Foggy Field

There's a stretch of weather that doesn't look good coming for this weekend. This is a field, shrouded in fog, that I pass often heading into the city. Days like this, in a time past, were outlets for coloring books, board games the likes of Monopoly, and Clue. It was also a time to shut the bedroom door, lie on the bed and pick up my copy of the latest Hardy Boys mystery. Shhhhh! I even enjoyed a guilty pleasure: hitting a few of my shag golf balls into the fog towards old man Bustin's house. Hey, I had to do something til the weather cleared.

  2. I like this foggy-weather image and that you didn't include watching television in your childhood list of things to do on a rainy day!

  3. I'm sure you remember this poem...

    THE fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Your mysterious fog doesn't look like it's going to move on, though.

  4. Fog in summer - fog in winter.
    Fog always makes for photo opportunity.

  5. Mysterious and lovely! I wouldn't mind having such a scene here instead of the 40ºC they said temperature will reach today!

  8. Great foggy day photo for another foggy day. At this rate summer will be gone and we won't even know it was here.

  10. Yup. That is what I would see outside right now if I didn't live in a suburb where the fields are now filled with houses. Why complain? Sunday through Wednesday were as perfect as days get, and I just planted some grass seed and I need the moisture . . .

  11. My word verification was "glump," which I take as commentary supporting your views on the weather.
