The Dog Days. . .

 

 

Yes, on this thirty-first day, the dog days of August may be coming to a close but the puppy tales and the many memories we experienced need not end.  They can become a part of us.

 

 

Like every month, we are responsible for that.  And regarding memories, here is a quote that kind of puts things in perspective for me as we say goodbye to one month and shout a hello to a new one.



I used to love September, but now it just rhymes with remember.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - I don't have memories of sleeping late as a child - it doesn't mean it didn't happen but I don't recall it.

 

Ed Silva - faster than a blink of the eye may be too slow of a description to use.

 

 

Beth Atalay - green is good and it is a color that goes well with my wallet.  It is amazing that matches everything.  😃\

 

Kathy Streib - my days in retailing tell me Christmas seems right around the corner with the arrival of September.  Sometimes months before.  It doesn't happen "overnight".

We Floridians really look forward to this day each year. It means we are down to our final two months of incredibly oppressive heat.

I am glad that we have a month to honor our 4 legged companions.  My dog Drake is getting older and I know that one day I won't be able to make memories with him anymore.

Hi Michael Jacobs - Each month just goes by way too fast.  However, I have always loved the fall months and even more so living in Sedona where we have an actual change of seasons. Happy Monday!

Nina Hollander, Broker - thank you for the link but unfortunately before I could finish reading about the reasons why we call August the "dog days"  a window popped up requesting registration.   Whenever that occurs I seem to roll over rather than play fetch.  🙃  

 

Kimo Stowell - you may be right about Sirius.   And if even if you're not I enjoy the use of puns whenever they occur.

 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty - do the gators appreciate the cooler weather?  Oops - even more rabbit hole exploring. - may those memories-in-the-making continue for much longer.  

 

CANDACE (Candy) STEVENS, EA - may those memories continue to be made for a long time.  

 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - it's one of the many things I have learned while following you and your Sedona reports.

Michael Jacobs how odd, Michael... I had not pop up come at me... hopefully you got the drift. But if you google the term lots of sites pop up providing similar background.

Wendy Rulnick - movement is good but is it forward, backward or a sideways motion?  It's most advisable(in my opinion) to be positive yet realistic as we go on to our next adventure.

Morning Michael.

While I enjoy the heat, not the humidity.  Temps are starting to drop, which means the humidity will also drop.  It's wonderful

Nina Hollander, Broker - yes, I got the drift. The combination of many years on this planet as well as the ActiveRain experience has taught me the power of having a workaround plan handy.

 

  Endre Barath, Jr.  - Yin-Yang or something like that.

 

James Dray - I know from your posts and the comments from you that a smile is the common denominator in your daily life regardless of month.

Michael, you remember - that is correct, but right now, it is mostly 90 degrees.   The next couple of days upper 80's and maybe some moisture from the hurricane that came through Mexico.

Joan Cox - sometimes that memory vault works well but then there are other examples where uneccessary withdrawals are much more common.

Sharon Tara - September is now here and Fall/Autumn will soon arrive(at least officially).  It seems Spring, Summer and Winter can visit that season at times in unexpected/unplanned ways.

Oh, I love your photo, Michael! As for the Dog Days of Summer/August - I spent 10 days of bliss, vacationing last month. It was the perfect way to spend the Dog Days!

Debe Maxwell, CRS - a getaway can be good and I am glad to hear your time away was blissful.  I was also fortunate to escape in August but for a shorter time than you.  Just the same it was very nice to be in a different environment.
