Dreamin of summer

Postby SurfNTurf » Thu Jan 10, 2013 10:42 am

I was originally supposed to post this if I lost a bet hinged on the Broncos/Ravens game, but with -40 degree wind chills tomorrow forcing me to cancel a hike I thought it was too hilarious to wait. Inspired by this thread.

And, go...

Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end.'" - Edward Whymper

Good start. You must still be working on that 300 word essay, and looking for cheese on sale, and cleaning the bathroom...and listening to Dream Girl.

This is what I remember from last summer.

I'm happy to stick with winter and spring for a while longer

Don't let Surf fool you...Spring is his favorite time of the year!

Being a teacher I tend to spend a lot of time 'dreamin of summer'. This is my best pic from last summer.
