Next time can I have a key?

Summer is defined as the warmest season of the year, falling between spring and autumn. It runs from June to August in the northern hemisphere and from December to February in the southern hemisphere. I describe it as simply time for friends, family, sun, water and wine!

There are not many things in life more enjoyable then working in yard, cutting the grass and then going for a swim followed by a glass of something to dull the senses.  As luck would have it, I have several friends with pools, one of which is only a few houses a way and has a fine wine cellar to boot!

This morning I worked in the yard, cut the grass and made my way to the pool and a cold something.  Only to be disappointed — I WAS LOCKED OUT! – and I was not given a key?

No Key…

When at a gate with no key

One could flee

Or one could see a way

I found a way to stay

After time at the bar it was time to play

Soon I found myself drifting away


The water and wine rocked me to sleep

I next had the need to leap

Out of my suit and in the buff, free, free, free

The water was cold and I had to pee


But with not key and having to pee

One could see why I should have a key!

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…

    Now you know why we always just let you in the house and the refrigerator. Retaliation is not always nice. I also want to know who the cameraman was that had to take the pictures of you in the buff!

    Now you know why we just let you in and gave all access to the pool and refrigerator. Retaliation can be a bitch!
