It's been a long summer already. We've had constant rain and the grass won't quit growing. Usually, in August, the grass is starting to dry out and maybe turn a little brown. I'm ready for that. My back yard looks like a hay field. Another thing, the f-ing mosquitoes are unbearable. This is the worse I've ever seen them. I was out hiking and photographing this morning. Even with tons of bugspray, they wouldn't leave me alone. They were in my eyes and ears. Geez.
