Uh-h-h-h, Summer…

…which explains the dearth of new content. The entire TerryColon,com staff (Terry Colon) is outdoors enjoying the lack of cold and snow and freezing rain and all that. How long will this work slowdown last? How long is summer? See you soon. Relatively soon. Enjoy the archives.

Ah-h-h-h, Summer

summer2022

Summer is here. And there. And all around the town, as the song goes. And now, though you didn’t ask for it, a brief history of summer. The word summer comes from the last of the Germanic Goddesses, Elke Summer, who died in 1840. (Her son, Otto of Ulm, was the father of the car, the Ottomobile.) Elke translates to hot and Summer translates to something like Gol-darnit, so Elke Summer is hot damn! Prior to 1840 there was no summer and spring ran right into fall, much to the consternation of early Americans as it shortened baseball season dramatically.

After summer was invented the Earth slowly warmed and, instead of enjoying the warm glow of it all like sensible people, psuedo-scientists and there followers got all in a dither about it and concocted all manner of cockeyed schemes to make it all go away. King Canute could have told them it was a fool’s errand to try to stop the tides, but some folks never learn from history. Probably because they’re ignorant of history.

No then, the Sumers of ancient Sumeria… forget it, it’s summer. Relax. You’ll feel better.

A Four Day Late New His Story of June

june

June is named for Juno, the Roman Goddess of teachers and graduation ceremonies celebrated by letting the monkeys out. Juno is usually depicted wearing a white belt, white shoes, a long toga, or gown, with a tasseled flat square on her head. The latter represents a mortarboard, or hod, for her being a Mason, or cementhead in the vernacular. The tassel dangling from the mortarboard stands for remembering or something, I don’t rightly recall. Anyway, the association with this square topper with knowing is where the expression, “Off the top of my head” comes from.

June is also the month when summer starts. The word summer, related to simmer, means, “God, it’s hot.” Though in Roman times it was, “Goddess, it’s hot.” Juno herelf was not hot, but rather more like a neat and tidy old maid schoolmarm from the Greek island of Lesbos, where grooming in schools was practically a cult.

New Bird Rebus Sightings for Spring 2022

Another five more birds seen around the house, around the yard actually, to add to the Bird Spotter’s Rebus Guide collection bringing same to a grand total of fifty, count ’em 50. Of couse fifty is 950 short of a grand, so not much of a grand total. All the same it shows you can successfully go bird watching without leaving the premises, if that’s your bent. And if you spend all day looking at birds, you’re pretty bent. All seriousness aside, here’s those five, count ’em 5, bird rebuses as promised:

brown-creeper1 brown-creeper2
cedar-waxwing1 cedar-waxwing2
house-finch1 house-finch2
magnolia1 magnolia2
sharp-shinned1 sharp-shinned2

If you want to try to solve the previous forty-five, count ’em 45, here’s the link:
