Complete rules in Monday's post.
Today it's officially summer everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. Just so you know. No matter if you're still wearing windbreakers. Or parkas.
It's Summer Solstice. A time for playing and merry-making. More daylight in 24 hours than you'll see until this time next year.
I've been wishing you all Happy Summer for a while now. It's because I live in a furnace. I've been wearing shorts since March, and our air conditioning has been on since April.
Here in Texas, we have Almost Summer, Summer, and Still Summer. Almost Summer comes after spring. The two are not the same.
But here at Under the Tiki Hut, it's a perfect day. Lots of sunshine all around. Blue sky. The surf is lapping, the fans are spinning just enough for a little breeze. The Margarita machine is whirring. Bob Marley is singing in the background.
But look at this guy to the right. He ran in and shimmied right up the center pole. Must be a firefighter in disguise. You think?
Maybe I need to call a real firefighter :)
I love firefighters because....
A round of drinks on the house! Raise them in a toast to Summer Solstice!
