I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

The Dog Days Of Summer!

Well I have to admit that not much has been going on here, so I haven't been good at keeping up with my blogging.  I am blaming the dog days of summer for my lack of ambition and my inactivity. 

To confirm the diagnosis of my problem, I did a search on Bing for the meaning of "the dog days of summer" and this is what it said...

Everyone knows that the “dog days of summer” occur during the hottest and muggiest part of the season. Webster defines “dog days” as... 
1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere.
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity.

So that is it, a period of stagnation or inactivity is to blame...I feel so much better knowing that I am not just a lazy and unmotivated individual.

I hope that you all are more motivated and are not being negatively affected by the dog days of summer.  Enjoy the rest of your week and stay cool out there! Thanks for stopping by.


  1. The dog days of summer are a great time to relax, sit back and enjoy life.

  2. But what happens when you have the dog days in the winter time? That happens to me when Jim is fishing and I'm sitting.

  3. The dog days of summer is what summer is all about. I will enjoy it.
