Guinea Pig Poetry.

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services 607851

Obviously Timmothy takes a few educated guesses when he writes his comic strip a month in advance for the newspaper. Yesterday we set a record for the lowest high temp ever in Minot ND for June 18th and much of North Dakota had frost warning last night.

That being said I do like Philemon's Ode to Summer. We do indeed get summer in North Dakota and it is hot, muggy and buggy when we do. Some true North Dakotan's are glad it's the shortest season of the year for us. Not me, I enjoy both weeks of it.

I didn't realize it was humid where you are! Or buggy. It's very dry and not buggy here - it's amazing how different things can be, even in adjacent states.

I think the bugs and the humidity come from MN Kat Palmiotti . 😉

Good morning, Bob... if I had to make a choice between hot weather and cold weather... I'd pick hot any day of the week!

I had no idea that guinea pigs were capable of composing poems, haha.  I don't like when it is buggy outside, luckily it rarely gets buggy here.

These two guinea pigs are quite gifted Brian England .I can't say that I mind bugs EXCEPT those flying & biting ones.

Good morning Bob. I can deal with hot and muggy, but prefer not to! As for bugs, never was a fan. Two weeks of summer? Thought you would get more than that for sure. Enjoy your short summer.

Today, the Summer solstice, is a stark reminder to me that each day now will be shorter then the last Wayne Martin and thus fall and winter are just around the corner. Obviously we do have a summer longer than two weeks but I do remember summers that had cold days in July and August so who knows just how much summer we will have in any given year.

Hello Bob - now you have me wondering about other forms of artistic expression.  Maybe, hog haiku.  Oink.  Oink...  After that I need some additional thinking time.  🐷

I like the "Hog Haiku" Michael Jacobs . I need to ask Timmothy if he can add to that.

We have had a couple of 80's Roy Kelley , a couple of 70's, but mostly 60's. I hope we don't get skipped over for summer here.

93 degrees outside of our home in Maryland as I post this comment. We are thankful for excellent central air conditioning.

Hello Bob and I am glad we are not to humid here in the Denver area.  We had a cool day of 72 in Denver yesterday

Humidity makes a huge difference Will Hamm . I'm not sure where our humidity comes from as we are not much in the lakes department.

It's been several years since I've camped anywhere.  I kind of miss it.

We have not headed out yet Myrl Jeffcoat but I am looking forward to it. We had thought that we would go out for a day but the weather has not cooperated yet. We do have some scheduled campsite time coming up and I do look forward to it.

I hope everything runs good prior to his visit Endre Barath, Jr. so you may remain comfortable. I did not go with central air when we rebuilt after the flood but I believe we will if global warming happens... however as most doom Sayers predict it's been about the opposite for us. Timmothy and I may but the window AC units in this weekend... if it doesn't snow 😉.

Michael J. Perry my mom was from NJ and her dad loved to fish. When she moved to ND the lack of sea food was the toughest thing for her (aside from being away from mom & dad).
