August. Yeah. You heard me. The Best of August. Which means we are now … in September. Almost the middle of September actually. Holy crapballs.
And that bale of musty straw sitting in my backyard that I meant to get rid of in May? It’s still there.
The fencing around the recycle bins I was going to build? It’s not built.
The automatic watering system I developed for the chickens? It’s in its 4th month of planning stages.
However … I did get a lot of crap done that I wanted to accomplish. I dug up my entire front yard and put in a vegetable garden, I cleaned up my front porch, I got my basement foam sprayed, I had central air conditioning installed finally.
Good thing too. This is the year the newspaper reporter with the big flash on his camera would have been taking pictures of the fella and I withered up and dried out on the upstairs landing. This was the hottest, driest summer I can remember.
It goes without saying that the very best part of August was the spectacular trip to the Urgent Care Centre.
So, I’m going to leave that one out of the August roundup. Hardly seems fair to the other posts to include a post that has blood, phlegm, roller derby and thievery.
Therefore, aside from the trip to the urgent care centre …. THESE are the best of August.

I still haven’t gotten around to the flaming monkey butts I’ve been promising you, but I may have an opportunity this month. What do you have to look forward to for the rest of September? STUFF. A lotta STUFF.
