I love the weather forecasters we get on RTE 1. The other night John Eagleton (I think that's his name) smiled and told us that the forthcoming holiday weekend would "probably not be the worst of the summer". Have we had anything close to a good weekend this summer? I'm still laughing at his "upbeat" forecast.
In a somewhat related note, I was gone for two weeks. Two nights before I left I cut the grass as short as I could. Yesterday evening I went out to hack down the jungle that grew up in the 19 days since I last tackled the yard. Time to get a couple of sheep, methinks.
