 The Beer was cold the evening was hot. I place Madison in the nursery hoping she would sleep better than I could. Somewhere along the line I lost a slipper. I figured I would fare better going barefoot the grass. My yard was a blonde empire of dried fried parched vegetation. Tomorrow I have jury duty. I was hoping to get out of it.

Morning came too soon hot coffee did not seem appetizing to me, the heat had not let up. My mind needed the coffee just the same. As I looked down I laughed to myself as I found the slipper I looked for while drinking beer.
