Summertime

Summer Sunshine

Summer Sunshine

And the livin’ is easy.

Admittedly, it isn’t quite summer just yet and there is often a chill in the air early mornings or evenings, but on our dog walks these days, in the late afternoon, the sun is warm on our backs. At the moment this is very pleasant, but give it a few weeks and it will be uncomfortably hot and we will walk later and later, choosing routes with maximum shade.

Little Monkey loves the sun, but I, in my Englishness, don’t like it that hot and wear a sunhat while darting from one patch of shade to the next.

 

post script: Summertime was composed by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess, with lyrics by DuBose Heyward and possibly also Ira Gershwin. You can listen here to Ella Fitzgerald sing it.Β

    Well, Little Monkey is a mad dog, so that makes sense. I know Englishmen are supposed to like the midday sun. Doesn’t the same thing apply to Englishwomen then? πŸ™‚
