How was your three day weekend? Mine was hot. I don't know if it was record breaking heat, but we had temps in the hundreds in my neighborhood. Did I ever mention that we don't have an air conditioner at this house? It's usually not so hot in my neighborhood, but it was exceptionally toasty with little to no relief, so we had to improvise, like making use of the Spiderman Slip 'N' Slide.
The warm and humid weather brings all sorts of interesting clouds, which helps to provide the most fabulous sunsets.
All summer long, we can see the tower at Sea World, lit up to represent the colors of the American Flag. In years past, it was only lit up at Christmas time. I believe it's lit up year-round now, but with different colors for Christmas.
Just about every night, since about Memorial Day, we've seen the Sea World fireworks at 9:50 PM, and ends at 10:00 PM. My dog goes crazy barking EVERY NIGHT when the fireworks go off. Luckily, the neighbors really don't notice, probably because their dogs are barking, too. I thought my dog would get used to the booming noise, but she has to put in her 2 cents every night. Now that Labor Day has passed, the fireworks will only happen on the weekends, and the dog will have to bark at something else.
Back to business...
It's time for the list of the August winners for: "NAME THAT ARTIST /BAND/COMPOSER/MUSICIAN/ETC." For those of you who haven't played yet, it's pretty simple. I title my blog posts with song titles.
