Only a few minute’s drive from our house
is a heap of sand so big that people come from
hundreds of miles away to play there with dune buggies,
four-wheelers and motorcycles.
Our family has been known to join in the insanity
of careening over the dunes without any way of knowing
if there’s a cliff or an oncoming vehicle over the next hill.
This time we just played in the sand.
We pretended we went to Tatooine to look for
womp rats, banthas and jawas.
Failing that, the youngsters decide to re-create...
the Great Pit of Carkoon to capture prey.
Keeping an eye out for Tusken Raiders,
Young T works swiftly on the excavation.
Baby J helps.
Young T makes a hole big enough
to hold Jabba the Hutt.
They use The Force to put their victim under a spell.
He surrenders his wallet, his keys and his cell phone.
Quick! Bury him before he regains his senses.
Wow. How did that happen?
You kids come back with my car!
How cute, he's trying to dig himself out.
Baby J helps.
He's getting out...RUN!

If the calendar insists it is spring in March
when we are still dealing with
iced-up car windows and frozen mud;
then we're not
giving up summer
until September twenty-second.
We're wearing flip-flops everywhere--HA!
Take THAT, Mr. Weatherman.
