Hot in the Summer

May has drifted by and now where smack into the start of Summer- hope everyone is enjoying the long days.

Last month was a busy month on the Blender, as you can see by the wide selection of Front Page Picks as well as by reading over last month's Blender Board comments- we seem to have the making of a soap opera or two in here somewhere.

This month we're featuring another a ramble by a Blender regular, a response to last month's semi-anonymous piece.

Hope you enjoy this month's issue. And if you enjoy it half as much as I did putting it together, then you will have enjoyed it half as much as me. Or, err, something.

--Kirk, Blender-Keeper

To close, a poem put together like an old honky tonk piano. The last five lines could be a work unto themselves.
