late night croquet
adds a new level of challenge.
next time I’ll be ready
with my night vision goggles.
“the night plays games.”
glenn frey the cat not the rocker
is really upset
about the ongoing stretch of excessive heat
and has decided
to vocally protest
i have a different style
and feel that silent protests
might be much more effective.

We lost 38 seconds of daylight yesterday. By the end of the month, we’ll be losing over 2 minutes each day and by the end of next month, nearly 20 minutes per week. Here’s what you can expect as you savor the waning days of Michigan’s warm season:
July: -45 minutes lost
August: -1 hour 16 minutes lost
September: -1 hour 22 minutes lost
October: -1 hour 23 minutes lost
November: -1 hour 1 minute lost
It won’t be long until you have an extra 6 hours of darkness to spend on your indoor hobbies. Have a great Monday.
