Flash 55 Friday - Hot, Hot, Hot - September 3, 2010

Flash 55 Friday - Hot, Hot, Hot - September 3, 2010

It's hotter here than Hades,
In the San Francisco Bay,
Where normally gentle foggy breezes,
Make it a pleasant place to stay.

My Southern belle upbringing,
Says I glisten, I don't sweat,
But, then, kindly tell me why it is,
I end up soaking wet!

Hot spell, 
Do not stay!
 Or I'll surely melt away!

Come join in the fun!


  1. Send it my way! We're already in highs in the low 70's and lows in the 40s here in Montana. I'm wearing a sweater right now.

    My 55 is here.

  2. Very cute 55! I like it.

  3. P.S. Just a comment on the music: I once watched a large group of Cubans dancing outdoors at Bayfront Park on a sunny weekend day in Miami. My favorite couple were really getting down to Hot! Hot! Hot! He was about 75 years old and looked like Anthony Quinn. She was about 8 years old and adorable. And their moves were hot, hot, hot. It was one of my favorite moments ever.

  4. The lovely Carmen Hennesy,
    A retired Nurse on a mission.
    To sail to every oceanic port...
    To have fun and NEVER Glisten.

    Loved your 55 My Dear..

    You Rock The Planet Baby..
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

  5. and there are those who doubt global warming!

    we have had 35 of over 90degree weather here in CT one hour north of NYC. eeek!

  6. Dear carmen,
    I really hope you do not melt away!

    Suffocating ... as here in the Canaries...

  8. beautiful poem

  9. Great 55. You made me feel the heat. Thanks for coming by to read mine.

  10. teehee...supposed to be down in the 70s here this weekend...i can not wiat...come on fall!

  11. So what counts as hot in San Francisco?

  12. Oh yes, I can relate. Been living in the tropics for about a year or two myself....*sigh* so badly want to go home. I'm done.

    I liked your 55....

  13. We just had some storms blow through and take away the horrible heat and humidity. I wish the same for you. I did smile at the "glisten" as my mother always said "men sweat, women glow" - lol! As you say - either way you end up wet! lol!

  14. Well, I'm sure one who is glad you don't sweat...but glisten instead--I just grin!

    Actually I LOVE the hot, hot, hot. So long as I can be in air conditioned comfort!!!

    Seems like yesterday we were ALL whining about the "longest cold spell" in memory.

    Carmen, my "55' is HERE

  15. It was terribly hot last wednesday...summer's crazy this year!

    happy weekend carmen!
