so many kids will begin the school year in a few days.
all i can say is;
i'm sorry for them.
school in the beginning of August?
it's still summer!
i would be downright depressed if i had to do school in August
i won't begin until after Labor Day (september).
and that's the way most little schools around here do it.
three whole months of summer.
that is just the way it has to be.
i'm so, so thankful that i have three more weeks to run wild.
i have to admit that i'm getting a little weary of the blistering heat,
i'm looking forward to cooler weather and slower days,
but i'm not ready to commit these last months to memory just yet.
so in honor of all the poor kids that will return to 'prison' in a few days,
i've included a song.
I'm Sorry for You My Friend
by Hank Williams Sr.
not only does it go well with my pity for the poor schoolchildren,
its the perfect country beat for lazy summer days,
and my orange-red gingham dress.
(which is from a thrift store last spring,
homemade from the 1950s and has country vibes.)
