Friday Flash 55.....



Last year the Winter, was a long time leaving.
This Spring was short, July was cool...Heat Lovers are grieving!
Is that calender right? Is it August ALREADY?
Summer is quickly receding!!
But there is always SOME anticipation,
with the approaching Autumnal Moon.
Opening kick-off for the Wolverines...
On a September After-Noon!!!



Four weeks and counting baby...I can hardly wait!
Plus as this is being posted, I'll be Gone...LONG GONE!!!
Please do your part and support your fellow 55ers by visiting and commenting today OK? Clunker Mania has Clocked me good, and I won't be seen or heard from till Sunday or Monday...Give a Brotha a Break Eh?

So from the most Absent host, from coast to coast...
Have a Kick-Ass Week-End

clean and crazy said...

i love the picture, we used to go to dodger stadium in LA. my dad said my grandma's house used to sit there, and the city paid her to move. Grandma was the old fashioned type who didn't believe in banks, she buried her money in mason jars in the back yard. To the day he died daddy always said there were a few jars of money under that stadium!! someday we may find out! mines up too.

Riding scooter tonight in Naples FL, I felt a wisp of Canadian air--just a whisper, mind you--caress my whiskered cheek.

FIFTY-FIVE (55) is UP. Sorry to be early--Thanks!

smarmoofus said...

Wow... that is a LOT of people. I was there a few years back, but it wasn't football season, so it was pretty empty. I assume. I was outside the stadium.

Anyway, my 55 is up. It's not about you... it's about me. Honest.

Fandango said...

WE dragons will miss summer. But footballs are very tasty. If only you people wouldn't get so upset when we eat them. Throwing beer is a terrible thing but then those cans are tasty too.

Ours is posted

I know what you mean. Tho, I love baseball...I do love football also. And college football is even better than pro if you want my opinion. The players and fans are just way better!!!

Have a terrific Friday!!

Galen: Mine is posted but the library computer is giving me fits. Sometimes the story shows up on this screen and sometimes it doesn't. Hopefully, you'll be able to see it! Keep clunking away! D

Akelamalu said...

I'm still enjoying the summer, it's not over until I go back to work on the 7th September! LOL

secret agent woman said...

Please don't wish away the summer - I want the warmth as long as I can keep it.

CordieB said...

I've heard so many bloggers depressed about the lack of summer; those on the western side of the USA. Yet, folks in Texas are yearning for a cool summer's day. That just hear in the good ol USA...I suppose God can't please everybody at the same time--because he made us all so unique. . . what a blessing that is. Super fiver, Gman.
