Is it just me or does this Spring not impress.  It was perfect if you like lots of rain, cool nights, and sweltering heat.  I’m not really sure what I was hoping for or expecting but for some reason I feel disappointed.  Coming out of our long winter here in Maine should have made just about anything acceptable but it didn’t seem to work for me this year.  I have to say I feel a little let down.

Now that Summer has officially arrived what can we hope for?  More sunshine would be nice, maybe some cooler weather, less humidity, and just enough rain to keep the yards and gardens healthy.  That would be the ideal Summer but as we’ve come to realize of late, we almost never get what we expect weather-wise.

Why is it that we humans are never satisfied.  All winter we moan and complain about the lack of sunshine and warmth.  We bitch about the snow, the sleet, the freezing rain, and slush that seems to cover everything.  It drives us totally crazy to be cooped up in the house getting on each others nerves for months on end.  Then all of a sudden the weather changes and what happens.  We haven’t even had enough time to put away our winter clothes before we’re already bitching about how hot it is.  We continue that silliness into late October when things start to cool down in preparation for Winter.  We can’t wait for some cooler temperatures to save us from the terrible heat.  We have one snow fall and within hours we’re whining about the cold and wishing for Spring and Summer.  It’s a conundrum I tell you.

I can only deduce that we as a species are really screwed up. We never appear completely happy or satisfied with anything,  That would help explain a divorce percentage just over fifty percent.  Maybe not, what the hell do I know.  What I do  know is that I’m just as bad as everyone else when it comes to these things and I see no hope of finding a workable solution.  Am I a little depressed, why yes I think I am.  Do I need a little help?  Why yes I think I do.   Let me think . . . . . . . . . .

Maybe I need a walk on the beach and a quick dip in the cool ocean water to wake me out of these Summer doldrums.  A few dozen scantily clad bikini wearing young ladies might be just the thing to begin my healing.  I can walk down the beach and have a few drinks at the  Surf Side, enjoy their air conditioning for a hour or so, and then return to my blanket to relax and maybe read a few chapters of my favorite book.  Another dip into the ocean and a few dozen more buxom young things prancing down the beach are beginning to make me feel a whole lot better.  Who cares about the heat?  Not me.  I’m beginning to feel rather good.

Okay, just forget everything I said in those first few paragraphs because I was in the throws of depression and was totally wrong.  I’ve suddenly rediscovered a few things that can snap me right back to normal almost immediately.  Chant this along with me!

Give me a "T", drive me an "H", give me an "O", give me an "N", and a big freaking "G". C’mon Summer!
