Even though it is a little cooler


I’m sorry not to have my comic strip report today, but Comics Kingdom had a major failure when I was figuring to write up three months’ worth of The Amazing Spider-Man story. So instead let me underscore my claims last week about how hot it was with this photograph of a real thing a block away from my house, where the telephone pole won’t go outside without some bottled water:

Photograph of a telephone pole. A plastic disposable water bottle is strapped to the pole by some cyan-and-white striped plastic ribbon.
Also in the neighborhood: a tree that’s got a sign reading just ‘FREE’ taped to its side. I would assume this was something for Squirrel Freecycle except that whatever it was, was taken. Unless it was the tree.

It’s cooled down some but that’s the heat wave we had.

  1. Apparently the Free Tree-ers have hit your neighborhood, the same radical organization which liberated the telephone poles so squirrels could use them for squirrel block parties without written permission from AT&T, back in 2013.

    1. Oh, well, I’m not going to argue that, then. I’ve been happy with the way the telephone poles have moved since they were free. Nearly none of them have fallen down and that’s great, by my lights. We had a light fall down, but that’s not a telephone pole.
