Summer Storms in “Amity”

You know how I joke about “Undisclosed ” here being “Amity”, as in the film “Jaws”. With thanks to my nephew Greg, we have a few photos here to give you a feel for the place,

Especially during this current stretch of weather, you really can believe it is, indeed, Amity.

Try running to a market for something you need? Nope- line is too late long. Need to batten down the hatches during a severe thundershower? No way, as visitors are clogging the roads.

I still would not give up my little slice of heaven here. I get to enjoy it once Labor Day is done.

Yup, it’s that time of the year again. Memorial Day brings all the tourists down and with a forecast not written in stone, they show “Jaws”. I laugh because every time I watch this in tandem with the advent of tourists, you can pinpoint the accuracy Steven Spielberg used when casting for summer folks and their roles.

You could walk out my front door with me now, walk to the bay, and you’d laugh at the movie-type folk you see.

Fortunately, entertainment lasts only so long, and, thank God, October gets here!

Sunday Night

…and we are waiting for the winds and rain that are due to hit down here. It has been more like London than “Amity’ here.

One hard part is that Zush is feeling the aches and it is so hard for me to try to get her comfortable, although after a little while she does quiet down and go to sleep. I didn’t take it personally after I got my body down to the floor next to her bed to massage some oil onto her and as soon as I was done, she gets up like nothing hurts her, and then moves to her next sleeping spot.

So, gentle readers, keep my girl Zush, along with me in your thoughts. Care giving, be it canine or human, is rough, especially since they eventually can’t take me with them.

Take A Breath

I want to know if anyone ever heard the wind take a breath?

Down here in “Amity”, the wind down here doesn’t seem to know how to. Seriously.

The wind keeps blowing, and the weather report said the wind here is running 25 to 35 mph, with gusts to 50 mph.I am a big girl, and taking the girls out today, I think it was safe to say that the three of us could have, at one time or another today, qualified as Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons.You go down to the bay and wonder where it went, because it seriously lost its’ image, and now was like the Atlantic.

Not too long ago, I would have been walking the streets in center city, and had the wind blow me away there.It would be just like blanketed in steel and concrete.I’d sooner take it in down here, and look up and see the sunshine.
