Food For Thought

We don’t hear much about the proverbial dog days of August and early September in recent years. As a child, I heard quite a bit about them during those last hot days before we finally got a little relief and began to see signs that fall was actually on its way. To my childish mind, those “dog days” manifested themselves in the image of panting dogs digging cooling holes in the flower beds on the shady side of the garage, snoozing away hot afternoons with flies buzzing around their heads, waiting for the cool of the evenings and the onset of true fall weather.

Walkin'

After a relaxing night at Marquette State Park, we headed out Monday morning for the return trip to Alton. This time the ride was immensely more enjoyable than our ride up; the temperature dropped, a tail wind greeted, us a breakfast was served and weekend traffic disappeared, leaving the four lane highway with extra-wide shoulders to us and the occasional commuter.
