 Happy June 2018 Colorado Clerks!

An official welcome to summer is in order…

Me, “Welcome Summer!”

Summer, “Thanks”

Me, “Any big plans for the next few months?”

Summer, “Not much, just going to make it so hot you’ll fear you might burst into flames”

Sorry if you expected more but Summer answered me, that’s pretty exciting.

(By the way, when my son was 7 we were walking to the car on a 100+ degree day and he said to me, “It’s so hot that I’m afraid I might burst into flames.”  TRUE STORY)
