Happy anniversary to the Lair. It is worth saying twice.

Good morning, everyone!

"August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
Expected,
But still catching me unprepared.
Like a matchflame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
A moment,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more
But it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away."


- Elizabeth Maua Taylor

August
 
  When the blackberries hang
swollen in the woods, in the brambles
nobody owns, I spend

all day among the high
branches, reaching
my ripped arms, thinking

of nothing, cramming
the black honey of summer
into my mouth; all day my body

accepts what it is. In the dark
creeks that run by there is
this thick paw of my life darting among

the black bells, the leaves; there is
this happy tongue.

Mary Oliver

I am inside...until the birdfeeder needs refilling. I am about ready to go offer tributes to my A/C . The big compressor outside I replaced after I moved in but the unit in the garage..central heat and air is at least 20 years old..I should replace it for a more energy efficient unit..and peace of mind...LOL

If anything happened to my A/C today ...I would be in a motel, with my kitty, in a wink.

I know you're smart and glad to hear you'd head for a hotel if worse came to worse.

We were scheduled for another rainy day with t-storms and so far the air is 77º and pretty dry, a gift!
