My Story, Yours Too.

June's Here!

Dear June,
   I've known you were coming. It's no secret. For 11 months now, you slept on the side-lines. Yet you still managed to barge in unexpectedly. How'd you do that? I like you, kinda. Then again, you bring the start of miserably hot weather. You make me a year older, over which I have no say. 
   As far as all the months go, though, you are one of the best and prettiest. You also remind us of the importance of not going too rough on the Beaver. You're really quite special that way.
   So make yourself comfortable, but please don't overstay your welcome. Thanks. 
 
   Have a safe, inspiring, special June, my Dear Sillies.

  1. The year older stuff sucks, doesn't it?
    We're starting to hit that hot, humid stuff.

    1. Yeah, I used to be happy about Birthdays, Alex. Damn, though, it'll be my last year of being closer to fifty than...gulp.

      Stay cool, friend.

  2. Over here June is crisp and clean (some would even say cold). I don't envy you the heat and the humidity at all.
    Stay cool, stay safe.

    1. So far (only 2 days in), well, yeah, I'm blasting the A/C and staying indoors. Ha.

      You stay safe too, my dear.
      Thank you.

  3. June will be gone before we know it.

    We have beetles like that only they are bright green. Most people call them stink bugs.

    1. They seem to come in every color, and I actually think they're pretty.
      Happy June, Diane.

  4. june bugs love to swim (I mean drown themselves) in our pool. They are truly stupid creatures.
    June means the air conditioner is now on permanent run. I find that a tad sad. But June is your birthday?! That's a glad reason for chocolate cake my friend.

    1. Sorry you have to keep clearing your pool of dead June bugs. That must get tiresome. Stupid buggies! =)

      Thank you for stressing a good reason for chocolate cake. I'll use that as an excuse to eat some all month long.

      Cheers, Joanne.

    1. No, I do not, and that's why I was careful not to mention the "h" word. I'm sorry for that, Jeff. Stay cool over there.

    1. Ah, thank you, Connie.
      Us June babies are an exceptional bunch, I'd say.
      May it be a grand birthday and month for you, Connie.

  9. I want to make it clear that the rather unattractive June bug has nothing to do with me.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I didn't think so, Janie. I thought of you, but I didn't want to draw attention to the comparison. You're much more sexy than any June bug could ever hope to be.
      Love.

  10. I wonder if June Cleaver is happy or sad that Eddie Haskell is dead? I know this is cruel, but I always suspected she couldn't stand the little weasel...but, on a fresher note, it's only right that you were born in a time of roses. Happy Birthday, blossom person.

      Thanks for your sweet words too and as always, Margaret.
      Virtual hugs and happy thoughts.

  11. Happy B-Day! As a teacher, I found students born in June were the best! Mature, happy little guys. You would have been perfect.

    In Illinois June bugs were all over the place. Crunchy little guys.

    1. I love reading that about your June students. That affirms that we're a fine lot.

      I hope the June bugs don't bug you too much.
      Take care, Susan.
