It's been an easy far

I know, I know. I shouldn't say things like that. God is an arrogant buzz-killer just waiting to hear a comment like that -- so he can zap the person with ill fortune. Because god is love, or something.

But it truly has been pleasant, at least here in the northeast. After a bracingly cold winter, I don't think any of us knew what to expect this summer. Would it be fiercely hot? Would there be incredible hurricanes? Would it rain all summer? Surely something bad was coming.

The question we never considered is "will it be a pleasant summer with hardly any heat-waves?" It is! And I'm lovin' it.

On the other hand, there's a climate nightmare going on in California. Their drought seems like it might continue for decades. Water rationing is just the beginning of the problems heading their way.

You have to wonder if maybe Jesus heard someone in California say, "We have the most wonderful weather on Earth, don't we Maisie? We are blessed!" You know how god hates that kind of talk. And so Jesus brought the drought to California. And because he was in a particularly vicious mood that day, he put a "keep going until further notice" sticker on it. Brrrr. He's a cold one, he is.

Anyway, here's hoping the various gods blessed your area this summer. Or maybe demons. Whichever. It doesn't really matter since they're all fairytale creatures. There are no gods, children. None at all.

Dog, it's nice outside!
