Seems now everyday we are hearing that rolling thunder, soon followed by the lightning and the torrential rains here.
I thought I could set my watch by it last week, as it began just in time for those on the roads heading home from work; lasting from minutes to hours, to all day long!
The thunder beings at play as they rolled, calling the lightning to dance across the skies and from cloud to cloud, then pierce those clouds in a swift moment and the rains come down with intensity.
The grass is greener than green and growing so quickly I think I need a goat to catch up!
Oh the rains, the HEAT, the days of summer getting going around the country.
Some need rain, some are raining frogs, and others are under a No water, no fires no where for fear of impending disasters.
We are even hearing folks saying they would love to see winter and put their heads in the snow… go figure!
Seems never is one satisfied in the moment of sun and her beauty and heat, always wishing and wanting what is not happening at the time.
Yet it is summer, and where did June go so quickly, now the fireworks are a dim memory, and we are already in the middle of July.
And I still see Stupid People
as they drive around and remember the need to just make a quick stop;
leaving their precious pets in the car.
I cannot help but wonder,
has anyone ever gone to the grocery store; turned the engine off, put up all the windows and just sat awhile?
JUST SIT THERE
Wait for someone to come back and give ya some air, some relief and some “coochie coo, good boy/girl for waitin” so patiently as you gasp for air.
Then I can’t help but take it a step further,
IF you walk by and see a precious 4 legged in a car with windows barely cracked on one of these summer days,
what are YOU going to do about it?
Will YOU take a stand, or just walk on by cussing under your breath and get in your car, in a rage of irresponsible ownership of another and drive away wondering?
We all have strong feelings about this issue, of dogs, humans left in hot cars, knowing full well the effects do not take long in the sun, cars parked on concrete, as one goes in to “grab a quick something”, while they may in fact get distracted along the way.
A select few feel so passionate on this issue that they will call 911 and in the meantime find something, anything and take action immediately.
What will YOU do?
Will you STAND and be proactive
will you walk by and wonder as you drive away how another human could be so selfish, so self-absorbed and careless?
A Child, Elder, Dog, Cat
left in a hot car
while someone has to stop, go or do something in the heat leaving a window cracked,
is negligent at best.
The results can be death at worse,
and dehydration and system failure.
Thinking about carrying bricks in my car, just in case they are needed myself;
how about you? TAke care of those pets folks… you are their voices, their reason, in all seasons.
Jeepers is wishin you a great day,
and hopes you have enough sense to come in from the rains, while dancing to the rolling of thunder
and stay out of the lightning reach!
He does enjoy a ride in the car,
only if he gets to go where you go
at all times!
Here comes the thunder beings
oh they are being unpredictable today! NOTE: we are missing a warrior>>> if anyone sees or hears from Irene/FIRM/Icescream, please tell her to check in here! She has been gone too long, without checking in …
Walk in Beauty
