July Absence

July was a very busy month for my family, so the blog was neglected. I will at least post a bit about the adventures of my son and I at the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation sometime soon. But, in an effort to at least post one thing every month, here’s a quickie.

I’ve enjoyed reading the “Old Farmer’s Almanac” every year since 1979, when my grandfather put me on to it. So, turning the page to August, I see a cute little aphorism, “If the first week in August is unusually warm, the winter will be white and long.”

Weather forecasts are for a very warm week indeed. Oh boy!

I also grew a beard this month that was shaved earlier today. 🙂
