Everything will be funner in July

Vogue magazine, June 1, 1917. This is not the scene here in the Sonoran desert.

I'm still here! I knew headed into June that it was going to be a tough month for finding time to write posts, and then I used that as an excuse to turn it into a self-fulfilling prophecy. 

My goal for this year is to finish with between 120 and 130 posts, and now I've fallen behind a bit. I'm on pace for only 117 posts. Still plenty of time to get back on track.

July will be funner! I have plenty of stuff to write about; I just need to get back in the groove. There won't be much motivation to go outside in July, as the forecast temperatures for the first nine days of the month here in the Arizona desert are 110, 111, 110, 110, 109, 108, 108, 108 and 110. Holy broiler, Batman. I feel awful for the feral cats and kittens. It will probably be mid-month before we get our first monsoon.

I have still been reading this month, at least. My current reads are "Islands of Abandonment: Nature Rebounding in the Post-Human Landscape" by Cal Flyn, "Television Horror Movie Hosts" by Elena Watson, and "Lurkers at the Threshold: 100 Ghost Tales from German Folklore" by Jürgen Hubert. An interesting mix! 

Check back for more here soon. Blog Assistant Pete is watching over my shoulder to keep me on track.
