Well here we are July 25th, traditionally Christmas in July. Not very much like Christmas in Boston the temperatures last week were in the 90's and very humid and this week it rained and rained and stayed humid. Well while sitting in gridlock traffic coming home tonight I turned on the radio and to my surprise the oldies station was playing Christmas music. The long slow commute on a Friday night from Boston went from sheer misery to thoughts of Christmas yet to come. I listened to Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby and my mood was changed, not an easy feat with Boston drivers .
Well my thoughts drifted to Santa Costumes and search for some new boots and before I knew it I was sitting in my driveway. That painful hour of the daily commute flew by and I actually wanted to sit in the car and listen to that wonderful music. Reality hit when I looked at that lawn in desperate need of cutting after the week of rain. So much for green of Christmas in July I will have to settle now for the ride on the Green John Deere Tractor.
