summer…what is there to say? It’s fun, it’s hot, it’s miserable…It’s not conducive to posting to this blog.

apparently.

But things are looking up, the amazing weather brings smiles and earthquakes!

I see this van everywhere…I think I’m being followed.

Do you think it’s trying to tell me something?

Nah.

Summer always involves a lot of driving, and this year is no exception…summer is that magical time that turns a 3 hour drive into…

a 5 hour drive!

Yes!

 

Non-stop A/C? Check!

Stop and go on the BQE? check!

Cemetery? check!

Van carrying the empire state building? Check!

 

 

Checkers? Check!

Did I ever tell you that I’m horrible at checkers?

Now I did, so- Check!

Summer involves finding cool dark places to spend a siesta…

this is one of my favorites.

It was so hot out on this day that I saw a lady spontaneously puke while walking down the street, she didn’t even break her stride!

I’m saying it was because it was hot out, not that she was sick, or hung over or anything else. It was that hot.

 

Summer means incredibly inaccurate weather reports…

…and sudden afternoon downpours…

 

(this building has nothing to do with summer really, I just like the paint job. Taking pride!)

…and getting caught in massive thunderstorms while driving…

…and humidity…

 

…and random acts of violence…

 

Summer means appreciating stuff…

like the weather!

 

and reminding yourself how shitty winter was!

Summer involves lots of good group shows…

Abe’s Indiana painting at Mixed Greens!

Summer means vegetation…

Plants love the summer here!

Not like texas, when they all had to be constantly fed water like patients on intravenous drips…

Its like a jungle here!

Except not at all…but it is really green

 

Summer is almost over…
