bazille_summer scene


Another sultry day gives way to another hot, still night. Doldrums. I might as well be living in Kansas. Well, except for the tornadoes.

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!
