7.8.12 Nearlly stepped on this pine snake today but it made my month to to see a large snake (over 6 ft.) in the pines again. (that's a 4x4 in the foreground).

Heat wave here in Jersey with temps feeling like º110 today and for the next couple too. Poor Mary's show tickets are for today. NYC will be boiling.

The callused and heartless are thriving.
My friend has to settle for striving.
Aging, yet vernal,
His nerves are external,
