the king in search of a throne
i saw elvis today - driving a black cadillac through the streets of montgomery. he took a left onto atlanta highway, heading north . . . in a semi related story, a toilet was abandoned on the side of adrian lane without a lid - i'm not sure how it made it's escape but it's waiting for you if you need it.
the dog days of summer have settled in with heat, humidity and afternoon thunderstorms but, as the summer slides into a comfortable lead i see little signs of fall. the acorns growing on the oak tree, the longer shadows, and children laden with larger than life backpacks. august melts into september who then floats on to october . . . don't you dare say christmas will be here before we know it.

You always make me sit up and take notice with your words. And usually laugh!ReplyDelete
Christmas? I don't even wanna think about it. Mostly I'm focusing on no further than labor day. Occasional thoughts of Halloween, but only little ones.ReplyDelete
A black cadillac would suit Elvis I think. Much better than Elvis in a Prius or a Geo Metro.
I choose to just close my eyes and pretend the summer will last forever...ReplyDelete
No, no, no,,,, not winter! I am holding onto summer as long as I can but it so looks like fall here already. Take care my friend.ReplyDelete
this was one of your funniest posts ever !ReplyDelete
and I agree....if I see anything christmas related in august, I'm moving to the moon !
Great post. It made me laugh I'm looking forward to Fall/Autumn. It's hot here in Florida and I'm not sure I can take much more of it. You can't even breath when you step outside most days. Weekends coming - everyone have a great one.ReplyDelete
Google me a map to that toilet.....ReplyDelete

Christmas? Who cares when Halloween is just around the corner? YAY-YEAH!!!ReplyDelete
Christmas is just around the corner! LOLReplyDelete

Oh no, I don't want to think about Christmas yet! Why does time have to go by so quickly?ReplyDelete
I'm glad there's signs of autumn on your side of the states, hope they move this way because I love that time of year!ReplyDelete

Summer is 9 months long here. We get summer...and fall. Luckily, I like to be hot. :)ReplyDelete

Just beautiful writing sweetie! Next time can you say hello to Elvis for me? Its been awhile.ReplyDelete
LOL..love the humor....ReplyDelete
If you had spaced these sentences differently, I would have guessed it was a poem.ReplyDelete
Sometimes I see Dolly at my local Starbucks! A wannabe!ReplyDelete
