Billy Holiday sings Summertime - if your Daddy's rich and your Mamma's good lookin'.
Probably my favorite summer time song - Mungo Jerry. I've been listening to this song since 1972 and still haven't figured out all the lyrics.
I mowed the yard front and back, had the clothes hanging out to dry and was planning on going back out to do some more outside stuff after a bit of a late lunch, but since it looked like it might storm, I bailed and stayed in after taking the clothes off the line and tending the chickens. I'm not sure what the temperature was but had to be about 90. Not as bad as some of the temps they're having in Europe these days. I read it hit a record 114 someplace in France the other day.
I bought a new gas can and mixed up some two-cycle fuel for the motorbike I finished up last year. The grandsons will be back this week and we're going to see about getting it running. The younger one was eyeballing the little Harley Rapido the other day. We might have to get that one running after the motorbike. Last time I looked at it I was fiddling with the air cleaner and housing. I don't recall if I got the housing repaired or not but I did locate an air cleaner for it. As long as the boys keep coming down, I might actually get a few projects finished.
