Artists Still Crazy, Dogs Lying Low, as Dog Days Settle In
This image of melting ice cream swirled with chocolate syrup is intended to answer the question, “How hot is it?”
Do parents do this kind of thing in the 21st century? My mother and father taught little toddler me to responded to their question, “What’s the brightest star in the sky?” with the shamelessly coached response, “Sirius, the dog star!” I remember knowing the answer but had no idea what the dog star was. If you’re in the same boat, you can follow this link to read about Sirius and why the hottest summer days are called “dog days.”
Heat does not seem to dampen the zany ways of artists. Painters Jack Warden and David Grath proved irrepressible on Sunday evening.
Sarah enjoyed the tepid Lake Michigan water this morning and afterward was happy to lie in front of the fan at the bookstore.
Who's crazier during the dog days, dogs or artists?
