Those of you in other parts of the country may not feel the effects of late July early August, a time when I feel in general we in Texas basically get a case of the Late Summer Blues. Allow me to pontificate. This is the time of the year when the heat becomes just oppressive. The Fourth of July holiday as disappeared from your rear view mirror. School looms in the distance, but still a few weeks away. With the heat, and all of the above, it just leaves a lot of us down here downright lethargic. Unmotivated. Maybe the Mexicans have it right, I think we would all do better if we just closed our tents, and took a nice lengthy Siesta in the middle of the afternoon when the heat threatens to cook the souls of your shoes.
Bottom line, it leaves us struggling to keep focused. Some of us get caught up in the pennant race in MLB. Still a lot of baseball to play, but if you follow a team that has a wing and a prayer chance, you may just have something to keep your attention. Constant posts to Facebook seem to help, let all of your poor friends know that you are going to the gym, scratching your balls, whatever.
I even write this in pure boredom. Sorry. The Texas Rangers whom I choose to follow this year in the pennant race since my beloved CUBS suck so bad, are just plain boring tonight in their game against Oakland. Pshaw….I think I will go to bed.
