Time for a snack in the cooling shade



“I believe in a benevolent God not because He created the Grand Canyon or Michelangelo, but because He gave us snacks.” ― Paul RudnickI Shudder and Other Reactions to Life, Death, and New Jersey

Tomas, the on site groundskeeper for my rental site residence, worked a long time in the afternoon sunlight without taking a break from the grueling heat. Around 3:30 p.m. I offered him a cool can of ginger ale and asked him what he was doing. He told me new grass seeds were being planted and they were using burlap bags to help anchor the seeds to the ground.His impromptu break from work clued me in as to what he was doing there.  Working in the hot sunlight can take a toll on a person. — gc
