Cheering me up just a bit: Beagle nursing cats. Not so cheerful is the fact that the picture must be at least fifty years old. Doggy and kitties are long gone.
I wish there was a nice swimming hole around here. I don't swim, but the splashing would be a pleasant sound.
A pleasant sound actually available: Duke Ellington and the Cotton Club Orchestra performing "Limehouse Blues" in 1931.
Go away, summer!
