Living in paradise has its ‛pitfalls’

Dear Sir,

How many times has someone asked you lately, “Hot enough for you?”

The answer is, yes! These are truly the dog days of summer — whatever that is.

We try not to run our air conditioner all day, maybe to cut down on the Belco bill. But when my roll-on deodorant starts to roll off, I know it’s time to hit the remote.

We tried running the fan on high, but that just seems to circulate the hot air.

We know summer will not last for ever and also know that five or six months from now, we’ll complain about how cold it is.

Hot, cold, rain, shine — I think this is the best place to be and don’t want to live anywhere else.

Get up early one morning and watch the sun come up over Hamilton Harbour and tell me you would like to live elsewhere. After all, we don’t need a travel authorisation to come home from St George’s or Dockyard!

Enjoy the rest of your summer and realise how fortunate you are to live here.
