of my wife and daughter, respectively. :-)

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!

Most disliked--August. My garden gets scraggly and I lose control of the jungle--the humidity makes me cranky and I'm so tired of the buzzy haze. Nothing is blooming. Fighting the Jap beetles.

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.

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.

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.

Love
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.

Love/Hate Relationship:
December: Christmas, I love the holiday, but dang, I get so depressed!

Hate
July and August: Lets see, we had 107 to 110 degree heat indexes these months. Everything gets scorched, including me. Enough said.

You must live up north. In Texas by June we're heavy into summer we're getting our last rain for the summer.

We have had rain all year up till about a week ago, and a drop more would be nice to get the cotton finished.
Our pastures are green and the horses are loving it! : )
Downside: I'm having to mow every week and have killed the ride on, three times! LOL

October - lovely weather, nice foilage, football, Mr sassbox's birthday, and Halloween.

December - first snowfall usually and, of course, Christmas!

Least Favorites

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.

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.

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!
