The Dog Days Of Summer

Well, summer's coming to an end. The nights are getting cooler, the days are getting shorter... August is in its final days. The real heat seems to be behind us (knock on wood!), so it's safe to say that we've made it over the gauntlet. Some of us have spent our free time getting suntans. Others have gone camping. We've had heatwaves. We've had mosquito swarms (nasty buggers, the lot of them).

Here in Canada, if we're not dealing with the weather, we're talking about it....

Camping can be such a bear....

During the summer, you might be tempted to go really casual, and wear certain items you find comfortable. Don't worry; you've got a feline overlord to make sure you won't do that...

Everyone needs a vacation. Particularly if you've got the grueling schedule of only working one night a year...

Or maybe you're a very busy Grim Reaper, and just for a couple of days a year, you like getting away to a nice resort in the Virgin Islands...

Even Dark Lords of the Sith need some downtime.

Perhaps camping is your preference instead of lying on a beach.

Just mind the wildlife.

Summer's ending, and I couldn't be happier. The cold's coming. Soon we'll have frost at night. Then snow. Lovely, lovely snow. Did I mention how much I love the winter? No?

I'll leave you with something to get you in the winter mood....


  1. I wish we were looking forward to a cool down. This summer has gone long and I am cranky. Maybe we'll get below a hundred by Halloween. OMG I hope we get below a hundred by Halloween!

  2. Erin, I don't know where you are but it's the same here. It'll be over a hundred until October probably. I hate snow, but William you're all right. I love the joke about getting out of the humidity--into the dry heat of hell.

  3. This post is GREAT ! made me giggle.....

    cheers, parsnip

  4. Could not be truer. It is hot this summer. Love the laughter relief.

  5. Man, William, I wish our nights were getting cooler! I literally dream of fall at night. Unfortunately it doesn't look its coming to South Texas any time soon.

    Agree with Carole, thanks for the laughs!


  6. Sometimes I wonder about you!

    I can't decide which of these cartoons I like best. But if you say "snow" one more time...don't make me come up there!

  7. Seeing all those snowmen make me want to scream as I clutch onto the last of summer.

  8. What's the big rush to see summer go? I was just getting used to the heat.

  9. I swear you must be the only Canadian that likes snow...I know I don't! Crazy lad you are!! Liking snowmen...evil snowmen at that! May Ottawa get all the snow this can have it!

    Cute post.

  10. I don't hate winter, but I prefer summer and am not ready for it to end. It may have been hot but I LOVED it, even with the humidity. I'd take the heat any day.

  11. Absolutely right us Sith Lords need vacations.
