It’s Not Where Has Summer Gone But When Will Summer Go?

Where Has Summer Gone?

It hasn’t gone anywhere.  As a matter of fact, just as it was leaving it decided to turn around and come back and bring one more miserable hot week-end.  It wouldn’t be that hot if we only had a/c.  But, since we don’t, anything over 85 degrees becomes unbearable and grounds for many random moments of unkindness and moodiness.  I don’t like summer.  I didn’t like it for the 50 years I lived in New Orleans, and I’m not liking it much out here on the West Coast either.  At least it rained in New Orleans during the summer.

Here’s a great oldie for some of us…enjoy!

  1. Ouch. Days like that when we didn’t have an AC, we hid in the library, movie theater, or mall food court.

  2. LOVE THIS SONG! heat with no AC – ick – when i was young, we placed wet towels in the freezer, then placed the on our foreheads and back of the neck – the idea was to stay cool until we fell asleep, then when we were sleeping, we never noticed how hot we were. it worked – sometimes;)

    • I lived in Louisiana for a time, and the mosquitoes and flies were so bad that you couldn’t sleep.

      No air conditioning in hot weather sucks.

    • This song was the first thing I thought of when I saw the prompt. That and the weather predictions for this coming week-end. I may pull a ‘Marilyn Moment’ and stand in front of the open fridge now and then 😛

  3. Thanks for the tunes. Florida was not even developed as a State beyond its agricultural potential before the fifties and sixties when everybody got air/conditioning. We have a neon sign on our porch from an old hotel, it advertises, “Refrigerated Air” and phones & televisions and a heated pool, and magic fingers beds. I could not live here without,”Refrigerated Air”

  4. As a kid I remember folks saying in church, “they can air condition bars but not the church?”

  5. I guess living a little further up the coast really makes a difference. San Francisco will be in the low 70s this week. Hope your heat wave breaks soon!

  6. I’ll have to admit, when I was a kid and growing up, I loved summer. But now that I’m older, I enjoy the fall more than anything. That song is so amazing–thanks for sharing!
