THURSDAY THIRTEEN - Summer quotes



more participants here

I am happy to announce that the warm and sometimes hot summer continues even in Belgium. So here are

13 quotes about summer

1. A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.

2. I know that if odour were visible, as colour is, I'd see the buses inside in rainbow clouds.

3. Summer is the season when the air pollution is much warmer.

4. Summer is the season when a man thinks he can cook better on an outdoor grill than his wife can on an indoor stove.

5. Being a child at home alone in the summer is a high-risk occupation. If you call your mother at work thirteen times an hour, she can hurt you.

6. Do what we can; summer will have its flies.

7. Tears are the summer showers to the soul.

8. Summer, what power it has to make us suffer and like it.

9. It's a sure sign of summer when the chair gets up when you do

10. Deep summer is when lazyness finds respectability

11. Summer bachelors, like summer breezes, are never as cool as they pretend to be.”

12. People take pictures of the Summer, just in case someone thought they had missed it, And to proved that it really existed”

13. Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat

"The muffed target" is a new meme on MONDAYS and has no special rules. Just post pictures which are not at all like you had wanted and describe how it happened. Then leave a link here on my blog for other participants.
Here is an example.

I laughed at the "It's a sure sign of summer when the chair gets up when you do" my toddler was stuck to his chair today when he stood up. Poor little guy didn't know what to make of it for a few minutes. He just walked around looking behind him, then he saw me laughing and started laughing as well. So cute!

happy Thursday!

My favorite season in Fall. I spend a lot of time indoors in the summer. I just can't take the heat with my medication.
Great list. Happy T13!

Thank goodness that I now live in a town where we do not have those air pollution issues.

Have a great day!
