If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning............ All over this land....................... If I had a bell, I'd ring it in the morning............... All over this land................. If I had a song, I'd sing it in the morning.......... All over this land........ I'd hammer out justice, I'd ring out freedom I'd sing about love between my brother and my sister, All over this land. well, I have a hammer, I have a bell, I have a song

Rest in peace Mary Travers. (Peter, Paul & Mary) you will be missed.

I'll miss that hip hop version of "Forever Young" on the pepsi commercial. I've only listened to it about 10.000 times. Actually. I'll never drink pepsi again.

Oh Py.. if I could still wear a tube top proudly...I'd buy two, one for each of these flappy old lady upper arms. I really wouldn't care what season it was.

;)

(And if you think I'm serious, you're wrong. My arm's don't flap. I'm joking! They jiggle just like everyone else.)

What the heck is a Busker?

If I ever get interviewed for an on the street question, I am going to say I am a professional LJW commentor! That would be hilarious.

R_I~ I think you can still wear your tube tops after Labor Day as long as they're not white.

Also--as long as you stay indoors with the shades drawn whilst wearing them. Agreed, girls? Multi? Ronda?

This was the best summer I've ever spent in KS, due to the lack of excessive heat. Even in August, the fields were green and not scorched and dead.

And, while I don't miss school being out, per se, I do miss the luxury of not having to set the alarm clock.

Fall is my favorite season, so...not much. It was fine while it was here -- actually, this was better than most because the weather was more pleasant than usual -- but I'm happy fall is here.

Did Donna pass away? Disco will never be the same.

Oh, the season. It will be back in a couple hundred days whether I miss it or not.

Let's be a 'Positive Polly' and look on the bright side.

spending extra time with the kids and watching my lefty finally get to the stage where he could swim during swim lessons without looking like he was having a siezure.

I lettered the side of my riding mower, "I survived mowing season, 2009".

I have never mowed so much in my life! I think it rained every 4 days or so. Sick of it!!!! I am getting ready to spray Round-up on the gravel drive for the third time this year. (Can't seem to get Merrill out to my place. Must be busy pickin' weeds in town.)

“The awesome weather that we’ll never get again.”,

what does she know that we don't know? --

This summer?

The bump on N 2nd. I came through from the North the other day and noticed a little rumble and thought, "this will be gone soon"

My next thought was, "That's just not right!"

I will miss the temps in the upper 90's with 85% humidity. I will miss the fleas, ticks and chiggers and mosquitoes. I will miss mowing with all the aforementioned.

Yes definitely Tads. "Jayhawk" is my fave flavor. just a grape and cherry mix, but oh so good, and oh so team loyal. The wife likes "summer Breeze"...it makes her feel fine.

This summer? Not a gorram thing. Worst three months of this decade for me, and I'm happy to see the end of it.

Days under huge trees by the field with my straw hat and a bandana sweating sweet summer sweat throwing boomerangs and drinking lemonade.

Did we even have a summer this year? I thought we went from spring straight to fall.
