Goodbye Summer



I can't believe that Summer's almost over. Time really flew by this year. I wonder if the little shit who through the clock out of the window is responsible for how fast the Summer of 08 has passed...

I hope everyone had a good one. I know we did. Still, I really would have liked to have had a chance to do more fishing and maybe some camping. There's always next year though.


Summer came and went, but now it's time to get ready for Fall. Soon the Cooler air will be here and we'll all be wearing sweaters and eating lots of soup.

How did you spend the Summer of 08?

We spent it paying off credit cards, spending time with our parents, and trying to get pregnant -- all of which can easily be accomplished within the air-conditioned biosphere that is the Texas indoors.

Dana said...

Ummmm ... Corky? Did you jump in the time machine again??

Terri said...

huh? I'm with dana on this comment!

Nancy said...

Waaahhhhhhhht?

Mine hasn't started yet =)

bonnie said...

Huh? Well, okay, I'll play. I lost twenty pounds, I nekkid sunbathed every day, I started triathlon training, stopped drinking, created a completely new body of artwork, created a killer website from which I made $20,000 in sales. Yup, it was a great summer.

Leighann said...

Well I'm not sure which planet you're currently on, but back here on Earth Summer is just getting under way!

:p

furiousBall said...

mine just started ... or technically it hasn't yet

Jay said...

OMG it's football season then!!! I'm ready!

Guilty Secret said...

AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

Corky, you're scaring me!

Biddie said...

Almost OVER? My kids haven't even gotten out of school yet. Will they ever ben pissed when I tell them that summer is nearly over!

leslie said...

Only 190 shopping days left until Christmas...

Oh. And Summer is not over. It is vacationing in Tucson.

Tink said...

Quit aging me Cork! Summer has only begun dude, and I have only started to party. :)

Knight said...

What the crap? Summer doesn't technically start until this Saturday. Quit trying to scare me!

Sassy Mama Bear said...

Are you sneaking my Vicodin again???
Summer is not nearly over yet you fool.
If it was I would have camped, fished, hiked, and recovered from my surgery by now.

So go fishing, go camping and have fun. Wear your sunscreen though and protect that little babe.

Alekx said...

shit did I sleep through the rest of June, July, August and September (in texas that's still summer)
Crap I know I shouldn't have taken that sleeping pill

erika said...

corky, how could you have fooled me so. i thought i might have been rip van winkle, and that i dreamed. so i clicked on my calendar on my computer, and it said june. so i went and bought a paper, and it said june. so i turned on the news and it's the same crap as it was last year (i'm afraid and everything is an emergency), so i figured it was the year 2004. but then i saw lesbians and sulu from star trek getting married, so i figured it must be fall, 2028. btw-great weather today!

Burfica said...

I spent it with no fucking cooler in Arizona. It's official, I'm in hell!!!!

little wanderer said...

you been drinking my share of the bud again mate?!
mind you yesterday we had sunshine, today I read this post of the summer ending and it is pissing down, think I am going to blame this rain on you!!!!!!!!

captain corky said...

Spamboy: I'm a bit concerned that you didn't spend a good part of the Summer watching TV. But I live in Louisville KY so I completely understand how important air conditioning is.

Dana: You know me so well. ;)

Terri: Just trying to keep people on their toes. ;)

Nancy: I hope you have a great one!

Bonnie: LOL! Sounds like a great Summer. I don't know about quitting drinking though. ;)

captain corky said...

Leighann: Sometimes I have no idea what planet this is. ;)

Furiousball: I know you're one person who will have an incredible Summer.

Jay: Exactly! This year we have to get a blog Fantasy Football League going.

Guilty: OK, the Summer of 08 hasn't really started yet, but don't tell anyone please. ;)

Biddie: I don't want them to be mad at me so blame someone else please.

captain corky said...

Leslie: Is that all?!? I better get started. I've got a million gifts to get for myself, and a few for Max and Allyson too.

Tink: Sorry about that, and you're right there's still plenty of drinking to do this Summer.

Knight: "What the crap" is a great expression and I think I'll make it my expression of the week and say all night at work.

Sassy Mama Bear: "So go fishing, go camping and have fun. Wear your sunscreen though and protect that little babe."

Sound good, but could you please send me some of that Vicodin? That would make my Summer even hotter. ;)

Alekx: According to many it's still June so you're good. ;)

captain corky said...

Erika: LOL! Sulu got married? I wonder if Kirk was invited... Somehow I doubt it. :)

Burfica: At least you didn't' get bitten by any rattle snakes. That's always a good thing. :)

Little Wanderer: You can blame the rain on me as long as you're singing in it. "I'm singing in the rain, Captain Corky is my hero and it's glorious." Kind of like that. ;)

CRUSTYBEEF said...

happy belated fathers day!!

Summer is going by so fast!! Just wait until your Max hits school age..then it'll really fly by!!

Good summer nights and perhaps a tractor to ride on with beer in hand,
Crusty

The Lone Beader said...

I spent the summer getting back together with my high school sweetheart. :)

Crashdummie said...

is the summer over...?!?

DAMN IT! I missed it this year again. shoot!

fiwa said...

If summer is over, I've been cheated. We haven't even had spring here! 40's at night and mid 60's during the day with lots of rain or clouds. That's not summer. :(

katie said...

i can only assume that u are being a smart ass and a wishful thinker to boot right here, Corkster! :)

I myself hate summer, so i am more than willing to go along with your thinking right here and reminisce about the long gone summer of '08!!

Tequila Mockingbird said...

FUCK YOU! summer is NOT over! in MN it just began like the middle of last month!

shhhhhhh, if you say it, mother nature will hear you!

CarmenSinCity said...

I'm confused. I think it's just the beginning of summer right? I know, because it's 106 degrees here today and my air conditioning in my car broke all of a sudden - I just paid $500 to have it fixed, so I'm not pleased.

whimsical brainpan said...

You know, as soon as I see the leaves on the trees I think, "It'll be fall soon".

captain corky said...

Crusty: thanks! Nothing like a nice cold beer on a hot Summer day. ;)

Beader: Very nice! Bonus points for knowing how to play. ;)

Crashdummie: Just like that. ;)

Fiwa: No, that's some Winter days in KY. Sometimes it gets colder and sometimes it even snows.

Katie: I'm never a smart ass Katie. ;)

captain corky said...

Tequila: I love it when you talk dirty to me. More! ;)

Carmensincity: I wouldn't be pleased either. A couple of Summers back I drove around without AC and my wife almost killed me. ;)

Whimsical Brainpan: Me too, until I step outside and can't breathe from all the humidity. LOL

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

I had every intention of taming my angry wiener this summer. Guess I missed my chance.


sigh....

Tod said...

What? You mean I have to switch from Pimms back to G&T? But I've only had the chance to drink three bottles of the stuff! Oh bollocks!

Charlene said...

Corky,

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. And thanks for saying you like me saying fuck!!

erika said...

okay, so i totally love this post. just so you know! it makes me really happy on a number of different levels. see you guys tonight!

Farmer*swife said...

Hey? Corkmiester. Summer officially started at 6:40-something PM yesterday. No, wait. It officially starts tomorrow at 6:40-something PM.

So, I'm breaking the rules and posting all my comments for the last three posts I've read....here, together.

Tractors: Partner, I live in tractor-ville. My six year old sone knows more about fixin' them than the guys at the tractor shop.

Y'all wanna' see tractors, combines, and cotton pickers/strippers? Head on down the "Texas Way!"

Happy day and Happy Tractor!

Farmer*swife said...

Oh, and I forgot! Happy Sewer!! Yeah, here in farm town many of us are on septic.

I got tired of our old little house because if so much as a bird pooped in the yard the septic would back up and the potties wouldn't flush! Suck city!

So, we built our castle out here and I told DH -- whatever size they say we need? I wanna' double it!!!!

Yea, and now it waters/fertilizes our coastal via underground! SWEET!

I mean, sweet -- for bein' septic

dilling said...

cooler weather is STILL here

DJ Kirkby said...

Cooler weather? We havent even has the warmer weather yet! I live in England remember? Lets not talk of Fall until we've had summer please.....

HoosierGirl5 said...

You are too funny, Corky. Apparently you stay indoors most of the time.

J.

Molly said...

WTF...summer has just started Corky. I hope that yours is a good one.

Aunt Jackie said...

Yeah Corky, if you think Summer is over, just move your ass to Memphis and melt way through past Halloween.

Summer Solstice PISH POSH!!! :(

nikki said...

So, when I first read this a week ago on my google reader, I thought you'd lost your mind. I was glad to see all the comments before this one stating as much. Anyway, this summer so far has been spent thankfully NOT listening to kids whine about it being too hot. It's been a not so hot summer so far.

Palm Springs Savant said...

It was an awesome summer. I was at water world every weekend and spend saturday nights watching reruns of the love boat.

Lady K said...

Are you HIGH? SUMMER almost OVER? Summer Solstice was June 21!It will be at LEAST 112-118 degrees down here until Halloween, and then it only cools down into the 90's.

You really need to lay off the crack-pipe, dude. ;-)

Biddie said...

Hello? Hello? Where are you, Corky???

Crashdummie said...

d'oh!

Pink Icing said...

Beginning to think the Enterprise has launched into hyperdrive and Corky is enjoying summer 09....

Ashley Ladd said...

Um, I'm confused. I can't think of anywhere in the world that summer just ended.

Middle Ditch said...

Summer has just started here.

I watched your videos and it brought back many happy memories. Don't they grow up quick. Enjoy!

Cazzie!!! said...

Its winter here, blowin; a gale too, I look forward to sleeping when I get home from work..and sticking my tongue out to all the people travelling into the city while I drive home to my bed from my night shift. Ha! They have to wrok in the cold day and I get to sleep like a baby in my warm bed..life is good :)

Portia said...

What now? Around here it's just getting started..and it's goood:)

leslie said...

Musta got that tractor he wanted. I can see him out on the back 40 drivin' it in circles. Bet he can't figure out how to make the thing stop. That's why he doesn't blog anymore.
You OK, Buddy?

VE said...

That reminds me of that last scene in Ferris Buehler after all the credits are done where he is saying "It's over...go home"

Charlene said...
