Summer's here

What's black and white and eats like a horse ?
A zebra.

So the summer is starting here. My grass looks great at the front, we choose not to talk about the back. Plants are growing, mozzies are biting and kids are covered in dirt. I love this time of year, grilling out all the time, lots of time in the evenings, nice morning weather ... man, NC is great in May and June. Fingers crossed for a cooler summer than usual, and that mozzies turn vegetarian.

Funny joke. No, really, I mean it.

It's too cold for mozzies here. Happy to hear your grass is growing well.

Hey man you are an inspiration, perhaps I can post more now too, I can just write about anything right?

By the way, since you are the only Enlishman I know...what is the derivation of 'suss'?

Suss means to figure something out. You'll hear things like "he's fine, he's got it sussed now".

Gussets are something else.
