I used to love July.  Sunny.  Hot.  Warm nights.  Long days.  A great time to be outside.

Now, I dislike July for the same reasons I loved it as a kid.

Add to the mix, noisy fireworks legalized by a state government that is looking for cash in every vice, nook and cranny.

I'm sure working overnights and early mornings has something to do with it, but I'm not complaining.  The schedule works for me.

I attempt to soften the blow by taking a day off early in the month, and a week off at the end.

August can be nearly as difficult, but you can begin to smell fall in the air.
