DOG DAYS

Dog Days are the hot, muggy days of sultry summer, associated by the Romans (dies caniculares) with the influence of the dog star, Sirius, which is high in the sky during summer days. Dog days are said to last for "more than one month but less than two," from July until early September.


If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.
Bob Hope (1903-2003)
