Happy June 1, world.
Ready for anything, are you, in this month meant for warm thoughts and summer play (up here in the northern hemisphere, anyway)?
Well, my friend Paul over at The Captain’s Speech was not content leaving it remain merely any old June. No, Paul, this Canadian fellow who lives even a bit farther past the equator than I here in Syracuse, N.Y., has proclaimed it Looney June. He wants us all here in BloggyVille to pay tribute to the cartoon characters he loves so much.
What could I do for his cause?
I looked outside the side porch door of the Little Bitty in our Eastwood neighborhood.
I studied the backyard situation.
I asked Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle if she might be up for leaving her post on the back porch futon and let me rig up some ears on her a la, say, Porky Pig, for a walk around the city.
No dice. She had apparently already joined my dear wife Karen in the living room and seen what they were calling for temperature-wise for the day.
Of course. It’s Monday, Our little golf league is due to tee off at 5:45.
Sorry, Paul. I wanted to join in.
Who’s your favorite Looney Tunes character? What would be your Looney June contribution given a free slate? What’s the weather this June 1 in your neck of our woods?
