Ga ga Over Summer

We're teetering on the brink of June, 
almost ready to plunge into the abyss 
of another endless summer 
(at least that's what it feels like in the Arizona desert).

Let's check in with a few above average Americans 
to find out what they plan to accomplish during the lazy months.

 Beverly plans to continue selling Avon at the Sunset Retirement Home
under the guise of free makeovers

Hester plans to continue honing her photoshopping skills after successfully substituting a smiling head for a nonsmiling head on her uncooperative husband, Stuart in the current family picture.

 Having successfully locating the end of the rainbow with the aid of a GPS device, Hector is determined to pinpoint  the elusive breeding grounds of unicorns.

 The "Arthur" Family hopes to continue their successful subterfuge posing as a fundamental survivalists growing jojoba in the Nevada deserts, after testifying against their notorious Santorini crime family cousins and entering the witness protection program.

This is the summer that Lucretia is finally going to stand up to her dominant twin, Lavinia 
and admit that she likes wearing glasses because she likes to look smart.

Warren and Cissy are going to continue to work hard in group on lingering anger issues over Mother's insistence on Irish step dancing lessons.  
Wilbur continues to be a fashion leader in the congregation.

After the tornados, Gilbert is finally going to have enough downed telephone poles 
to lash together a raft and float down the Mississippi. 

What are you going to do with your summer?

marvelous photos found here

Since Beverly has stolen my dream job, I have to find where I put my thinking cap and start over again! I thought about joining the "Arthur" family, but that beard frightens me.

Such a hard decision, and your pals have set the bar so dang high! How to compete with growing jojoba in the desert and doing make-overs at the retirement home?

next: where did you find the photo of my cousin, No Neck Neil?

last photo: You have given me an idea, floating down the Mississippi sounds soooo fun!

What the hell Wilbur!?? Can't you see what's going on here? Look man, LOOK!

just call me jo said...

Oh my goodness. These people do cheer me...And here I am complaining about my conditions. I am sooo much better off than any of these unfortunate souls (except maybe Gaga, but then we'd only be talking money and body wise that she betters me. Oh, and vocally. But other than that I have her hands down.) I'm goin' to jump in the pool.

Well, let's see... my job ends in 5 weeks. Then I think I'll be a hobo.

I'm fostering a baby kitten that was abandoned in the barn out back - really. Do you want a kitty?
